Sustainability

International Paper is dedicated to making people’s lives better by using renewable resources to make products people depend on every day. As a global paper and packaging company, with operations on five continents, our business creates the economic basis for many millions of acres of forest to exist around the world. We work hard to ensure all these acres are managed responsibly so the forest can thrive for generations to come. 
 
We have publicly announced 12 sustainability goals, where we commit ourselves to continuous improvement across nine categories focused on reducing our environmental impacts and influencing positive social change.  We also place emphasis on expanding strategic initiatives with organizations that share our vision for a sustainable future.
 
We believe our sustainability efforts are crucial to continuously improve our operations, rally employee support, advance impactful partnerships, help our customers and suppliers improve their sustainability footprint and, ultimately helps us achieve our vision to be one of the most respected and successful companies in the world.
