Getting a handle on natural resources

Third party certification

International Paper supports 3rd party certification ensuring wood is harvested from responsibly managed forests - not the promotion of one certification system over another. We believe the focus must be on improving the forestry standards on the 90% uncertified global forests rather than debating those forestlands already being managed with sustainable practices. Our use of a particular certification standard is dependent upon the location of the facility or forest – sourcing fiber from the closest source is one way that we ensure our environmental responsibility.
