The Vision 2020 Goals

International Paper

Our entire business depends upon the sustainability of forests. We will continue to lead the world in responsible forest stewardship to ensure healthy and productive forest ecosystems for generations to come. We tackle the toughest issues in our value chain, reduce our environmental footprint and promote the long-term sustainability of natural capital. 

Our sustainability strategy is embedded in our vision, mission and The IP Way Forward. We recognize the importance of aligning our business with the needs of the world around us and we’re committed to continuous improvement and transparency around our sustainability goals. We set 12 voluntary goals with a 2010 baseline aimed at improving our impact on people and the planet, and are happy to share our progress. These goals are in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations.
