Forests

International Paper couldn’t make products without its primary raw material, wood. Our connections to working forests and those who manage them responsibly help us ensure a continuous and sustainable supply of fiber. We use our influence for good to combat illegal logging, encourage forest stewardship and support forest ecosystems. We connect our customers with certified sources of fiber, and, in turn, their use of wood-based products encourages landowners to maintain forests by providing a direct financial incentive to keep working forests working.
