The IP Export Story

When it comes to exports, International Paper has a great story to tell. In 2015, 20% of U.S. manufactured products were exported in 2015, while importing into the U.S. market 0.02% of what we made overseas. We simply operate around the globe to serve customers in those markets.

Trans-Pacific Partnership

International Paper encourages Congress to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the largest regional trade agreement in history. This historic agreement will advance IP’s ability to attain greater market access for our products, as well as our customer’s products, and will be a key driver in combating illegal logging.

International Paper is a leader and proponent of domestic and international efforts to suppress illegal logging and trade. IP will continue to play a constructive role in the implementation of the 2008 Lacey Act amendments to ensure a sustainable global fiber supply.  As a global manufacturer, International Paper supports free trade agreements that embrace the principles of governments to oppose illegal logging around the world.
