Become a Diverse Supplier
International Paper's Supplier Diversity Program recognizes suppliers who are certified as a minority owned, woman owned, veteran owned or economically disadvantaged owned business by an approved third-party organization.
Certification is a required validation process that ensures and gives formal acknowledgment that a business is actually owned, controlled, and operated by the diverse applicant(s). This process includes an application and document review, on-site interview and confirmation.
Please be aware that there are agency costs involved with most minority and women business enterprise certification and those costs are the sole responsibility of the supplier seeking certification as a diverse business.
Certified businesses are invited to register in the International Paper Supplier Diversity Registration Portal. In order to complete a profile, you will be required to upload proof of your certification (e.g. current certificate or letter from a third-party party certifying organization.
