Improving Our Footprint

Our sustainability strategy is embedded in our vision, mission and core values.

We view sustainability-related risks and opportunities as additional ways to strengthen our business and generate value for our stakeholders today and in the future. At International Paper, manufacturing excellence is core to our success, but our most valuable connection is with our employees and ensuring their safety and well-being. We will not be satisfied until we are an injury-free workplace. Our goal of an injury-free workplace is just one of International Paper's 12 voluntary sustainability goals. This section outlines our commitment and progress toward our goals most closely connected to manufacturing.


Of all of International Paper’s activities, manufacturing has the largest impact on the environment. So we measure progress against our targets for manufacturing in terms of efficiency and energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, fiber loss, waste and the safety of our workplace.
