Global Certification & Procurement Policies
These policies define the global criteria and principles that we follow in our certification and responsible fiber procurement processes.
The Global Certification Policy defines the global criteria and principles that International Paper follows for the certification of our lands, and the wood or fiber purchasing systems for our facilities, to forest management, fiber procurement and/or chain of custody standards.
International Paper recognizes the intrinsic environmental, social and economic values of forested landscapes and we are committed to delivering the products our customers want, while ensuring the responsible stewardship of the world’s natural resources. We purchase wood fiber, recovered fiber and finished paper for use in the manufacture of our products. As a result we have a responsibility to our employees, customers and other stakeholders to ensure that these products contain wood fiber that has been responsibly managed and harvested.
