International Paper complies with all laws related to conflict minerals and does not support sourcing of conflict minerals originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). International Paper, through its own due diligence, has confirmed that the materials we source for the production of our paper, pulp and packaging products do not include and, by their nature, are not composed of, conflict minerals.
Furthermore, as part of our strategic sourcing process, we include a due diligence risk assessment and pre-screen of suppliers. The assessment includes inquiry into each supplier’s policies, as well as training and verification practices regarding those policies, including asking about a Conflict Minerals Policy. We expect our suppliers to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct and all applicable laws: http://www.internationalpaper.com/company/suppliers/supplier-code-of-conduct
