Our Approach To Sustainability
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.
International Paper is strongly connected with our world. We use natural resources to make our products, and we work to make them efficiently, leaving a smaller environmental footprint over time.
We insist on high ethical values and professional standards that maintain and strengthen our reputation for integrity, fairness and good science.
As part of managing our business, we regularly assess global mega-trends and the associated risks and opportunities of our business.
We measure and report progress on 12 voluntary sustainability goals to demonstrate this commitment and guide continuous performance improvement.
Our business decisions are based on a governing structure that considers risks and attracts investments, driving value for shareholders and other valued stakeholders.
Sustainability is integral to all International Paper operations and is a shared responsibility of all International Paper employees.
International Paper is committed to excellence in environmental, health, safety, sustainability practices and performance.
International Paper engages a wide variety of stakeholders to broaden our perspective and validate our internal assessments.
International Paper follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework to guide its Sustainability Report.
