"In Accordance" Core
This GRI Content Index is provided to assist readers in understanding how our report aligns with the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards. This index includes Core indicators as well as a number of additional indicators that we have determined are relevant to our business. This report follows the GRI Standards first updated in 2016. We continue to evaluate issues that are material to our company and expand our disclosures. We report on an annual basis. Our previous report was published in July 2020. Financial information and disclosures can be found in our 2020 Annual Performance Summary.
All data are reported as of Dec. 31, 2020, unless otherwise stated. Data is included from all global operations. We do not collect data on any joint venture in which we do not have a controlling interest. In some cases, our 2010 baseline data, as well as other historical data, have been restated to reflect acquisitions and joint ventures where International Paper has a controlling interest. Where appropriate, we report historical data for comparative purposes, as well as data normalized to metric tons of production for a given year. We do not provide external assurance. Data parameters and calculation methods use a combination of international, government, industry and company standards and protocols. International Paper made reasonable effort to ensure the information presented is accurate and complete.
We welcome suggestions and encourage open dialogue about opportunities to improve. Please contact us to provide feedback or to request more information about topics covered in this report.
