International Paper is one of the world’s largest wood products companies, with revenue in 2020 of over US$20 billion and approximately 48,000 employees. It is also one of the most significant purchasers of wood fiber. This means that its sourcing choices can have a profound influence on how forests are managed. The company's current fiber procurement policy is available here.
WWF and International Paper will review the strategies in place to achieve International Paper's 100% sustainably sourced fiber goal by 2030, continue to grow the company's Forest Stewardship Council® group certificate in the United States, and strengthen their internally developed tool for delivering sustainably sourced fiber.
