Thriving People and Communities

International Paper employees are the heart of our business and the foundation of our success. We are tireless in our efforts to foster a safe, inclusive and collaborative culture where each of us can thrive. Beyond our workplace, we are investing to strengthen the resilience of our communities so that they, too, can prosper.

We believe that investments in our people and communities are investments in our success. Our approach to employee well-being begins with safety. Above all else, it is our highest responsibility.

Our diversity and inclusion framework—Workforce, Workplace, Marketplace—embraces diversity within our workforce and across our supply chain. Our comprehensive diversity and inclusion strategy drives our efforts to develop our employees’ capabilities, ensure diverse talent pools, improve retention and increase engagement.

Thriving People and Communities

We are committed to achieving zero serious injuries for employees and contractors. Our safety target, which we restated in our Vision 2030 goals, is non-negotiable, and is a shared responsibility: We look out for each other to ensure everyone returns home safely every day.
