All data are reported as of Dec. 31, 2019, unless otherwise stated. Data are 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.
