International Paper Acknowledged for Forest Sustainability Efforts
International Paper, Memphis, Tenn., announced its U.S. pulp and paper mills and container plants are now third-party certified to ensure products are made from sustainable wood fiber.
Third-party certification guarantees the best harvesting practices are used to protect air, water, soils and wildlife, and that no wood comes from endangered forests. Consumers can choose products meeting the highest environmental standards by looking for a sustainability label on pulp, paper and packaging made by International Paper.
International Paper currently has several certifications from top independent national and international certification bodies, and intends to pursue Forest Stewardship Council chain-of-custody certification. These are the latest in a long history of commitments by International Paper to ensure the continuing health of the world’s forests.
