How International Paper Manages Thriving People and Communities

Our workforce is made up of more than 38,000 people in communities across 10 countries. Our Vision 2030 goal, and our first-ever diversity targets, embrace our global culture and commit us to build on it.

Our diversity and inclusion strategy, with initiatives across our employee attraction, retention and engagement programs, is driving our efforts to create a culture where all individuals are valued, engaged and contributing to our success.

Diversity and inclusion inform our community engagement strategy as well. Our Vision 2030 target challenges us to improve the lives of 100 million people by 2030 through initiatives that address unmet basic needs. We engage our employees and partners across our four signature areas — education, hunger, health and wellness and disaster relief — to deliver on our promise.
