International Paper has been recognised by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the 2018 World's Most Ethical Companies.
International Paper has been recognised for 12 consecutive years, and is one of only two honourees in the forestry, paper and packaging industry, underscoring its commitment to leading with integrity and prioritising ethical business practices.
In 2018, 135 honourees were recognised, spanning 23 countries and 57 industries.
‘As a company, we value character as much as capability. We look for all our 52,000 employees across the globe who not only have talent, skills and work ethic, but who also are dedicated to the principle of doing the right things, in the right ways, for the right reasons, all of the time. This is the IP way,’ said Mark Sutton, chairman and CEO. ‘It is an honour to once again be included on this list and to be among companies whose principles and practices uphold the highest standards of ethics and corporate social responsibility.’
