MEMPHIS, TN -- International Paper (IP), a manufacturer and distributor of forest products, announced on June 28 that its U.S. pulp and paper mills and container plants are now third-party certified to ensure their products are made from sustainable wood fiber. To further expand its sustainable product offerings, IP will also pursue Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain-of-custody certification.
"Customers have choices in today's marketplace," said John Faraci, IP chairman and CEO. "We want our customers to know we are committed to making high-quality paper and packaging from sustainable sources. Independent, third-party certification is an important step in demonstrating that commitment."
