Sustainable forestry doesn’t just happen in working forests. International Paper focuses on conserving the biodiversity and health of all forestland, including those that aren’t used to make products. We’re working with environmental advocates, government agencies, and other businesses to keep forests thriving.

Here’s how:

Through Forestland Stewards, our conservation collaborative with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, we’ve protected core habitats, including that of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker.

We’ve worked with a variety of stakeholders, like private landowners, government agencies and conservation groups, to develop science-based conservation plans to keep more than 600,000 acres of Southern pine, oak, bottomland hardwoods and woodlands healthy and intact.

We’re committed to conserving and restoring one million acres of ecologically significant forestland by 2030.

Learn more about all of our collaborations to manage, conserve and restore forestland in our most recent Global Citizenship Report.
