Healthy, diverse, and sustainable forests provide critical habitat for wildlife. At Georgia-Pacific, our efforts include:

  • Protecting endangered species, restoring forest ecosystems, and promoting wildlife diversity
  • 3.4 million seedlings planted since 2018 through our direct investments in conservation projects, with an additional 400,000+ trees planted on the properties surrounding GP facilities.
  • Committing to a 1:1 philosophy—for every one tree we use, at least one tree is regrown.
