August 23, 2023 (press release) –

Water is essential. Two-thirds of our planet is covered with water, yet only a small percentage is usable, so we must act to protect this valuable resource. At International Paper, water is a critical part of our manufacturing process, and so we have an opportunity to play a key role in conserving and protecting our local water resources.

Did you know 88% of water used in our mill manufacturing process in 2022 was treated and returned to the environment? We’ve made great strides in water conservation, but we still have work to do in order to meet our Vision 2030 goal to reduce water usage by 25% across our mill system.

We must pass this care of water on to the next generation. IP is partnering with local schools and other organizations in our communities to educate elementary school students on what it means to be a good steward of the water we have through IP’s Water is Wonderful curriculum. From the scarcity of clean, fresh water, to how IP uses water in our paper making process, students will learn about the role we all play in water stewardship.

By taking actionable steps, we are confident that we can achieve our water stewardship goals and contribute to a more sustainable future. Click here to access International Paper’s 2022 Sustainability Report and learn more about the company’s water target and initiatives.
