• FSC honours International Paper as Responsible Forestry Champion

        • Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has recognised International Paper with an FSC Leadership Award for forest certification commitment and program innovation.

          The FSC Leadership Awards celebrate organisations and people who have demonstrated ‘extraordinary’ commitment to responsible forest management and FSC. Winners were selected by a jury panel of professionals, FSC staff, and board members and were announced at the FSC Leadership Awards ceremony on 5th October, at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles.

          International Paper was recognised for its US FSC certification strategy to increase the amount of FSC certified fiber used in packaging, pulp, and paper products. One of the ways International Paper increased the amount of FSC certified fiber was the development of its own FSC forest management group - Certified Forest Management LLC (CFM LLC).

          Jeremy Poirier, International Paper Fiber Certification Manager said, "we are extremely pleased with our fiber certification efforts and are thrilled with how many other landowners and wood suppliers have expressed interest. We continue to gain new members resulting in significant growth, increasing our CFM LLC group to a total of 342,500 acres. It is an honor to be recognised for our commitment to responsible forestry management."

          CFM LLC is managed by International Paper's fiber supply team and has become a cost-effective means for small private landowners to become FSC certified. As a result of International Paper's efforts with CFM LLC and the creation and support of International Paper-supplier-based FSC groups, the company has influenced the growth of more than 1 million acres of FSC lands and currently supports 40 suppliers who have FSC Chain of Custody certificates. This growth has helped International Paper achieve a 28 percent increase in certified fiber over its 2010 baseline and increased its annual volume of FSC certified tons by approximately 1.6 million tons.
