International Paper has been recognized for 12 consecutive years, and is one of only two honorees in the forestry, paper and packaging industry.
In 2018, 135 honorees were recognized, spanning 23 countries and 57 industries. Measuring and improving culture, leading authentically and committing to transparency, diversity and inclusion were all priorities for honorees.
“As a company, we value character as much as capability. We look for all our 52,000 employees across the globe who not only have talent, skills and work ethic, but who also are dedicated to the principle of doing the right things, in the right ways, for the right reasons, all of the time. This is the IPWay,” said Mark Sutton, chairman and CEO.
Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35%), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20%), culture of ethics (20%), governance (15%) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10%).
