International Paper APPM Ltd., has been involved in community development work since its inception. But only in 1995, the concept of strengthening its relations with the local stakeholders gained momentum. After its acquisition by International Paper and as part of aligning processes towards IP's global sustainability focus areas, the company reinforced its commitment and outlined its focus areas as education, environment and employee engagement.
In 2013, the IP India Foundation, a wholly owned subsidiary of International Paper APPM, registered under the Section 25 of the Companies Act, was established with a vision of creating a positive impact in the communities around our manufacturing facilities and in farm forestry areas.
