IIP (International Paper Institute) was created in late 2007 to develop, coordinate and execute initiatives and programs related to corporate social responsibility at International Paper of Brazil.
Initially, the project relied on the voluntary participation of approximately 200 professionals from International Paper (IP) units, discussing the organization directions, action and principles that determine its focus on corporate social responsibility: the will to use education to strengthen social and environmental awareness among our children and youth.
To do this, the Institute defined its main goals as being to mobilize, engage and commit its partners, employees, to participate in innovative social responsibility programs, aimed at strengthening social and environmental awareness for sustainable development of the community in which it operates.
The IIP is a Public Interest Civil Society Organization (OSCIP). Approximately 30,000 people throughout Brazil are impacted by the Institute’s projects.
