How we manage forests is a critical, yet often overlooked, solution in the fight against climate change. Improvements to land stewardship – Natural Climate Solutions – could cost-effectively avoid 11 gigatons of CO2 emissions per year, or one third of the mitigation needed to meet global climate commitments.
Alex Singleton is a fourth generation paper maker, although that was not his plan as a child.
The fiber supply manager at the International Paper containerboard mill in Rome said that — even as he saw his father go daily to a large Westvaco mill in Charleston, South Carolina — he never thought he’d have a career in the forest products industry.
But he’s not only forged a 30-year career. Singleton is one of three “stars” in a documentary produced for the Paper and Packaging Board titled “Paper Makers.”
September 13-19, 2020 is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, and International Paper is grateful for the generosity of three regional trucking companies that stepped up to #HelpFillTheBoxes through their transportation services – FirstFleet, Truck One, and FAB Express.
