Our people are our most important resource, and by strengthening the communities where they live and work, we build a better future for all of us.



Operating Safely



Our most important responsibility is to ensure everyone returns home safe and well each day. At Sylvamo, we are focused on fostering a resilient safety culture. In 2023, we launched “People Before Paper.” The People Before Paper safety message was created to help our employees, contractors and other key stakeholders understand we care for people first, no matter what.
