We promote an inclusive and diverse culture where all individuals feel welcome, valued and included. We form teams that reflect our communities and drive exceptional results.

Inclusive teams promote a sense of belonging that encourages everyone to contribute and are consistent with our vision and The Sylvamo Promise. We offer tools and training to help our employees master their current jobs, broaden their skills and advance their careers.



The Sylvamo Promise



We believe in the promise of paper to educate, communicate and entertain. Paper connects us to one another and is an enduring bond to renewable natural resources. Our purpose is to produce the paper you need in the most responsible and sustainable ways.

We aim high, innovate and create value for our customers and investors. The future of paper deserves a company committed to the success of the entire ecosystem. From the forests we love, to the communities where we live, to those who rely on our paper, we know the well-being of each depends on the well-being of all. 

The Sylvamo Promise is the blueprint for our vision, mission and values, and ties directly in with our sustainability strategy.

Employee Inclusion Networks 


To support our employees and foster an inclusive and diverse workplace, we created Employee Inclusion Networks, “EINs”, which are voluntary, employee-led groups that provide a forum for team members to connect and engage with one another through common interests, building on our diversity and growing our collective strength. EIN members represent us in our communities and assist with recruiting.

In 2022, we formed  the Women in Operations EIN and the Women in Leadership EIN. That yearr, we also joined the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP) in support of fostering an inclusive and diverse culture in which all colleagues can thrive. Established by UN Global Compact and UN Women, the WEP provides guidance to businesses on promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace. The WEP recognizes the responsibility that corporations have in gender equality and women’s empowerment. Our implementation and support of the WEPs directly complements our commitment to inclusion and diversity.
