Sustainability: Improving Quality of Life

Sustainability comes naturally to people at Georgia-Pacific. People are our top consideration, and we work each day to further develop trusted relationships.  Nature is something that we conscientiously think about in making business decisions.  The market needs of our customers drive us to create solutions that will be preferred and create value for society.

Georgia Pacific: Our definition of sustainability

At Georgia-Pacific, we believe the role of business in society is to help people improve their lives by providing preferable products and services, while consuming fewer resources over time.

We are able to perform this role by embedding sustainability into our company culture and business decisions.

Georgia-Pacific: Sustainability Statement

We consciously make business decisions considering the tradeoffs that exist between the three interconnected dimensions of sustainability: People, Nature & Market.

  • Although the three respective sustainability dimensions may serve as unique focus areas for GP, each is always in contact with the other two.
  • As we analyze the effect that a business decision will have on one dimension, we never lose sight of the other dimensions, and the potential for associated implications and tradeoffs.
The Three Dimensions of Sustainability
Georgia-Pacific believes sustainability has three dimensions – social, environmental and economic.
