Sustainability

We believe that sustainability is the capacity to allow for renewed cycles of growth. This requires building the foundation for an expansion that combines competitive operations, social environmental responsibility and quality relationships.

Ecofuturo Institute

The Ecofuturo Institute is a nonprofit organization. It was founded in 1999 by the Suzano Group, whose main sponsor is Suzano Papel e Celulose. The Institute coordinates activities between civil society, government and the private sector to expand social environmental awareness by spreading knowledge, stewardship practices and impact measurement. In line with these aims, the Institute fosters projects that contribute to promoting literacy and environmental conservation.

Community Library

Learning to read and write is the foundation for an education of quality and the development of critical awareness. The community library program helps to define and implement public policies for literacy and libraries. Its goal is to increase access to books and enforce Law 12.244/10, which establishes that all educational institutions in Brazil, whether public or private, must have libraries by 2020. Ecofuturo works in partnership with the government, the private sector and local communities to create libraries in public schools that are open to the community and frained by the Institute to promote reading.
