We are proud to belong to an industry that positively impacts Brazil and the planet. But there is more to be done by Suzano, as it continues to fulfill its purpose of renewing life inspired by trees. In 2020, we made a set of public commitments in line with the SDGs, such as lifting 200,000 people out of poverty by 2030. We will produce more clean energy in our operations and advance our efforts to reduce our carbon emissions. We will continue to evolve on issues such as biodiversity conservation, waste and water management and, not least, diversity, equity and inclusion.


What is Most Relevant to our Stakeholders

In 2021, Suzano updated its materiality matrix through consultations with external and internal stakeholders. From the analysis of the information gathered, we arrived at a list of the eight most relevant topics, which were incorporated into the sustainability strategy and management, and direct the focus of the annual report.

How Suzano Contributes to the Bioeconomy

From the eucalyptus trees that we plant and harvest, we have the potential to create solutions and products that do not yet exist and will be able to replace materials from fossil sources, contributing to a low-carbon economy and a more sustainable future. The way we develop these solutions is what we call innovability – innovation in the service of sustainability – a concept that is incorporated into projects of different scales and maturities, and of different areas of the company. Currently, 70% of our Research and Development portfolio is made up of shortand medium-term projects – that is, projects that will be implemented within five years. Applications of lignin, microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), biocomposites and bio-oil are examples in this area. For the development of our solutions, we rely on numerous external partnerships that form a comprehensive collaboration network.

Cerrado Project

We will increase

our annual installed pulp production capacity by

more than


starting in 2024.

This will be possible thanks to the construction of a new plant in Ribas do Rio Pardo, with the capacity to produce 2.550 million tonnes of pulp per year. This is one of the largest private investments in Brazil, totaling R$19.3 billion. With this new unit, we will have the largest single-line pulp plant in the world, characterized by high competitiveness and eco-efficiency. We will use state-of-the-art technology to ensure stability and performance at the lowest possible cost and with the lowest environmental impact.
