Sustainability is in our daily lives and a part of our strategy for today and tomorrow. We work to be a competitive company and a leading player in the transformation of our value chain and society.
We want to help make people's lives more sustainable through our products, and to let them know that we work to generate positive impacts that stem from responsible operations.
In our chain
AWe operate throughout our chain to ensure efficiency of resources, reduction of waste and environmental impacts—from eucalyptus seedlings to the final product. But we go beyond: we seek open dialogue and a sustainable vision in the relationship with our employees and customers, partnership with suppliers, and financial processes.
In the environment
We invest in the preservation of more than 900,000 hectares of native forest and conducted one of the largest restoration programs in Brazil. Our environmental initiatives contribute toward climate regulation, preservation of biodiversity and ecosystems, and protection of soils, rivers and their springs.
People are our motivation and we want to help in their development, both inside and outside the company. We respect the diversity of our employees and work to make them protagonists of their professional goals. Our projects with neighboring communities focus on generating income and improving education, enabling empowerment, quality of life and the financial autonomy of people. We seek a healthy relationship and open dialogue with the communities where we operate, NGOs, social movements, governments, and other companies.
Given our understanding of the complexity of the challenges and opportunities that exist, we conducted a collaborative process to formulate our strategy that took into account the multiplicity of visions of the publics with which we interact. For this, we undertook a commitment to expand our role in the value chain and in society with the creation of long-term targets to guide our Sustainbility Strategy over the next ten years, a period that the United Nations calls the "Decade of Action."
