Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Encouraging diversity, equity and inclusion is a responsibility of society as a whole, including companies. The topic is so important to us that it is part of one of our Culture Drivers, which holds that cultivating diversity makes us stronger. We believe that diversity of ideas and experiences is essential to making the planet a better place, which is why we work internally and externally to promote this concept. Learn more on the People and Culture page.

We have different initiatives to encourage diversity, equity and inclusion. Check out some of them.


In 2016, a group made up of individuals from different Suzano teams organically engaged with the topic of diversity. This is how Plural was born. Supported by the company’s leadership, the initiative works in five diversity-related areas, or affinity groups: generations, LGBTQIAP+, women, Black people and people with disabilities.

Developmental Initiatives

We have awareness and educational activities to prepare leaders who are more inclusive and help our entire team recognize and avoid unconscious biases.

Women on Board

In 2022, our company’s Board of Directors included three women, representing 33.3% of the nine seats of the body that creates and directs our business strategy. Because of this composition, we received the Women on Board (WOB) certification, which recognizes companies that promote diversity in the corporate environment through the participation of women on their Boards of Directors or Advisory Boards.

Empreendedorismo feminino

Fazemos parte do WE Ventures, fundo que apoia startups lideradas por mulheres, em parceria com Microsoft, Sebrae, M8 Partners e Bertha Capital. O incentivo ao empreendedorismo feminino ocorre por meio de cursos de capacitação e investimentos em empresas abertas por mulheres. Somos a primeira companhia do setor de papel e celulose a fazer parte da iniciativa e vamos investir até 
5 milhões de reais no projeto.

Contribuindo para o Futuro

No programa voluntário Contribuindo para o Futuro, feito em parceria com o Instituto Joule, trainees da Suzano mentoram e preparam para o mercado de trabalho estudantes de ensino universitário que fazem parte dos grupos de pessoas negras, com deficiência e LGBTQIAP+.
