Check out some of our local initiatives.

São Domingos Cooperative

São Mateus — ES

The São Domingos Cooperative was created by a group of people from the quilombola community of São Domingos, one of the most traditional groups in Espírito Santo. In 2013, community leaders approached Suzano to propose a partnership that could create jobs and generate income for the quilombola community.

That was the beginning of a project that continues to this day, focusing in two areas: professionalization in forest cultivation techniques and services provided by the Cooperative to Suzano, in our commercial farms and forest restoration areas.

Roda D'Água Cooperative

Conceição da Barra — ES

We hire eucalyptus farm maintenance and forest restoration services from participants in the Roda D’Água Cooperative (COOTRAQ), made up of rural workers from the quilombola communities of Roda D’Água and Morro da Onça, in the north of Espírito Santo.

Juventudes Multiplicadoras (“Young Multipliers”)

São Mateus — ES

The Juventudes Multiplicadoras (“Young Multipliers”) program aims to strengthen Suzano’s relationship with neighboring communities by training young leaders in more than 30 quilombola communities in Espírito Santo. In addition to the academic curriculum, with a focus on technical environmental training, participants in the program also have the opportunity to meet with Suzano professionals and work on projects that can benefit the community and the company, through a mutually beneficial relationship.

Coopyguá – Tupiniquim and Guarani Indigenous Farmers Cooperative

A cooperativa indígena conta com grupos de artesanatos, projetos de coleta de sementes de espécies nativas e de meliponicultura, que envolve produção de mel, pólen e cera feita por espécies de abelhas sem ferrão.
