We Are a Climate-positive Company
With a forest area encompassing approximately 2.6 million hectares, including farms and conservation sites, and a daily planting of 1.2 million eucalyptus seedlings, coupled with our commitment to sustainable farm management, we actively contribute to the removal of carbon dioxide, a primary greenhouse gas, from the atmosphere. This distinction positions us as a climate-positive company.
Not only that: we have one of the lowest indicators of greenhouse gas emission intensity in our industry, according to data from the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI). Visit the TPI website to learn more.
Measuring Our Climate Impacts
We have two important tools to help us assess our impact on the climate, aiming to reduce it, and to support our decision-making and innovation processes:
A technique for assessing the environmental aspects and potential impacts associated with our products and services, to guide our efforts to reduce our impact and develop a circular economy strategy. Currently, 88.5% of our product portfolio undergoes life cycle assessments
An essential tool to account for all remotion that occurs within our operations and the direct and indirect scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions. Based on the Inventory, we identify where most of our emissions occur and can create strategies to reduce them. It is based on this calculation that we commit to strategic actions, such as our Commitments to Renewing Life, with confidence and transparency. To learn more, check out our Greenhouse Gas Inventory.
Climate is one of the material topics that consider our impact on the economy, society and the environment, managed through a robust climate governance structure.
In addition to several areas and departments being directly responsible for initiatives to address climate change, climate-related matters are supervised by the company’s senior leadership through the Board of Directors and the Sustainability Committee, the body responsible for defining and monitoring the climate change management strategy.
We also formally support the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and follow its recommendations as a reference for reporting potential climate-related financial impacts. Read more on the Sustainability Indicators page.
More than 88% of our energy is renewable and we are working to make our energy matrix increasingly cleaner. Check out our initiatives on the Energy page.
