Regenerative Economy

The way we approach sustainability is rooted in the concept of a regenerative economy, which holds that human activity should, instead of depleting, conserve and restore the planet’s natural resources, creating ways of doing business in harmony with the environment and communities.

We strive to be a regenerative company that:

Reduces risks

Reverses biodiversity loss

Increases the offering of services that are essential to life, such as food, raw materials and water

Careful approach across the Value Chain

We follow the principles of a regenerative economy across our entire value chain: in choosing land to plant eucalyptus; in the sustainable management of our farms; in the conservation of native forests; in optimizing and reusing resources in our plants; and in the logistics involved in the distribution of our products.

Material topics

To create an effective ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategy, a company must conduct a materiality assessment to identify the most relevant topics for its business based on their impact on the economy, society and the environment. At Suzano, these material topics — defined through a comprehensive study to assess how the perceptions from different stakeholders in the sectors in which we operate intersect with topics that are important to our business—become the foundation and guide of our sustainability strategy.

In addition, when creating our materiality matrix, we followed the guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), and incorporated the most current concepts in this area. Learn more on the Sustainability Indicators page.
