empowering the global reforestation community. The platform facilitates the sharing
of best practices and promotes responsible forestation measures as well as scalable

of our innovation initiatives, Suzano is the first Brazilian company to join
the group. One of Suzano's long-term objectives to 2030 is to preserve and connect
half a million hectares of designated high-priority land in the Cerrado,
Atlantic Forest and Amazon biomes. It is on the basis of this commitment that
the company joins the 1t.org initiative and begins to work towards the
identification and engagement of other partners to join this ambitious target.
on Suzano’s partnership, Pablo Machado, Executive Director for China, who is currently
responsible for Suzano's sustainability work said, “‘Renewing life inspired by trees'
is one of Suzano’s core values. Committing to 1t.org’s mission was therefore an
obvious decision. Our ambitious conservation work will contribute to the 1t.org
mission to conserve, restore and grow more one trillion trees by 2030, and we
look forward to cooperating with the existing partners and engaging new ones to
achieve this mutual target.".
pledge to connect 500,000 hectares of priority biodiversity areas in Brazil
highlights the importance of maintaining and restoring biodiversity to the
company. By establishing these biodiversity corridors our mission is to address
the adverse impacts of forest fragmentation on native flora and fauna. It is
particularly important to see key players in the industry engage for
conservation within and beyond their operations. At 1t.org we are excited to
have Suzano join our first cohort of global pledges and look forward to seeing
the results of their work.” said Nicole Schwab, Co-Director Nature-Based
Solutions, World Economic Forum.
as well as 1t.org, understands that forests are vital for the prosperity of the
planet. Our global forests are responsible for capturing and sequestering carbon
from the atmosphere, regulating global temperatures and freshwater flows, replenishing
groundwater, anchoring fertile soil and acting as flood barriers. Today, Suzano
has 975,000 hectares of land designated for conservation under its management.
vast forest base lends to the company’s status as a climate positive company,
given it captures more greenhouse gases than it emits. As well as
its biodiversity goals, Suzano has a series of clear and ambitious targets
including its SDG-aligned Long-Term Goals tackling issues relating to carbon
emissions, poverty, plastic pollution, inequality and more. These commitments,
as well as the biodiversity goals, are public and can be monitored through the https://centraldeindicadores.suzano.com.br/en/long-term-goals2/.
