Climate Change in the value chain program

Climate Change in the Value Chain Program

Suzano is the world’s largest eucalyptus pulp producer and one of Latin America’s leading paper producers. We are a global benchmark in developing sustainable and innovative solutions from renewable sources, we recognize the importance and need to play a proactive role and be an agent of change in initiatives aimed at solving the challenges faced by society. These include the climate crisis, caused by the increased concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which is increasingly affecting the environment all over the planet.

To mitigate and adapt ourselves to climate change, we incorporated the topic in our business model through a systemic and collaborative approach that connected the local and global agenda. In this journey, as part of Suzano’s Sustainability strategy, we announced the commitment to create and share value, evaluating increasingly more positive impacts through our long-term targets:

Also, to further strengthen Suzano’s relations with its suppliers and encourage them to undertake joint commitments to reduce emissions, we struck an alliance with CDP, an international nonprofit organization. This alliance will engage and assist our suppliers in measurements, data transparency, establishment of targets, as well as the assessment of risks and opportunities related to climate change.

The program will help expand knowledge on the topic within the value chain, resulting in the maturation of emissions management by suppliers. We will help these partners improve their performance so that we can work together in fighting climate change.
