Brazil’s Suzano Joins Club of Eco Friendly Companies

Suzano Bahia Sul Papel e Celulose S.A., one of Latin America’s largest integrated producers of pulp and paper, announced the award of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for the management of its 100,000 hectares of forest plantations in the Brazilian states of Bahia and EspÀ­rito Santo, and also for its industrial activities in Mucuri, Bahia.

“FSC certification is based on conducting Suzano’s activities with the concept of sustainability, that is to say, as well as being economically viable they are environmentally appropriate and socially beneficial.


“It also re-emphasizes Suzano’s commitment at all the stages of formation and use of the forest – from research through growing and harvesting to final delivery of the wood to production,” says Suzano’s Natural Resources Division Manager Luiz Cornacchioni.


“Having the FSC seal for our forest management and product chain of custody (“COC”) is undoubtedly a differential that will strengthen our marketing operations, especially in Europe and the U.S., where we expect to be able to operate in new niches.


“Today, clients choose suppliers not only on price and product quality, but also on the basis of what action the company takes that shows serious and consistent operation with social responsibility,” says Rogerio Ziviani, Suzano’s International Business Director.


The FSC is an initiative for environmental conservation and sustainable development of the world’s forests. It was created in 1993 and involves environmentalists, researchers, forestry engineers, forest products industry leaders, traders and employees, indigenous communities and other forest peoples, and certifying institutions in 34 countries.


Suzano’s Mucuri Plant was audited and recommended by Brazil’s IMAFLORA (Forestry and Farming Management and Certification) Institute, which is the Brazilian representative of the SmartWood Program of the Rainforest Alliance, an entity registered with the FSC.


Suzano Bahia Sul Papel e Celulose is one of the largest fully integrated producers of paper and eucalyptus pulp in Latin America, with pulp production capacity of 1.1 million tons/year and a paper production capacity of 820 thousand tons/year.


It offers a broad range of pulp and paper products for the domestic and international markets, with a leadership position in key Brazilian markets. It has four principal product lines: eucalyptus pulp, uncoated woodfree printing and writing paper, coated woodfree printing and writing paper, and paperboard.
