Klabin launches the 2014 Sustainability Report
In its 16th edition, the publication presents information on Klabin’s activities in the social, environmental and economic spheres
São Paulo, June 25, 2015 – Klabin, Brazil’s largest packaging paper producer and exporter, launches its 2014 Sustainability Report, which presents and illustrates the most relevant aspects of the Company’s management.The publication discusses the results of the last year, the practices adopted to achieve them and the outlook for the future.
The report, now in its 16th edition, innovates by sharpening the focus on material topics, with topics of greater relevance to the strategic management of sustainability identified through a broad consultation of our various stakeholders, which contributed directly to the construction of our Materiality Matrix.
Major highlights include the social and environmental action plan for territorial development of cities influenced by the Puma Project, the new pulp plant under construction in the city of Ortigueira (Paraná); support for forestry certification of a group of 42 developed rural producers in the Médio Rio Tibagi (Paraná) region, which recognizes responsible planting and provides benefits for the entire production chain; and the recognition of best forestry stewardship practices by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an important international non-profit organization dedicated to sustainability.
The report also illustrates investments in the expansion of the use of renewable sources in the energy matrix.In recent years, Klabin has progressively replaced fuel oil with biomass (vegetable waste from forestry operations) to feed boilers, reaching a level of 86.5% renewable sources in energy generation.
These and other initiatives aimed at Klabin’s sustainable management are available in the 2014 Sustainability Report, prepared based on guidelines issued by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), an NGO that serves as a benchmark for methodology for accountability with corporate stakeholders the world over.
