To create the portfolio, S&P Global selects 30% of the companies evaluated and, from this list, the top 15% from each industry. Klabin figured among the most sustainable companies in the paper packaging industry.
“The ESG assessments of S&P Global are among the most meticulous and robust, which leaves us even prouder to become part of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices 2020-21 in both the World and Emerging Markets categories. Finally Suzano has achieved a high enough score to be included in the yearbook. Being part of the DJSI is one of the most important recognitions that a company can earn and only reinforces our long commitment to sustainability,” said Júlio Nogueira, Sustainability & Environment Corporate Manager.
