Suzano, a global reference in the manufacture of bioproducts developed from the cultivation of eucalyptus, promotes the planting of seedlings in ecological corridors in the Cerrado, Amazon and Atlantic Forest biomes. The initiative is engaged by volunteers, employees, service providers of the company and their families, and is in line with the company's commitment to connect, by 2030, half a million hectares of priority areas for the conservation of the biodiversity of these biomes, which is equivalent to four times the city of Rio de Janeiro.  

"It is very important the participation and engagement of our employees in this activity, as well as other partners of the company. We believe that a fairer and more sustainable world is built from transformative attitudes that can influence people, motivate changes and positively impact society and the environment,'' says Marcelo Pereira, Suzano's Forest Environment manager.

In 2023, three seedling planting actions have already been carried out near the units of Imperatriz (MA), Três Lagoas (MS) and Mucuri (BA). In line with this commitment, the company has also been working to engage owners of neighboring regions, whose areas are on the routes of the ecological corridors. The goal is to encourage them to also be part of the initiative and implement sustainable management models in productive areas, as well as restoration actions that favor the passage and conservation of biodiversity.

"The preservation of different forms of life allows us to maintain the ecological balance on Earth, which is fundamental to our existence. The fragmentation of habitats represents a risk to biodiversity and ecological corridors are a way to reduce the problem, as they enable greater ecological interaction between species through the displacement of animals and the increase of native vegetation cover, consequently favoring the perpetuity of biodiversity," adds Marcelo.

In addition to acting in the implementation of ecological corridors, from existing fragments of native forest, the company already allocates 40% of its areas for conservation, which corresponds to more than 1 million hectares. Suzano is also the maintainer of an environmental reserve with seven thousand hectares of Atlantic Forest in regeneration, the Parque das Neblinas, located in Bertioga, São Paulo.
