Wood Purchasing Policy

Klabin S.A., a company in the pulp and paper segment, manages its operations based on its Sustainability Policy and on the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) principles and criteria.

When it is necessary to purchase non-certified wood, Klabin follows the orientation of the same norms applied to controlled wood and does its best to avoid acquiring wood or wood fiber in the following category:

  • Wood from illegal exploitation.
  • Wood resulting from exploitation practices that violate civil and traditional rights.
  • Wood from forests in which the high conservation value is threatened by management activities.
  • Wood from forests that have been converted into farming or designed for uses other than forestry.
  • Wood from forests where genetically modified trees are grown.
