São Paulo, November 5, 2015 – Klabin, Brazil’s largest paper producer and exporter, received on the evening of Wednesday (4) the award for highlight in Water Management from Exame Sustainability Guide. The company was also shortlisted by the publication as one of the most sustainable in Brazil.

The survey of more than 200 companies nationwide considers the main references of indicators for business sustainability in Brazil and in the world.
