São Paulo, July 22, 2019 – On Tuesday (16), Klabin participated in an important event organized by the Global Compact Network Brazil at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York. With the goal of debating the initiatives of Brazil’s private sector in applying the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the second edition of “SDGs in Brazil – The Role of the Private Sector” gathered some 80 people, who included representatives from major companies and international organizations, sustainability experts and investors.

In addition to sponsoring the event, Klabin was responsible for leading a presentation throughout the day. The company’s Sustainability Consultant, Ivone Namikawa, talked about the importance of forests for the planet’s prosperity and its direct relationship to Klabin’s business growth, and discussed the company’s constant concern with the development of communities located near its operations. “Showing our innovative interventions in the company’s value chain to accelerate the reach of the SDGs is important for reinforcing our commitment to sustainability and for inspiring actions by others on this agenda,” said Namikawa.

In 2016, Klabin voluntarily adhered to the Sustainable Development Goals created by the United Nations. The initiative brings governments, civil society and the private sector together in a global agenda for people, the planet, peace and prosperity, setting priorities for a prosperous future. Since then, Klabin has worked to contribute to the agenda by further integrating the SDGs into the company’s strategic planning.

Você sabia que a Klabin projetou um bonde aéreo sobre o Rio Tibagi para ligar de forma mais rápida a Unidade Monte Alegre ao Centro de Telêmaco Borba, no Paraná? Mais do que um meio de transporte dos nossos colaboradores, o Bondinho, como é carinhosamente chamado, é também uma atração turística da região. O projeto, inaugurado no dia 11 de novembro de 1959, se mantém em operação até hoje, e possui capacidade para 32 passageiros por cabine, em um percurso de 1.318 metros que leva 3 minutos e 40 segundos.

Já teve a oportunidade de andar no nosso bondinho? Deixe seus parabéns para o aniversariante do dia e conte como foi sua experiência nesse passeio. 🚠🎂
