Klabin hosts Annual Meeting of the Logistics Operation in Paranaguá

Paraná, July 20, 2018 – Klabin, Brazil’s leading producer and exporter of packaging paper and the country’s only company to offer a one-stop solution for hardwood, softwood and fluff pulp, hosted on July 12 and 13 the Annual Meeting of the Logistics Operation in Paranaguá, Paraná. Held at Klabin’s Unit in the city and at Coopanexos (Cooperative of Cargo and Associated Freight Transport), the meeting showcased Klabin’s results in the two years of operation in Paranaguá and featured actions on safety and environmental awareness for more than 230 employees and contractors who work in the region.

During the two-day event, logistics and port operators, shipping agents and dockworkers participated in debates and lectures on workplace safety and the company’s environmental initiatives, such as Selective Trash Collection projects. Third-party port operators and drivers also watched the play "We're all safety agents”, of the Na Mão Certa (On the Right Track) Program, produced by Childhood Brasil. Klabin became a signatory to the national project that seeks to combat the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents on highways.

Both groups celebrated the milestone, reached in June, of 100 ships loaded with hardwood pulp (eucalyptus) sailing from the Port of Paranaguá.  The 100th ship transported products to China, which received 80% of the company's total exports in the last two years. Since 2016, when operations at the Port began, the company has already shipped 1.9 million tons of pulp. With this, Paranaguá became the country’s fifth biggest port to ship this product.

The Logistics Unit

Inaugurated in 2016, the Paranaguá Pulp and Paper Logistics Unit is exclusively dedicated to shipping hardwood pulp to export markets. It has the capacity to handle 900,000 tons of the raw material per year. Spread over 24,000 sq.m. of built-up area, the operation also has a 23.5-km railway line connecting the Puma Unit (in the city of Ortigueira, Paraná, where the pulp is produced) to the Central do Paraná Railway station, and operates 7 locomotives and 306 wagons owned by Klabin.

Klabin sends South American tapirs to repopulate areas where the species was extinct

Klabin sends South American tapirs to repopulate areas where the species was extinct

July 20, 2018 – Born in the Samuel Klabin Ecological Park, located in Telêmaco Borba, Petrúquio, Flora and Ronaldo are three tapirs who now live in the wild.Thanks to a joint effort with the Refauna Project, after a period of adaptation, the animals started living in a reserve in the city of Cachoeiras de Macacu in the state of Rio de Janeiro.In their new home, they are known as Valente, Flora and Júpter – the males were rechristened by the local community – and joined another couple, Eva and Floquinho, who were reintroduced into the wild in December 2017.The five tapirs are the first in their species to inhabit the region after at least a century of extinction.

The three tapirs travelled over one thousand kilometers to reach their new home.According to the vet at the Ecological Park, Dr. Pedro Chaves Camargo, the animals were born in Klabin’s scientific incubator in 2000, 2006 and 2008, respectively, and belong to the second generation of the tapir reproduction project launched by the Park in the late 1990s.

According to him, tapirs are large animals, weigh between 200 and 300 kg and are essential for the preservation of biodiversity.“It is one of the endangered species in Brazil.They are herbivores and are known as gardeners of the nature because, by eating fruits from trees and bushes, they spread the seed along the way, thereby making an important contribution to biodiversity,” highlights Dr. Camargo.

According to Maron Galliez, coordinator of the Refauna Project and professor at the Federal Institute of Rio de Janeiro, the animals will be monitored through telemetry collars and camera traps.The tapirs were reintroduced through a soft release technique, that is, they went through a period of adaptation, encircled by a fence inside the forest, with food supplementation.  After 30 days, the fence was opened and the tapirs were set off, but the food supplementation continues,” said Maron.

Klabin’s Sustainability and Environment manager, Júlio César Batista Nogueira, affirms that contributing to the repopulation of this species is an action of tremendous value for the company.“Investing in the preservation of biodiversity is part of our contribution to a renewable future and strengthens our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” he adds.

The three animals were in the adaptation process since June and were released into the wild recently.The purpose of the project is to relocate the animals raised in captivity into the wildlife.For this, we seek partnerships with conservationist and zoological incubators and, in this scenario, Klabin stands out for its structure and quality in animal treatment,” adds Maron.

 

About the Ecological Park.

Created in the 1980s, the Samuel Klabin Ecological Park is located in the Monte Alegre Farm in Telêmaco Borba. It is spread on an area of approximately 11,000 hectares, of which 71% is covered by natural forests. Its activities include biodiversity conservation, wildlife rehabilitation, preservation of endangered species, scientific research and support to environmental education projects. Since 1989, it has dedicated itself to scientific breeding, combining conservation and the study of the behavior of endangered wildlife species, promoting their reproduction and reintroduction into the environment, all in accordance with environmental regulations.About 200 animals of 50 different species, including the puma, the pigmy brocket deer and the South American tapir, live in the park.

The park was restructured in recent previous years and is closed for visitors in order to facilitate the readaptation of animals to the new facilities.In addition to the scientific incubator, the park also has the nature interpretation center and ecological trails for environmental education actions and for direct contact with local biodiversity.

Klabin reports results of Solid Waste Project

At a meeting, representatives of cities participating in the project learned about all the initiatives already implemented and the next steps

At a meeting held on June 8 at the Puma Unit in Ortigueira, Paraná, Klabin and Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium presented all the initiatives implemented and the targets set for the Solid Waste Project to mayors and environment secretaries of the seven cities participating in the project.

At the meeting, the sustainability and environment manager of Klabin presented all the indicators of the project, such as training, equipment donated, Company’s investments and selective garbage collection actions in each city. The institutional video of the project was also played.   “Our purpose is to show that all the cities performed well and to outline the next steps of this important project," said Júlio César Batista Nogueira, Sustainability and Environment Manager at Klabin.

“This close relationship gives transparency to our initiatives with the communities and we can thus engage the cities in the sustainable development of the region,” pointed out Uilson Paiva, Community Relations Manager at Klabin. According to Ricardo Hornung, CEO of the Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium, the results of the Solid Waste Project can already be perceived by the population of the seven cities. “The main purpose is to increase the volume recycled by imparting environmental education and by reducing the waste sent to landfills, thereby improving the separation process for cooperatives and, consequently, improving the quality of life of their members,” he concluded.             

Mayors and environment secretaries of cities in the region participated in the Solid Waste Project meeting at the Puma Unit.

 

About the project

The goal of Klabin’s partnership with the Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium, formed by the cities of Imbaú, Ortigueira, Reserva, Tamarana, Tibagi and Telêmaco Borba, is to assist in the management of solid waste. The initiative is part of the Social and Environmental Action Plan drawn up by Klabin while setting up the Puma Unit in Ortigueira. Between 2014 and 2016, the company conducted a study and diagnosis of the chain of solid waste of each city, after which action plans were drawn up.

For the project, Klabin provided the cities with structures or equipment such as sheds, selective garbage collection trucks and materials to structure the recycling process in each place, besides training the collectors and forming associations or cooperatives to organize the work. Each city received inputs according to the needs presented in the action plan.

Another focus area of the project is environmental education at municipal schools, which trains teachers and pedagogical coordinators to work on and disseminate the concepts of selective collection and recycling among students during the year.

Klabin also implemented the project and is leading the environmental licensing process to build the a Consortium Landfill. Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium will build and manage the landfill, which is expected to become operational in 2019, comprising the disposal of waste produced by the cities participating in the project.

Klabin addresses the issue of Solid Waste in Environment Month campaign

The purpose of the campaign is to demonstrate the company’s concern not only with the disposal of waste produced by industrial processes

In the month in which World Environment Day is celebrated (June 5), Klabin launched the “Your Waste Has a Future” campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to demonstrate the company’s concern not only with the disposal of waste produced by industrial processes, but also with the sustainable development of the communities where it is present. Klabin supports the UN commitment to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and has joined hands with other organizations to put into practice a global action plan for the benefit of people, the planet, as well as peace and prosperity.

Key points on these two issues are included in Klabin’s Sustainability Policy. Item 6 addresses the prevention of pollution by reducing the environmental impacts of its production processes, while item 11 addresses the practice of social responsibility with the focus on communities where Klabin operates.

As a result, Klabin this month reports that 92% of industrial waste from the Monte Alegre and Puma units are recycled and converted into agricultural inputs and construction materials. Also worth mention is the Solid Waste Project, Klabin’s initiative in partnership with the Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium, for the management of solid waste generated in seven cities in the Campos Gerais region of Paraná.

Klabin holds Forum to discuss Sustainable Development Goals

The event, which is open to the public, will be held at the MASP auditorium during the week in which World Environment Day is celebrated

São Paulo, June 4, 2018 – To emphasize the importance of sustainabilityin people’s lives, on June 6th  Klabin will hold the forum “Sustainable Development Goals in the Daily Routine” at the auditorium of MASP (São Paulo Museum of Art Assis Chateaubriand). The forum will feature a debate on the application of the goals in the daily routines and the launch of the book “101 Dias com Ações mais Sustentáveis para Mudar o Mundo”, written by Prof. Marcus Nakagawa.

The debate on “How do we incorporate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in the daily routines of companies and people” will be mediated by Prof. Ismael Rocha, PhD, director of Advanced Studies at ESPM. Other participants are Fabiano Rangel, chairman of the Brazilian Association of Sustainability Professionals (Abraps), Carlo Pereira, executive secretary of the UN Global Compact Network Brazil, and Judi Cavalcante, founding partner of Avesso Sustentabilidade. Within the perspective of corporate sustainability, issues such as climate change, renewable energy and private social investment are among the fields in which these professionals have vast experience.

It will be followed by the launch of the book “101 Dias com Ações mais Sustentáveis para Mudar o Mundo”, written by Marcus Nakagawa, professor of undergraduate and MBA programs at ESPM. To make the project a reality, the author resorted to financial support from several people and companies through a crowdfunding campaign. Klabin was one of the backers and signs the foreword of the book, which will be available in bookstores nationwide and also online.

Klabin supports the UN commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and joins hands with other organizations to put into practice a global action plan for the benefit of people, the planet, as well as peace and prosperity. The company has been working on new goals and targets that incorporate issues that are important for its business and the items on the UN’s global agenda to its governance strategy and sustainability policy.

 

Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the United Nations (UN) to promote common prosperity and well-being of all by 2030. The SDGs give priority to issues such as education, health, social protection and climate changes, among others. Among the objectives listed are: eradication of poverty, zero hunger and sustainable agriculture, quality education, gender equality, safe drinking water and sanitation and reduction of inequality in all nations.

 

About the book “101 Dias com Ações mais Sustentáveis para Mudar o Mundo”

The book is intended for anyone interested in starting a sustainable movement, whether at home, at the company or at school. It is divided by actions, with each chapter offering one that can be implemented in the daily routine. This way, the reader realizes that practicing sustainable actions is easy; one just needs to change the habits and with some changes or adjustments it is possible to improve the planet.  

Each of the 101 actions described in the book is accompanied by tips from websites, books and movies, as well as other information. The goal is to achieve, collaboratively, 365 days of actions; in other words, one to be put into practice each day.

According to the author, the idea for the book came from questions that people always asked him about how to put sustainability into practice. “I started listing several actions that can be put into practice by anyone, and when I realized that I had already listed 101 activities. From simple actions, such as turning off the lights when leaving a room, and proper disposal of waste to solar energy and composting, for example,” explained Marcus Nakagawa.

Klabin participates in VTEX Day

It supplied corrugated board furniture, which complemented the ambience of the event, as well as trash cans and paper cups

São Paulo, May 18, 2018 – Using creativity and sustainability, Klabin participated in VTEX Day, the biggeste-commerce and multi-channel retail event in Latin America, held in São Paulo this week. The company supplied a part of the event furniture, consisting of pieces made from corrugated board, which attracted the public’s attention and were one of the attractions. Some spaces, such as the lounge, were furnished with couches, two- and three-seat armchairs and large coffee tables. In the working areas, tables and two types of chairs, also made of corrugated board, were placed.

Klabin also supplied trash cans made of corrugated board and six thousand paper cups, which were distributed in all water and food consumption points. Through the initiative, the Company sought to demonstrate the diverse possibilities for adopting efficient, creative and, at the same time, environmentally responsible solutions, which help to reduce the use of materials made from nonrenewable resources that affect the environment.

All paper items provided by Klabin were produced from renewable natural resources, with raw material coming from planted and certified forests. This format of partnership and contribution from Klabin is driven by its vision of sustainability, which is guided by sustainable development, among other factors. In this context, paper is the key player, given its high rate of recyclability.

VTEX Day 2018 was organized by VTEX, a Brazilian company that is the world leader in digital commerce. Held on May 14 and 15, the event gathered more than 14,000 visitors and 150 speakers.
