Klabin’s family farming project in Paraná receives SESI’s recognition seal

Klabin’s project helps small farmers from the cities of Ortigueira, Imbaú and Telêmaco Borba in all stages of production

Paraná, October 17, 2017 – The program “Social Forests – Planning Sustainable Properties” to support family farming, promoted by Klabin in Paraná, received the SESI Seal for the Sustainable Development Goals in Curitiba. The award recognizes institutions that adopt practices to promote the SDG, a global initiative by the United Nations (UN) to support the planet’s sustainable development in three spheres: economic, social and environmental.

Klabin’s project helps small farmers from the cities of Ortigueira, Imbaú and Telêmaco Borba in all stages of production, from obtaining the Rural Environmental Registration (CAR) to diversifying property, encouraging the culture of association/cooperatives and ultimately seeking to sell products in local markets.

In a little over two years of operation, 230 properties have participated and over 50 training actions have taken place involving agricultural management, livestock, organic production, environmental education and others. One of the program’s most recent results was the commercialization carried out by the COCATIMEL Cooperative, from Imbaú, and the Association of Lageado Bonito Residents, in Ortigueira, with Sodexo, a meal supplier to Klabin’s two plants and Forestry area.

"The program has connected knowledgeable, hard-working farmers to the local consumer market, which has a high demand for produce but, unfortunately, still brings these goods from more distant regions,” noted Uilson Paiva, Klabin’s Community Relations manager. Social Forests is carried out in partnership with Sebrae, the Association for Environmental and Life Preservation (Apremavi), and The Nature Conservancy (TNC).

Maintenance Shutdown at Correia Pinto Unit on October 16

1,100 workers hired to carry out maintenance activities

Santa Catarina, October 11, 2017 – On October 16, Klabin will shut down the Correia Pinto Unit in Santa Catarina for general maintenance, which will last until October 26. The shutdown involves the suspension of operations at the plant for inspection and maintenance of all the equipment in order to ensure operational safety and quality of the production process.

To carry out the maintenance activities, about 1,100 workers were hired, which will bring economic benefits to the city of Correia Pinto since the movement of people in the region will increase considerably. During the period, there will be an increase in property rentals and hotel occupancy, and busier commercial activity in general.

While the Maintenance Shutdown procedures are being carried out at the unit, variations in odor and noise from the plant may be noticed. However, Klabin emphasizes that these possible changes do not cause any damage to health or the environment.

The international market through its first issue of green bonds amounting to around R$ 1.6 billion, maturing in 10 years

São Paulo, October 09, 2017 – Sustainability is in Klabin's DNA, and to sustain its investments in these practices, the company recently (September 2017) raised funds in the international market through its first issue of green bonds amounting to around R$ 1.6 billion, maturing in 10 years. The company, which pioneered the adoption of sustainable practices, is a benchmark in sustainable development and its issue received the "High Standard" rating from consulting firm Sustainalytics. The offering drew significant investor interest, with demand exceeding the offer of green bonds sevenfold.

Moreover, since 2014, it has been included in the portfolios of the Corporate Sustainability Index (ISE) and Carbon Efficient Index (ICO2) of the São Paulo Stock Exchange (BM&FBovespa).
