Klabin campaign to celebrate Arbor Day brings content on Brazilian species

 With a hotsite and a sticker album, the company introduces 25 Brazilian trees and shows the best species to plant at home according to individual profile

São Paulo, September 21, 2016 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter and the leading manufacturer of corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, is organizing a special action to celebrate Arbor Day, on September 21. A sticker album containing images, information and interesting facts about 25 Brazilian species, 16 of which represent the trees mostly found in the cities where the company has its industrial units, is being distributed to its more than 16,000 employees. To complete the campaign, Klabin has launched a hotsite (klabin.com.br/arvoresdobrasil), containing the full contents of the album, a quiz and tips to know more about certain species and discover the most adequate to plant and grow at home.

 

The hotsite features diverse species of trees, including fruit-bearing trees, represented in states or cities from the North to the South of Brazil and abroad, together with their scientific and common names. In Lages, Santa Catarina, for example, one can find the Brazilian walnut (canela-imbuia), whose seed is a walnut and which is one of the longest living species in the forest, with some outliving 500 years. The famous Brazilian pine species (araucárias) of Paraná, found in the cities of Telêmaco Borba and Ortigueira, can grow up to 50 meters and produce the pinhão seed, which is rich in energy reserves and amino acids, much consumed in the typical cuisine of the state. The yellow trumpet bush (ipê-amarelo) that decorates the streets of São Leopoldo in Rio Grande do Sul, the jacarandá-paulista found in Junidiaí and the barbatimão found in Angatuba, both in the state of São Paulo, are among the many other beautiful species.

 

Committed to sustainable development, Klabin dedicates intense efforts to preserve the biodiversity of its forests, which include the identification of flora and fauna species. One such example is the Natural Heritage Private Reserves (RPPN) maintained by the company in Paraná and Santa Catarina exclusively for scientific research, as well as to protect the environment and water resources, and which play an important role in maintaining biodiversity in the Atlantic Forest. The company is also a global benchmark in mosaic forest management, a system that intermingles planted forests and preserved native woodlands. Klabin preserves 210,000 hectares of native forests, which represent more than 40% of its total forest area, and has 235,000 hectares of forests planted with pine and eucalyptus trees.

 Klabin launches “Local Development Forums” at Ethos 360º Conference

Hosted in cities across the state of Santa Catarina, the forums aim to foster initiatives that lead to social and environmental development and better quality of life in these regions

São Paulo, September 20, 2016.Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter and the leading manufacturer of packaging, corrugated board and industrial bags, is participating in the Ethos 360° Conference, organized by the EthosInstitute to foster dialogue and commitment to transform Brazil through issues that are relevant to businesses and sustainability. The event will be held on September 20 and 21 at Transamérica Expo Center in São Paulo.

Klabin will participate in the panel discussion on “Investments by companies in promoting local sustainable development: specific aspects, opportunities and challenges,” which will begin at 9 a.m. on the 21st. At the panel discussion, Josué da Silva Vargas, Industrial Manager of Klabin’s Otacílio Costa and Correia Pinto Units, will speak on the establishment of Local Development Forums in Otacílio Costa and Correia Pinto, the cities where the company operates in Santa Catarina. Set up in November 2015, the forums aim to foster initiatives that lead to local social and environmental development and better quality of life for the population. Klabin was responsible for coordinating and creating these community forums in both cities. With a solid foundation and the engagement of local players, the initiative created spaces for dialogue with the active participation of community leaders, civil society representatives, the government, companies in the region and Klabin.

The company decided to give voice to the initiative in order to empower the groups on issues faced by them and to encourage more active participation of the citizens from both cities. The forums mapped local challenges and listed priority and achievable initiatives for this year. With five meetings held since the beginning of 2016, and more than 80 participants per city on average, the groups already have structured plans, objectives, targets, partners and timelines to carry out the actions on topics such as income generation, culture and sports, environmental education, professional qualification, infrastructure and citizenship. Among the initiatives already rolled out are the organization of a bike ride in May this year with the active participation of the people of Otacílio Costa; an environmental education program that included lectures, videos and educational games to guide students from municipal public schools in the city; and a roundtable this month to discuss the ideas of candidates for mayor of Correia Pinto and Otacílio Costa.

Otacílio Costa and Correia Pinto are young cities, both only 33 years old. Otacílio Costa has a population of over 16,000, with healthy development indicators, although below the state average. Correia Pinto has a population of 14,785 and its main source of wealth is wood, with an extensive reforestation area planted with pine. The city has good development indicators, although its Human Development Index (HDI) is lower than that of Otacílio Costa and the state average.

The Ethos 360° Conference is one of the largest sustainability events in Latin America, with the dissemination of highly relevant content and dialogues, which gathers every year presidents, executives, entrepreneurs and experts from different sectors of the economy to discuss and reflect on the outlook and expansion of commitments that corroborate with the agenda of sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals.

For this edition of the Ethos Conference, 1,600 participants and more than 160 leaders and experts are expected, who will be treated to a dynamic schedule consisting of 69 activities on five stages. For more information and registration, visit http://www.conferenciaethos.org/.

Dr. João Antônio Zequi, another UEL professor, presented researches conducted in the university that showed encouraging results in controlling the proliferation of this mosquito. The event was held at the Municipal Education Department amphitheater, in which around 150 people participated.


In existence for 15 years, the Caiubi Program is organized by Klabin in partnership with the municipal governments of Telêmaco Borba, Imbaú and Ortigueira. The purpose of this environmental education initiative is to annually provide teachers with content to disseminate the concepts of ecological awareness in the Municipal Children’s Education Centers (CMEI) and municipal schools.

Another special initiative in Paraná was a presentation, in the form of an irreverent stand-up comedy, by the pair of comedians Juca Bala and Jauri, who talked about the daily routine of drivers, the correct use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and the proper use of Px radio, a communication channel available in vehicles.At the end of the presentation, gifts were raffled and kits comprising t-shirts, mugs, car trash bags and key rings were handed to drivers of the company’s logistics fleet who were present at the Casa da Cultura in Telêmaco Borba.The Commission of Safety of Outsourced Companies (COMSECON) of the Monte Alegre Unit also participated, conducting preventive exams and haircuts at the Cotrasa gas station in partnership with the Occupational Health department and Industrial Social Services (SESI).In the region, apart from the educational initiatives and events, Klabin’s homage to drivers was carried on billboards, newspapers and radio stations.

Klabin Conducts Maintenance Shutdown at Correia Pinto Unit

 To ensure the plant continues to operate properly, the company will conduct a maintenance shutdown from August 1 to 26

 

Correia Pinto, July 20, 2016 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter and the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, will conduct the Annual Maintenance Shutdown of the Correia Pinto Unit, in Santa Catarina, from August 1 to 26. The shutdown involves interrupting paper production to perform the maintenance required to ensure that all equipment continues to operate properly, the safety of the facility and the quality of the production process.

During the period, 60 outsourced companies and some 1,400 outsourced workers will be involved in the activities. Some of the main activities include inspections of boilers, digesters, power generation and distribution systems and production process control systems. The number of temporary workers requires additional logistics and infrastructure, such as transportation, accommodation, meals and other items that help boost demand and the local economy of Correia Pinto and the surrounding region. Other benefits generated by the shutdown include the generation of taxes for the city and increased traffic at hotels, bars, restaurants and stores, as well as support services for accommodating workers in the city.

During the operation, the local community may notice different smells and noises coming from the plant, especially on the first two days, which mark the start of maintenance activities, and on days 25 and 26, when operations are resumed. However, please note that these changes do not pose any threat to public health or to the environment.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Klabin at the 24/7 toll-free number 0800 721 0228.

Klabin and Childhood Brasil promote Puma Seminar for Childhood

 

Paraná, July 14, 2016 – Klabin, in partnership with Childhood Brasil, will end the Puma Project for Childhood in the cities of Telêmaco Borba, Ortigueira and Imbaú, in Paraná, with the PUMA Seminar for Childhood, to be held tomorrow (15), in the auditorium of Colégio Positivo, in Telêmaco Borba.

A result of the partnership between Klabin and Childhood Brasil, the Project concluded the 40-hour training program attended by around 180 professionals from children and adolescent protection institutions in the three cities, all within the area of influence of the Puma Project. The group, which is part of the network of protection against sexual violence, was formed by professionals from several areas, such as healthcare, welfare, education, civil society organizations, child protection services, Public Prosecution and public safety, in addition to teachers and members of the Military Police force, who received special training.

After five training modules held in each city, aiming to enable reflection and improve the service rendered to children and adolescents that were victims of sexual violence, the Seminar will conclude the project by gathering participants in lectures and debates that will deepen the knowledge and training on themes such as childhood, family, sexuality, network action, violence against children and adolescents and others.

Professor Dr. Paulo Endo, from the Psychology Institute of USP and winner of the Jabuti Literature Award, will begin with a lecture on violence called “A força bruta, o corpo e a linguagem,” which invites participants to dive into the subject of violence and the possibilities to fight against it, seeking to expand common conceptions of the community in general.

In the afternoon, Thais Gava, psychologist and holder of a masters’ degree in collective health, will bring the perspective of sexual rights, as a proposal to prevent sexual violence against children and adolescents. Together with public health physician and Master in public health Raquel Marques, director of the Artemis organization, Gava will propose a discussion on deconstructing violence based on the reflection about gender issues.

The seminar will conclude with a presentation of Action Plans for each city, which were developed for the execution of activities among the networks of protection of children and adolescents. A result of intense debate and exchange throughout the training sessions, the presentation of plans by local representatives is the materialization of the group’s work, which undertakes the commitment of advancing the actions and invites the entire community to contribute to a childhood free from sexual abuse and exploitation.
