São Paulo, May 31, 2016 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter and the leading producer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, presents its Sustainability Report, which brings information about the company's performance in 2015. The report, in its 17th edition, is structured into four chapters: Excellence, Sustainability, Innovation, and Vision for the Future. These topics correspond to the attributes that have been guiding the organization over its 117-year history and cover the nine most important themes for sustainability management at Klabin:

The report highlights the fact that 2015 was a crucial year for Klabin when it took an important step in its growth cycle: the new plant - the Puma Unit in Ortigueira, Paraná - with production capacity of 1.5 million tons of pulp. The plant went operational in March 2016, on schedule and on budget.

The report also highlights the 15% growth in exports, which accounted for 34% of total sales in the year, up 3 percentage points from 2014. Operating cash generation (adjusted EBITDA) reached R$1,975 million in 2015, the best result in the company's history, up 15% from 2014.

Among the honors that attest to the company's more intensive efforts in 2015 towards sustainability are its election by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Latin America as the company with the best practice in Natural Capital Management; being featured in the "Water Management" category of the Exame Sustainability Guide; being included once again, driven by a solid and evident performance, in the Environmental Paper Company Index (EPCI) Report, a biennial initiative of the WWF; and being included in the Corporate Sustainability Index (ISE) of the São Paulo Stock Exchange (BM&FBovespa), for the third time in a row.

The Klabin report adopts the "G4 Core" guidelines of Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the organization internationally recognized as the benchmark of excellence in creating methodologies and indicators to describe the social, environmental and economic management of companies. The complete report (Portuguese, English and Spanish) is available online, a condensed version (Portuguese and English) is available for download and an audio description version for the visually impaired will be available in July this year. The contents of the report were submitted for independent assurance by BSD Consulting.

Klabin announces General Shutdown at Otacílio Costa Unit

To ensure the plant’s proper functioning, the company will conduct maintenance between June 6 and 16

Otacílio Costa, May 24, 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, announces the Annual Maintenance Shutdown of the Otacílio Costa Unit in Santa Catarina, from June 6 to 16. The shutdown involves interrupting paper production to perform the maintenance required to ensure the equipment’s proper functioning and safety as well as the quality of the production process.

During the period, 55 third-party service providers and around 1,500 outsourced workers will be involved in the maintenance work. Among the main activities to be conducted are 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 drive demand and the local economy of Otacílio Costa and the surrounding region. Other benefits generated by the maintenance work include generation of taxes for the city and increased business at hotels, bars, restaurants and stores, as well as support services for accommodating workers in the city.

During the operation, new odors and noises coming from the plant, especially on the 6th and 7th, which mark the start of maintenance activities, and on the 15th and 16th, when operations are resumed, can be perceived by the community. However, it is important to emphasize that these changes do not pose any threat to public health or the environment.

In case of doubts, the community may contact Klabin at the 24-hour toll-free number 0800 721 0228.

Klabin and Childhood conduct training for representatives of child and adolescent protection bodies

Initiative whose mission is to prevent and combat sexual violence against children and adolescents in the cities of Paraná located within the area of direct influence of the Puma Project: Imbaú, Ortigueira and Telêmaco Borba

Klabin and Childhood conduct training for representatives of child and adolescent protection bodies


Paraná, May 17, 2016 -
 Klabin, in partnership with Childhood Brasil, has concluded the first stage of training on the Children’s Rights Guarantee System of the Puma Project, an initiative whose mission is to prevent and combat sexual violence against children and adolescents in the cities of Paraná located within the area of direct influence of the Puma Project: Imbaú, Ortigueira and Telêmaco Borba.


The purpose of the training is to help improve the services provided by different areas - health, social welfare, education, civil society organizations, child protective services, the judiciary, the public prosecutor’s office and public safety - to children and adolescents who are victims of sexual violence, and to help in preventing the problem. The program, which has a duration of 40 hours, was conceived by professionals specializing on the issue of violence against children and adolescents and covered topics such as childhood and adolescence, family, sexuality, network action, violence against children and adolescents, and others.


The Puma Project for Childhood is part of a plan drawn up by Klabin when the Puma Unit, the Company's new pulp plant in Ortigueira, Paraná, was under construction, together with a Social and Environmental Action Plan that identified opportunities and points of attention regarding the company's social investments. The multistage Project aims to reach out to as many people as possible, bringing information and raising awareness about protecting children. The initiative hopes to bring together a large number of protection agents and improve the services offered in situations of sexual violence against children and adolescents in these cities.


The first two stages of the Program were completed in 2015. In the first stage, Klabin and Puma Project employees received guidelines on the cause and their work as child and adolescent protection agents. In the second phase, the Child and Adolescent Rights Guarantee System (SGDCA) of the three cities was analyzed to learn about the services offered to children and adolescents, their potential and their needs.


"Fighting sexual violence against children and adolescents, whether it is abuse or exploitation, is the duty of everyone and goes beyond social responsibility. This is a human rights issue that must be addressed by companies, governments and society. For us at Childhood Brasil, the growing engagement of the private sector in respect of these rights shows the growing understanding among companies that no business can evolve without also protecting children and adolescents," pointed out Rodrigo Santini, CEO of Childhood Brasil.

Klabin and Apremavi commemorate tenth anniversary of Matas Legais program

The project has restored around 350 hectares of riparian forests in Paraná and Santa Catarina

Klabin and Apremavi commemorate tenth anniversary of Matas Legais program

 The project has restored around 350 hectares of riparian forests in Paraná and Santa Catarina

 

Paraná, May 13, 2016 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporterand the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, commemorated on Wednesday (11), in partnership with the Association for Preservation of the Environment and Life (Apremavi), the tenth anniversary of Matas Legais, a program that offers orientation, raises awareness and supports owners of small and midsized rural properties in the states of Paraná and Santa Catarina on the sustainable use of their land and environmental conservation.

 

The event was commemorated at the Harmonia Club in Telêmaco Borba, Paraná and was attended by the rural producers participating in the Matas Legais program, representatives from Apremavi, the Klabin team and partners from the program’s various regions. At the encounter, ten producers and the founders of Matas Legais were honored for the good results obtained to date and for believing in the initiative from the very start. The participants watched a presentation by Klabin’s forest development and wood sales manager, Carlos Alberto Bernardi, on the company’s Forest Development Project and its achievements, such as the FSC® certification of small and midsized producers and the adaptations of rural properties located in Klabin’s operating region. The company’s community relations manager, Uilson Paiva, presented the program Planning Sustainable Properties, and Apremavi, represented by Miriam Prochnow, its board member and public policies coordinator, highlighted the advances achieved by the Matas Legais program during its first decade.

 

Over these ten years, the project has delivered more than one million seedlings to producers in Paraná and Santa Catarina who participate in the company’s development program and sponsored social and educational projects in the cities where Klabin has forestry operations. The Matas Legais program restored approximately 350 hectares of riparian forests and helped to recover and conserve Permanent Preservation Areas (APP) by demarcating 6,000 hectares of legal reserves and 1,200 hectares of legal reserves in regeneration in Paraná. It also supported the practice of organic farming and fostered environmental conservation and awareness, which helped the farmers diversify their rural activities, bolster their household income and preserve natural resources.

 

According to Apremavi, in Paraná, environmental adaptations will continue to enable rural producers to obtain certifications and in turn add value to the wood they produce. In the Serrana and Alto Vale do Itajaí regions of the state, the initiative will be essential for helping municipalities plan their landscape, with the drafting of Municipal Plans for Restoring and Conserving the Atlantic Forest.  

 

Matas Legais collaborates with Klabin’s Forest Development Program, which since 2014 has supported forestry producers in the Médio Rio Tibagi region to obtain the international FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) seal, which attests that the property’s forest management conserves natural resources and offers fair labor conditions. The program currently has 193 property owners and more than 300 rural properties engaged in the certification process.

Correia Pinto, May 5, 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, held on May 4 and 5 the 26th edition of the CaiubiProgram, which focused this year on schools of the city of Lages, Santa Catarina, benefiting around 50 teachers of local and state public schools. Held at Klabin’s Environmental Education Center, inaugurated last year in Correia Pinto, Santa Catarina, this edition included lectures and environmental awareness-raising activities, as well instructions on animals, plants, sustainability and forest stewardship.


Teachers were given the opportunity to learn about the Legal Forest Program, promoted by Klabin in partnership with the Association for Preservation of the Environment and Life (Apremavi) to provide guidance for small and medium-sized rural producers on efficient use of land. The agenda of the event also enabled teachers to participate in games, prepared in coordination with the Environmental Police, aiming to provide information on the regional fauna shared by experts that monitor animals within the company’s forest areas. Participants also visited Klabin’s Araucária Trail, in Correia Pinto, and the botanic and entomology labs of the University of the State of Santa Catarina (Udesc).

The Program, which started in Santa Catarina in 2007, has brought Klabin closer to the communities living in the 40 cities of the state where the company maintains forest and industrial operations. The goal of the project is to raise awareness of educators to environmental issues, so they may pass on the knowledge to their students and the communities where they act, by developing environment-related work that can also add to the school’s curriculum. This helps share the company’s experiences with sustainable development with the population, who responds positively at the end of each program and passes on the knowledge.

In addition to giving out teaching materials and booklets, Klabin’s forest and industrial areas promote lectures on the company’s social and environmental initiatives for sustainable development. The activities of the 26th edition of the Caiubi project were conducted by Klabin in partnership with the University of the State of Santa Catarina (Udesc), the Environmental Police, Apremavi, expert researchers and also supported by the Municipality of Lages.

 

The Caiubi Program

Klabin started the Caiubi Program in the state of Paraná in 2001. In Santa Catarina, the Project is conducted in partnership with Education Departments of local administrations. Since its creation, the project has engaged more than a thousand teachers of 377 schools and around 122,000 students.

10 years of Klabin’s Beekeeping Program

In the beekeeping program, Klabin allows producers to use its forest areas to install and handle apiaries, while for meliponiculture it invests in research and breeding of native bees

10 years of Klabin’s Beekeeping Program

Telêmaco Borba, April 19, 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, is celebrating 10 years of its Beekeeping and Meliponiculture Program, implemented at the Monte Alegre Unit, in Telêmaco Borba, Paraná. 

In partnership with Associations of Beekeepers, the Program aims to take advantage of the potential of forests and promote non-wood products, thus fostering development in production chains that benefit local communities and the environment. In the beekeeping program, Klabin allows producers to use its forest areas to install and handle apiaries, while for meliponiculture it invests in research and breeding of native bees, which are responsible for pollinizing 40-90% of vegetable species, thus also helping to preserve and sustainably use the ecosystem.

Both activities provide a fast increase in the household income of small and medium local producers, improve crop productivity and perfectly integrate with the company’s forestry operations. The project, which currently involves 42 beekeepers working in 63 apiaries installed in the company’s forests in Paraná, has already produced around 50 tons of honey.
