Klabin sponsors Field Day in Paraná

Entrepreneurs and rural producers came together to learn about innovations in forestry and the outlook for wood market in Campos Gerais region

Paraná, September 3, 2015 – Klabin, Brazil’s largest producer and exporter of packaging paper, was one of the sponsors of Field Day, an event organized by Agência da Madeira and the City Council of Reserva, Paraná, with support from Emprapa Florestas. Hosted at Tangará Farm on Tuesday (August 25), the event brought together approximately 150 people involved in the wood production chain, including entrepreneurs and rural producers, to learn about innovations in forestry and the outlook for the regional market.

The event was inaugurated by the Mayor of Reserva, Luiz Carlos Vosniak, and director of Agência da Madeira, Chico Moreira. Klabin used the opportunity to explain its support for the development of rural producers and the outlook for wood consumption in the region after the operational startup of its new pulp mill, currently under construction in Ortigueira. The importance of forestry certification and the agrosilvopastoral system, which combines cattle raising, agriculture and forests, were other topics presented by the Klabin at the event.

In the field, professionals from the Tangará Farm explained the agrosilvopastoral system implemented in the area, which is home to sheep, planted forests and wheat. The Farm, which covers over 200 hectares, is one of the units supported by Klabin and is a member of the Group of Forest Producers from the Médio Rio Tibagi Region (GPMT) that received FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certification at the end of last year. The certification recognizes responsible forest stewardship and enables the sale of high value-added wood, which brings benefits to the entire production chain. The companies TMO and Palfinger held demonstrations of their equipment used in harvesting and loading wood.

Puma Project fosters regional development

Defined together with the community, the Social and Environmental Action Plan prioritizes initiatives in Ortigueira, Telêmaco Borba and Imbaú

Puma Project fosters regional development

Defined together with the community, the Social and Environmental Action Plan prioritizes initiatives in Ortigueira, Telêmaco Borba and Imbaú

In 2012, Klabin started a wide social diagnosis of the area directly impacted by its new pulp plant, in the cities of Ortigueira (where the plant is installed), Imbaú and Telêmaco Borba, all in the state of Paraná. Supported by expert consultancy by Funbio, the Social and Environmental Action Plan consists in a wide participative process, involving multiple stakeholders from urban and rural areas of the three cities, and aims to define the company’s actions in connection with Puma Project.

The starting point was to gather data on the region’s socioeconomic indicators from official sources. Meanwhile, the Company interviewed 211 members of the communities and held meetings in the three cities to validate and complement the diagnosis, which was then made available online. These initiatives were joined by representatives of the state and local administrations, local representatives, community leaders, NGOs, educational and religious institutions, companies, unions, trade associations and others.

Further rounds of meetings with the communities of the cities of Ortigueira, Imbaú and Telêmaco Borba defined the priorities for investment allocation. In order to identify areas already contemplated by the budgets of each municipality and avoid unwanted overlapping, Klabin met with the local administrations, and with regional Health and Education departments, to present and validate the suggested projects.

At the same time, it signed partnerships with the municipalities, which defined the necessary complements for each project, such as future maintenance of the facilities, appointment of employees and others.

The future projects, listed below, include the fields of health, education, culture, leisure, environment, family agriculture, entrepreneurship, welfare, urban infrastructure and services.   

 “In light of the inclusive process of allocation, Klabin is certain that the projects that were chosen meet the real needs of communities,” said Uilson Paiva, Sustainability and Communication manager at Project Puma.

“The social investments in Project Puma reinforce the commitment to our Sustainability Policy, which calls for practicing social responsibility in the communities where we operate,” said Francisco Razzolini, general manager of Puma Project.

Technicians from the entity inspected the Klabin factory to evaluate five items: operational methods and personnel practices; maintenance for food safety; cleaning practices; integrated pest management; programs to adapt to requirements and food safety. These consolidated standards are recognized by food companies as protection measures and are demanded by clients in the food segment, particularly in the foreign market.

Klabin holds 25th edition of Caiubi Program and inaugurates Environmental Education Center in Correia Pinto

Project aims to raise environmental awareness by providing training to teachers in the region.

Correia Pinto, June 29, 2015 – Klabin, Brazil’s largest paper producer and exporter, held the 25th edition of the Caiubi Program. The Program, held in partnership with the State University of Santa Catarina (UDESC), the Environmental Police, the Association for Preservation of the Environment and Life (Apremavi) and the State Prosecutor's Office, and supported by the City Council of Lages, was held in Correia Pinto, Santa Catarina, on June 25 and 26 and benefited nearly 50 teachers.

This edition saw the inauguration of the Environmental Education Center at the Klabin Unit in Correia Pinto, which hosted lectures and practical activities on environmental awareness, in addition to providing guidelines on flora, fauna, sustainability and forest stewardship. The teachers were given the opportunity to learn about the Legal Forest Program, held by Klabin in partnership with Apremavi to provide guidance for small- and medium-sized rural land owners on more efficient use of land. The Environmental Police gave a lecture and conducted educational activities on environmental education.

The event also included a lecture by the Environmental Prosecutor of Lages, Renee Cardoso Braga, and the lecture “More than animals" by Professor Vilmar Picinatto Filho from the State University of Santa Catarina on the region’s fauna and its importance for the healthy development of the planet.

The professors also participated in educational workshops that used recycled materials and visited the Araucária Trail on Klabin's property in Correia Pinto. The program aims to raise environmental awareness among teachers to turn them into multipliers of knowledge among students of public schools, while preparing content that can contribute to the academic curriculum.

The Caiubi Program

To disseminate the concepts of ecological awareness among teachers in the communities where it operates, Klabin launched the Caiubi Program in Paraná in 2001. In Santa Catarina, the project has been held since 2007 through a partnership with the Departments of Education. Since its launch, the Program has already held 24 editions and benefitted nearly 1,000 teachers from 346 schools and more than 106,000 students.
