Klabin participates in the WWF Environmental Performance Report

Survey analyzed data and performance of 80 global companies in the paper industry

São Paulo, November 11, 2015 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter, participated for the second time in the Environmental Paper Company Index (EPCI), held every two years by WWF.The Company registered excellent performance in the survey, achieving a total score of 82%, up 7.5% from the overall score it obtained in the previous study published in 2013.The report evaluated the performance of 80 paper companies in countries across Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Africa in the following categories:newspapers, printing paper, tissue, pulp and packaging.


While evaluating the companies, WWF considered aspects such as the company’s influence on forest ecosystems, gas emissions and water pollution during the production process, and the environmental management system.Recognized as one of the largest global conservation organizations, WWF is present in 100 countries and has more than 5 million supporters.

“The pulp and paper sector has the unique potential to supply renewable materials that help do things as diverse as share knowledge, improve sanitation and keep food safe.However, this potential is diminished if poor logging practices degrade forests and deplete carbon stores, if plantations take land away from traditional communities, if pulp mills pollute air and water or if paper fit for recycling is burned.The Environmental Paper Company Index (EPCI) helps us assess if industry is making good on its promise of supplying essential products with reduced impact on nature," said Rod Taylor, director of WWF’s Global Forest Program.

Klabin is a company with a history dating back 116 years, whose essence is sustainability.The WWF recognition reaffirms the Company’s concern and efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its operations and to ensure transparency in managing the issue.The Company management is oriented towards sustainable development, with the goal of growing in an integrated manner by combing profitability, social development and commitment to the environment.

Klabin receives Paraná Climate Seal in the gold category

Initiative aims to encourage the culture of publishing corporate inventories of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change

Klabin receives Paraná Climate Seal in the gold category

Initiative aims to encourage the culture of publishing corporate inventories of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change

Curitiba, November 9, 2015 - Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter, received last Friday (November 6), the Paraná Climate Seal in the gold category, which recognizes companies that formulate and publish inventories of their greenhouse gas emissions. The seal, launched by the State Department of Environment and Water Resources together with the Federation of Industries of Paraná (FIEP) is a public registry that companies operating in the state of Paraná can voluntarily join.

"It is an honor for Klabin to be one of the first companies to have its Greenhouse Gas inventory voluntarily registered in the Paraná Climate Seal Program. It makes me even happier to have received the gold seal. In 2014, Klabin achieved a score of 86.5% in the use of renewable sources to generate energy, and the replacement of fuel oil with biomass also enabled its plants to drastically reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 61% in 8 years. And we are committed to reducing them further every year," said Julio Cesar Batista Nogueira, Corporate Environment Manager at Klabin.

The initiative, launched six months ago by the State Department of Environment and Water Resources, aims to encourage the culture of formulating and publishing corporate inventories of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Companies can voluntarily join the program and the seal has three categories: bronze, silver and gold.

The Gold Seal was given to companies whose inventories were verified by professionals or companies accredited by Brazil’s National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (Inmetro). The Silver Seal is given to companies whose inventories were verified by licensed professionals or companies. The Bronze Seal was given to companies that joined the Public Registry. The inventories show the gases emitted by companies and the respective volumes. With this Public Registry, the State Department of Environment expects to map out the most polluting industries to take decisions regarding mitigating efforts.

The event was held at the headquarters of Fiep in Curitiba and was attended by the State Secretary of Environment, Ricardo Soavinski, the president of Fiep, Edson Luiz Campanholo, the president of the Environmental Institute of Paraná (IAP), Tarcísio Mossato Pinto, the Corporate Environment Manager of Klabin, Julio Cesar Batista Nogueira, and representatives from participating companies.

Klabin conducts campaign to prevent wild animals from being hit by cars

With the slogan "less speed, more life," actions work to raise awareness among drivers in Paraná.

Telêmaco Borba, October 6, 2015 – Klabin, Brazil’s largest producer and exporter of packaging paper, began a campaign to prevent wild animals from being hit by cars on highway PR-160.The company installed road signs on the highway to raise awareness among drivers of this issue.

In Brazil, the main cause of death among wild animals is cars.According to the Brazilian Center for Study of Ecology on Highways (CBEE), each year, 475 million animals are run over on Brazilian highways, equal to nearly 15 deaths each second.In the Telêmaco Borba (PR) region, the most affected species are birds in general, the nine-banded armadillo, coati, pampas fox, southern tamandua, black and white tegu and the maned wolf.The Ecological Park maintained by Klabin in the city works to monitor and rescue animals struck on highways.In addition to rehabilitating animals, the Park also conserves biodiversity, preserves species facing extinction and local fauna, while developing scientific studies and supporting environmental education projects.

Klabin announces its Forest Management Plan for Angatuba

São Paulo, October 1, 2015 - Klabin, Brazil’s largest packaging paper producer and exporter, has made available on its website the Public Summary - Forestry Management Plan 2015for Angatuba, São Paulo. The plan presents Klabin initiatives for the good management of its forests and its social and environmental actions. This year, the document highlighted the recognition of the first High Conservation Value Area (HCVA) at the São Paulo Forestry Unit. These areas were recognized due to the extremely important biological characteristics identified in the region. One example is the presence of the muriqui monkey (Brachyteles arachnoides), which is classified by Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Resources (Ibama) and by the Ministry of the Environment as an endangered species.

Consolidated in 2014, the HCVA corresponds to a block of the São Miguel Farm located in the municipalities of São Miguel Arcanjo and Tapiraí, where Klabin's SP Forestry Unit has operations. The HCVA complies with the criteria of the "Common Guidance for the Identification of High Conservation Values" published by the High Conservation Value Resource Network (HCVRN). The HCVRN is a member-based network that includes representatives from producers, research organizations, consultants, auditors and professionals who share the mission of conserving critically important ecological, social and cultural values, as part of the responsible management of natural resources. The HCVRN offers services such as guidance documents, reviews of HCV reports and training.

The Public Summary also provides details on Klabin's forest areas in São Paulo, such as geoclimatic data, altitude, climate and hydrology data. It also clarifies the company's timber forestry management practices, including the different areas and operations, such as research, planning, forestry development, seedlings supply, silviculture and wood supply.

The Public Summary - Forestry Management Plan 2015 for Angatuba also includes the communication channels available for contacting Klabin. The file is available at:
