São Paulo, November 27, 2015 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter, was selected as a component of the Corporate Sustainability Index (ISE) of the BM&FBovespa for the third year in a row. The progress made in the company's performance was due to its reference efforts in climate change and its continuous improvement in social and environmental practices, as well as other criteria established by the stock index.

The objective of the ISE is to create an investment environment that is compatible with the demands of sustainable development and to encourage ethical responsibility through good business practices. "Seeing Klabin included in the ISE for yet another year brings a great sense of pride and validates our firm commitment to sustainable development. To Klabin, sustainability is incorporated throughout the entire value chain, from our forestry base to our relations with partners and the market," said José Totti, Chief Forestry Officer at Klabin.

The index's new portfolio is valid from Jan. 4, 2016 to Dec. 29, 2016. The selection of component stocks is based on criteria developed by the School of Economics and Business Administration (EAESP) at the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (FGV). To be selected as a component, companies must excel in good practices in sustainability, divided into seven dimensions: General, Environmental, Climate Change, Social, Governance, Financial and Product Type. In addition to completing questionnaires for each dimension, the companies are subjected to an evaluation of documentary evidence to corroborate the quality of their management and controls in the selected topics.

Klabin participates in the WWF Environmental Performance Report

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

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 was recently recognized as the company with the best practice in Natural Capital Management by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Latin America.The company posted outstanding results in Natural Capital Management:100% certification of planted forests and the target to certify all suppliers in three years, 3% increase in water reuse;86.5% of renewable energy sources, 55.6% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over the last 10 years and reduction of 94,000 tons per year in fuel oil consumption, preventing the emission of 290,000 tons of CO2 per year.

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.

His feelings are shared by the secretaries of Education in the two cities.

“We are very grateful to Klabin for its partnership and recognition of our project for early childhood education, because we believe that investment at the base is essential to quality education," said Lucia Raquel Rodrigues Ortiz, secretary of Education in Correia Pinto.

“For Education professionals like us, particularly those that work with early childhood education, this space is extremely important, because the playground is where the child expands their choices, their repertoire of actions, their feeling of freedom, autonomy and creativity to develop motor, social, emotional and interpersonal skills,” said Eliane de Souza Pereira, secretary of Education in Otacílio Costa.

The two cities have already participated in the Grow Up Reading project to encourage reading for children over six years old in partnership with the NGO United Way Brazil and Instituto Avisa Lá.The initiative works to train teachers, donate reading nooks with an archive of 450 books and hold storytelling workshops for parents and Klabin volunteers.The Grow Up Reading Project has already benefitted 19 cities in the seven states where Klabin operates.The initiative has influenced more than 1,500 children and by the end of 2015, the Company expects to expand the initiative to a total of 3,400 students.
