Tree Day: Klabin actively conserves native woodlands

The principal actions of the company include maintenance of natural reserves and forest stewardship in a mosaic

São Paulo, 22nd of September 2014 – Klabin, Brazil’s biggest paper manufacturer and exporter, is deeply concerned with preservation of native woodland in the regions where it has forestry operations. An example of this is its maintenance of RPPN’s – Private Natural Heritage Reserves – areas of preserved native woodland dedicated to conservation of biodiversity and scientific research.

The first of these, established on the Monte Alegre Farm, in Telemaco Borba (PR), has an area of 3,852 hectares. Besides maintaining and protecting the environment, the reserve is also used to promote environmental education with students from the region’s schools, company employees and the community at large.

In May this year, Klabin inaugurated its new conservation unit, located in Santa Catarina. With almost 5 thousand hectares in extension, the RPPN of Serra da Farofa Complex is split up into six large blocks located in the Santa Catarina municipalities of Painel, Urupema, Rio Rufino, Urubici and Bocaina do Sul. The reserve contains the sources of the Caveiras and Canoas rivers that are of major importance to the region. The conservation unit has already identified nearly 600 species of flora and 75 of fauna.

The company, in conjunction with Apremavi (Association for Preservation of the Environment and Life), also introduced the Legal Woods Program, which offers small and medium-sized land-owners in the States of Parana and Santa Catarina guidance on how to become more efficient and profitable, with a focus on preserving ecosystems. The program offers courses, speeches and visits, as well as the seedlings of native plants for the environmental recuperation of properties.

In addition to these actions, Klabin practices forest stewardship in a mosaic format. By intermingling the forests planted with pine and eucalyptus with preserved native woodlands, this system has enabled the consolidation of ecological corridors, which facilitate the coexistence and transit of wildlife in its natural habitat and directly contribute to the protection of the soil and biodiversity.

Comprised of over 242 thousand hectares of forests planted for pulp production and 212 thousand hectares of native Atlantic Rainforest dedicated to preserving the original fauna and flora and conserving water sources, more than 40% of Klabin’s total forestry area is set aside for preservation of the environment, testifying to the company’s commitment to sustainable development.

Ponte Alta do Norte hosted the 24th edition of the Caiubi Program

Action helped to prepare teachers with environmental training and awareness

Correia Pinto, 17th of September 2014 – Klabin, Brazil’s biggest paper manufacturer and exporter, held the 24th edition of the Caiubi Program in conjunction with the Municipal Secretary of Education of the town of Ponte Alta do Norte. The purpose of the project is to spread environmental awareness, by providing training for teachers from the region. This edition took place at Klabin’s Correia Pinto Plant between 17 and 18 September and benefited 50 teachers from the town of Ponte Alta do Norte. The goal of the program is for these teachers, after training, to spread the knowledge they have acquired among students from the public school system.

For the two days, participants attend lectures and practical activities on environmental awareness, and receive guidance on fauna, flora, sustainability and forest stewardship. The Environmental Police contribute with a lecture and games involving environmental education. Additionally, they have the opportunity to get to know the Crescer Florestal Program, run by Klabin in partnership with SESI. On the occasion, a presentation was given of the pedagogical strategies used with Klabin’s employees for ongoing education. Following that, the teachers learned about the Legal Woods Program, run by Klabin in conjunction with APREMAVI, which advises rural property owners how to make the most of their lands, profiting more from them and preserving ecosystems.

This edition included two lectures: “The future depends on us”, given by forest engineer Vilmar Picinatto, from UDESC (University of the State of Santa Catarina), who spoke about how practicing environmental citizenship contributes to the planet’s healthy development; and the lecture on the Environmental Management System in Klabin’s plants in Santa Catarina, which was followed by a visit to the industrial area.

The Caiubi Program
Klabin started the Caiubi Program in Parana, in 2001, in order to disseminate concepts of ecological awareness among teachers from the communities where it operates.
In Santa Catarina, the project has run since 2007 and is promoted in partnership with the Secretaries of Education. The action has had 23 editions, since it was first created, and has benefited almost 1,000 teachers from 340 schools and over 106 thousand students.

Klabin introduces a new model of corrugated box at the 4th edition of FEIBANANA

Klabin introduces a new model of corrugated box

São Paulo, August 20, 2014 - Klabin, Brazil’s biggest producer and exporter of packaging paper, will introduce, at the 4th edition of the Banana Culture and Agribusiness Fair in Vale do Ribeiro, its new corrugated boxes exclusively projected to transport bananas, as an efficient and economical solution for the market’s requirements.

Tests made with producers and distributors of the fruit helped in the development of the boxes. This model comes with four edge protectors of corrugated board, which considerably increase the stacking capability of the new boxes, and also special treatments of the flutes and inner liner, which retard moisture absorption. The boxes are extremely strong, stand up to long hauls, have excellent ventilation and they can be acclimatized without the need to be arranged in a beehive format.

The event, the key topic of which will be General Knowledge and Agribusiness for the Sustainable Culture of Bananas, will be held between the 21st to the 23rd of August in the town of Registro (SP).

Santa Catarina, 7th of August 2014 - Klabin received the Onda Verde Trophy during the 21st edition of the Expressão Ecology Awards, which took place in Santa Catarina. The purpose of the awards is to divulge the environmental and sustainable actions of companies in the Southern Region of Brazil and thereby stimulate and affect other companies. Klabin was chosen in the category of “Conservation of Production Inputs – Water”, calling attention to the efforts made by the company to reduce the water resources withdrawn from the Canoas River.

Preservation of the environment is a priority for Klabin and is an integral part of company management and the day-to-day of the industrial plants. Water is an important resource in pulp and paper production and Klabin’s mills have their own targets to reduce consumption. An example is the work the company has carried out in Santa Catarina. The Otacilio Costa Plant, located 223 kilometers from the state capital, has reduced water consumption by 54% over the last three years. Initiatives such as these underscore the company’s principles of sustainability in all its activities concerning products and services, in which it conducts itself in an economically viable, socially just and environmentally correct manner.

This edition included two lectures which are worthy of special note: The future depends on us, given by forestry engineer Vilmar Picinatto – UDESC (University of the State of Santa Catarina), who spoke about how practicing environmental citizenship contributes to the healthy development of the planet. And the second one was The Right Way, given by Klabin’s safety team, which was aimed at raising the awareness of safety aspects in transport to the schools of the region.
