Telêmaco Borba’s artistic gymnastics project, supported by Klabin, excels in national championship

In partnership with the municipal government, Klabin invests in the initiative that already shows good results in important competitions across the country  

Paraná, August 23, 2018 – The dedication and talent of athletes from the Artistic Gymnastics Training Center (CTGA) of Telêmaco Borbawere the highlight at the National Artistic Gymnastics Championship, considered the sport’s flagship event in the country, held in the city of Santos, São Paulo, between August 13 and 15. The sport has been taught for eight years through a partnership between Klabin and the municipal government of Telêmaco Borba, and ensures the development of the sport, thereby positively contributing to the physical and cultural development of youth in the region.

The results of the discipline and dedication to the sport were evident during the competition. Nataly Rentz (14) was the champion in the youth category, which had 83 competitors. In the pre-teen category, Ariele Vitória Miranda (10), Izadora Lima Lacerda (9) and Melany Vitória Prestes (10) secured the 14th, 17th and 18th places, respectively. “Fractions of points define the rankings in this sport and they achieved an excellent result. This group will be a game changer, because now the project has evolved and the younger girls, who are just starting, have a reference a what they can achieve," says coach Fulas.

Today, the Center trains 100 girls aged 5-14 free of charge. Klabin supports the project by providing the gym’s infrastructure, such as bars, flooring, ventilators and other resources. It also sponsors the hiring of the coach, Juliano Fulas, and collaborates in external events by financing the lodging, transportation and meals for the group.

Klabin monitors the performance of the project and believes in its purpose. “We are committed to contributing to the local development and, incentives to education and sports are among our main venues for doing so. Initiatives like this are aligned with our Sustainability Policy and with the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” says Uilson Paiva, Community Relations Manager at Klabin.

Klabin recently participated in the Brazilian Congress on Natural Heritage Private Reserves (RPPN), organized at Costão do Santinho in Florianópolis, as a major supporter of sustainability and environmental preservation.

Paraná, August 22, 2018 – The Congress brought together around 300 participants, including owners and managers of reserves, public administrators, NGOs, companies and others. The main objective of the event was to discuss the importance of the private sector in preserving biodiversity and the future of RPPNs in Brazil.


Klabin maintains the Serra da Farofa Complex RPPN, officially designated as a conservation unit in 2014, which covers the cities of Painel, Rio Rufino, Bocaina do Sul, Urupema and Urubici, being the first conservation unit in the RPPN category established by Klabin in the state of Santa Catarina. It is one of the largest in this category in Santa Catarina, conserving approximately five thousand hectares of preserved native forest remnants, intended exclusively for environmental protection and scientific research.

Concept
Natural Heritage Private Reserves (RPPN) are private areas intended to preserve regions of ecological or landscaping importance. These are created at the initiative of owners, who request the environmental agency to recognize their properties, partially or fully, as a Natural Heritage Private Reserve (RPPN) and register it perpetually at the notary public, at the margin of the property deed.

Remada Ambiental organizes waste collection campaign in Paranaguá

Event organized by Klabin gathered more than 150 people who participated in a morning of activities focused on raising environmental awareness about the Itiberê River

 

Paraná, August 20, 2018 – Considered one of the main postcards of Paranaguá, the ItiberêRiver was the venue of an event last Saturday (Aug. 18) - the Remada Ambiental, organized by Klabin in partnership with the municipal government. Accompanied by instructors, participants traversed about four kilometers down the river using kayaks and boards to collect waste along the way. According to Paviservice, responsible for waste collection and urban cleaning services in the city, during the campaign, over 4.5 tons of material, most of it recyclable, were removed from the river and transported to the city’s Recycling Cooperative.

“I came at the invitation of my friends; I didn't think I would find all this trash. Earlier, there was no such knowledge, but today we're seeing a more conscious generation. It’s up to us to take care of the world we live in. I’ll surely pass on this experience to my friends and will take up this cause more vehemently,” says Fernanda Sgarboza, a volunteer from Paranaguá.

Besides paddling down the river, the event provided educational comics to the children present – among them 5th year students from the Professora Berta Rodrigues Municipal School – who also watched “Capitão Coleta”, a theatrical presentation in which the heroine teaches the importance of selective collection and correct separation of waste in order to preserve the environment. The children also received seedlings of native trees, which will be planted around the school.

Adriana Costa, a Paranaguá resident who participated in the campaign with her husband and two kids, commented on the importance of raising awareness among children from an early age. “We live off the sea, everything there is alive and garbage doesn’t jibe with nature. It’s very important to pass this lesson on to children, to bring them to see the garbage up close and show them the reality. You must see it to believe it!", she said.

Klabin organizes training seminar on rural roads

The initiative, targeted at employees from 12 municipalities in the region, addressed highway construction and maintenance

Paraná, August 20, 2018 – Klabin held in Vila Lagoa, Telêmaco Borba, the1st Seminar on the Construction and Maintenance  of Rural Highways, for teams responsible for infrastructure constructions at 12 municipalities in the region of Campos Gerais. The seminar, held on August 14 and 15, presented to state construction secretaries and technicians the best practices in the construction and maintenance of rural highways, an important asset for the company and the cities, whose economies are based on agriculture. In 2017 alone, Klabin built 500 kilometers of roads to support the forest supply logistics of its two plants in the state of Paraná, which also benefited the local population.

 

The classes were given by professionals from Malinovski Florestal, a consulting firm that specializes in excellence in forest operations, and the schedule included theory and practical activities on the field. The modules addressed topics such as planning, preparation, paving, draining and maintenance of rural highways. “We know that the cities in the region have this demand for maintenance of rural roads and that’s why the event sought to share Klabin’s experience in this field,” said Darlon Orlamunder de Souza, Forestry Logistics Manager at Klabin.

For the mayor of Rosário do Ivaí, Ilton Kuroda, the course brought a new perspective as to what local administrators can do. The city will benefit greatly from what was presented. Now I have the real notion of what can be done on the highways and my team will be able to apply all this knowledge. It was a very explanatory course and we hope to have more in the future.”

“I was able to learn more from this course and we will disseminate what we learned. We have indigenous areas and settlements that depend on rural roads, and we will certainly put theory into practice in our city,” said Laercio Pereira Correia, vice-mayor of São Jerônimo da Serra.

Edson de Lima Rodrigues, a motor grader operator working for the municipality of Imbaú, believes he is better qualified after the seminar. “I learned many different things that I had no idea how they worked. I will do my job much better now and will disseminate this knowledge among my colleagues,” he added.  

“The qualification of municipal employees who work on the construction and maintenance of rural highways is one way of promoting regional development, with a direct impact on the quality of life, logistics and safety of the local population,” explained Uilson Paiva, the Community Relations, Environment and Forestry Certification Manager at Klabin. “This is in line with our Sustainability Policy and with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”

Employees of the following municipalities participated in the seminar: Rosário do Ivaí, Rio Branco do Ivaí, Tibagi, Telêmaco Borba, Imbaú, Jaguariaíva, Curiúva, Ventania, Sengés, São Jerônimo da Serra, Cândido de Abreu and Reserva.

Klabin invests more than R$20 million on improvements to the highway and bridge in the region of Reserva, Paraná

Renovation work on the 100-km stretch of the Botocudos Highway will also benefit the cities of Cândido de Abreu, Imbaú, Rio Branco do Ivaí and Rosário do Ivaí

Klabin invests more than R$20 million on improvements to the highway and bridge in the region of Reserva, Paraná 

Renovation work on the 100-km stretch of the Botocudos Highway will also benefit the cities of Cândido de Abreu, Imbaú, Rio Branco do Ivaí and Rosário do Ivaí 

Paraná, August 10, 2018 – The rural highway Botocudos in the city of Reserva, Paraná, received infrastructure improvements of around R$ 22 million through investments made by Klabin. The inauguration ceremony was held on August 10, in which company executives, mayors and local authorities from the region participated. The renovation work will also benefit the cities of Cândido de Abreu, Imbaú, Rio Branco do Ivaí and Rosário do Ivaí

The project involved asphalt pavement of 6 km, construction of a 100-meter bridge over the Peixe River, and widening and renovating the highway throughout its 100-km stretch. The works, which began in 2014, have made the highway safer for drivers, while reducing cargo transport time. Rodrigo Costa, a Klabin driver in the region, said that the improvement has reduced his transit time by nearly 60 minutes. “With the bridge and the new road, besides the reduction in transit time, we are now more confident about transporting cargo,” he highlighted.

Practicing social responsibility in the communities where it operates is part of Klabin’s Sustainability Policy. “Investments in infrastructure improvement promote regional development, which is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)," said José Totti, Forestry Director at Klabin.

In practice, this means greater safety and comfort for the local population. For instance, earlier, during heavy rains, water from the Peixe River would cover the bridge, leaving residents and drivers marooned. “I used to be scared of my husband falling into the water, but now things have improved a lot,” said Neiva Farias de Campos, a resident of Botocudos.

The road delivery ceremony was held at the City Council of Reserva, with the presence of the mayor of Reserva, Frederico Hornung (a.k.a. Neto), the Speaker of the Council, Aleixo Lopata, the mayor of Rio Branco do Ivaí, Gerôncio Rosa and the mayor of Rosário do Ivaí, Hilton Kuroda, and other city council members.

Klabin hosts Annual Meeting of the Logistics Operation in Paranaguá

Klabin hosts Annual Meeting of the Logistics Operation in Paranaguá

Paraná, July 20, 2018 – Klabin, Brazil’s leading producer and exporter of packaging paper and the country’s only company to offer a one-stop solution for hardwood, softwood and fluff pulp, hosted on July 12 and 13 the Annual Meeting of the Logistics Operation in Paranaguá, Paraná. Held at Klabin’s Unit in the city and at Coopanexos (Cooperative of Cargo and Associated Freight Transport), the meeting showcased Klabin’s results in the two years of operation in Paranaguá and featured actions on safety and environmental awareness for more than 230 employees and contractors who work in the region.

During the two-day event, logistics and port operators, shipping agents and dockworkers participated in debates and lectures on workplace safety and the company’s environmental initiatives, such as Selective Trash Collection projects. Third-party port operators and drivers also watched the play "We're all safety agents”, of the Na Mão Certa (On the Right Track) Program, produced by Childhood Brasil. Klabin became a signatory to the national project that seeks to combat the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents on highways.

Both groups celebrated the milestone, reached in June, of 100 ships loaded with hardwood pulp (eucalyptus) sailing from the Port of Paranaguá.  The 100th ship transported products to China, which received 80% of the company's total exports in the last two years. Since 2016, when operations at the Port began, the company has already shipped 1.9 million tons of pulp. With this, Paranaguá became the country’s fifth biggest port to ship this product.

The Logistics Unit

Inaugurated in 2016, the Paranaguá Pulp and Paper Logistics Unit is exclusively dedicated to shipping hardwood pulp to export markets. It has the capacity to handle 900,000 tons of the raw material per year. Spread over 24,000 sq.m. of built-up area, the operation also has a 23.5-km railway line connecting the Puma Unit (in the city of Ortigueira, Paraná, where the pulp is produced) to the Central do Paraná Railway station, and operates 7 locomotives and 306 wagons owned by Klabin.

Klabin sends South American tapirs to repopulate areas where the species was extinct

Klabin sends South American tapirs to repopulate areas where the species was extinct

July 20, 2018 – Born in the Samuel Klabin Ecological Park, located in Telêmaco Borba, Petrúquio, Flora and Ronaldo are three tapirs who now live in the wild.Thanks to a joint effort with the Refauna Project, after a period of adaptation, the animals started living in a reserve in the city of Cachoeiras de Macacu in the state of Rio de Janeiro.In their new home, they are known as Valente, Flora and Júpter – the males were rechristened by the local community – and joined another couple, Eva and Floquinho, who were reintroduced into the wild in December 2017.The five tapirs are the first in their species to inhabit the region after at least a century of extinction.

The three tapirs travelled over one thousand kilometers to reach their new home.According to the vet at the Ecological Park, Dr. Pedro Chaves Camargo, the animals were born in Klabin’s scientific incubator in 2000, 2006 and 2008, respectively, and belong to the second generation of the tapir reproduction project launched by the Park in the late 1990s.

According to him, tapirs are large animals, weigh between 200 and 300 kg and are essential for the preservation of biodiversity.“It is one of the endangered species in Brazil.They are herbivores and are known as gardeners of the nature because, by eating fruits from trees and bushes, they spread the seed along the way, thereby making an important contribution to biodiversity,” highlights Dr. Camargo.

According to Maron Galliez, coordinator of the Refauna Project and professor at the Federal Institute of Rio de Janeiro, the animals will be monitored through telemetry collars and camera traps.The tapirs were reintroduced through a soft release technique, that is, they went through a period of adaptation, encircled by a fence inside the forest, with food supplementation.  After 30 days, the fence was opened and the tapirs were set off, but the food supplementation continues,” said Maron.

Klabin’s Sustainability and Environment manager, Júlio César Batista Nogueira, affirms that contributing to the repopulation of this species is an action of tremendous value for the company.“Investing in the preservation of biodiversity is part of our contribution to a renewable future and strengthens our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” he adds.

The three animals were in the adaptation process since June and were released into the wild recently.The purpose of the project is to relocate the animals raised in captivity into the wildlife.For this, we seek partnerships with conservationist and zoological incubators and, in this scenario, Klabin stands out for its structure and quality in animal treatment,” adds Maron.

 

About the Ecological Park.

Created in the 1980s, the Samuel Klabin Ecological Park is located in the Monte Alegre Farm in Telêmaco Borba. It is spread on an area of approximately 11,000 hectares, of which 71% is covered by natural forests. Its activities include biodiversity conservation, wildlife rehabilitation, preservation of endangered species, scientific research and support to environmental education projects. Since 1989, it has dedicated itself to scientific breeding, combining conservation and the study of the behavior of endangered wildlife species, promoting their reproduction and reintroduction into the environment, all in accordance with environmental regulations.About 200 animals of 50 different species, including the puma, the pigmy brocket deer and the South American tapir, live in the park.

The park was restructured in recent previous years and is closed for visitors in order to facilitate the readaptation of animals to the new facilities.In addition to the scientific incubator, the park also has the nature interpretation center and ecological trails for environmental education actions and for direct contact with local biodiversity.

Klabin reports results of Solid Waste Project

At a meeting, representatives of cities participating in the project learned about all the initiatives already implemented and the next steps

At a meeting held on June 8 at the Puma Unit in Ortigueira, Paraná, Klabin and Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium presented all the initiatives implemented and the targets set for the Solid Waste Project to mayors and environment secretaries of the seven cities participating in the project.

At the meeting, the sustainability and environment manager of Klabin presented all the indicators of the project, such as training, equipment donated, Company’s investments and selective garbage collection actions in each city. The institutional video of the project was also played.   “Our purpose is to show that all the cities performed well and to outline the next steps of this important project," said Júlio César Batista Nogueira, Sustainability and Environment Manager at Klabin.

“This close relationship gives transparency to our initiatives with the communities and we can thus engage the cities in the sustainable development of the region,” pointed out Uilson Paiva, Community Relations Manager at Klabin. According to Ricardo Hornung, CEO of the Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium, the results of the Solid Waste Project can already be perceived by the population of the seven cities. “The main purpose is to increase the volume recycled by imparting environmental education and by reducing the waste sent to landfills, thereby improving the separation process for cooperatives and, consequently, improving the quality of life of their members,” he concluded.             

Mayors and environment secretaries of cities in the region participated in the Solid Waste Project meeting at the Puma Unit.

 

About the project

The goal of Klabin’s partnership with the Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium, formed by the cities of Imbaú, Ortigueira, Reserva, Tamarana, Tibagi and Telêmaco Borba, is to assist in the management of solid waste. The initiative is part of the Social and Environmental Action Plan drawn up by Klabin while setting up the Puma Unit in Ortigueira. Between 2014 and 2016, the company conducted a study and diagnosis of the chain of solid waste of each city, after which action plans were drawn up.

For the project, Klabin provided the cities with structures or equipment such as sheds, selective garbage collection trucks and materials to structure the recycling process in each place, besides training the collectors and forming associations or cooperatives to organize the work. Each city received inputs according to the needs presented in the action plan.

Another focus area of the project is environmental education at municipal schools, which trains teachers and pedagogical coordinators to work on and disseminate the concepts of selective collection and recycling among students during the year.

Klabin also implemented the project and is leading the environmental licensing process to build the a Consortium Landfill. Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium will build and manage the landfill, which is expected to become operational in 2019, comprising the disposal of waste produced by the cities participating in the project.

Klabin addresses the issue of Solid Waste in Environment Month campaign

The purpose of the campaign is to demonstrate the company’s concern not only with the disposal of waste produced by industrial processes

In the month in which World Environment Day is celebrated (June 5), Klabin launched the “Your Waste Has a Future” campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to demonstrate the company’s concern not only with the disposal of waste produced by industrial processes, but also with the sustainable development of the communities where it is present. Klabin supports the UN commitment to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and has joined hands with other organizations to put into practice a global action plan for the benefit of people, the planet, as well as peace and prosperity.

Key points on these two issues are included in Klabin’s Sustainability Policy. Item 6 addresses the prevention of pollution by reducing the environmental impacts of its production processes, while item 11 addresses the practice of social responsibility with the focus on communities where Klabin operates.

As a result, Klabin this month reports that 92% of industrial waste from the Monte Alegre and Puma units are recycled and converted into agricultural inputs and construction materials. Also worth mention is the Solid Waste Project, Klabin’s initiative in partnership with the Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium, for the management of solid waste generated in seven cities in the Campos Gerais region of Paraná.

Klabin publishes Public Summary 2018 of Forestry Management Plan for Santa Catarina

With over one thousand species preserved, Klabin’s forest stewardship model confirms the importance of the mosaic system for protecting local fauna and flora

Santa Catarina, June 11, 2018 – Klabin published on its website the Public Summary 2018 of its Forestry Stewardship Plan for Santa Catarina 2018, which has over 135,000 hectares of certified planted forests and protected native forests. The document’s purpose is to promote good practices for conserving the company’s forest areas in the region and to report on social and environmental indicators and on the results of efforts to protect and monitor the state’s fauna and flora.

The Summary highlights the importance of adequate forest management for preserving the region’s biome. Klabin is a pioneer in adopting mosaic-based stewardship, which consists of pine and eucalyptus planted forests interspersed with preserved native forests, forming ecological corridors that allow native wildlife to roam their natural habitat while contributing directly to protecting the soil and biodiversity.  

The material presents information on the surveys conducted to ensure the maintenance and improvement of forest productivity, the monitoring of drainage basins, fauna and flora, silviculture forestry operations, harvest operations, road construction and maintenance, social and environmental programs and interaction with communities that directly and indirectly influence the operations, as well as the company’s communication channels. In addition to providing geo-climatic data for the region, the biological elements in the local environment are another highlight of the publication that presents the preservation of 914 native species of flora and 390 of fauna. Of these, 128 species of flora and 346 of fauna are listed as endangered, with recognized conservation status.
