Klabin and NUCOFFEE sign partnership agreement to use sustainable bags in coffee exports

High-barrier paper bags are more resistant and preserve grain quality for longer

São Paulo, September 14, 2017 – With its focus on business expansion, Klabin has partnered with NUCOFFEE, a platform developed by Syngenta, which operates on all fronts of the coffee chain, promoting integration among producers, cooperatives and roasters by selling high quality coffee. The company chose Klabin’s industrial bags to serve overseas clients, who were satisfied with the new packaging that offers greater resistance and quality, besides reducing costs across the entire process.

High-barrier paper packaging is one of the most efficient solutions in preserving the original characteristics of specialty coffees destined for export, according to a research entitled "Evaluation of Packaging and Methods of Storage for Specialty Coffees", conducted by the Federal University of Lavras (UFLA-MG), in partnership with Klabin, the Brazil Specialty Coffee Association (BSCA) and the Brazilian Agency for Promotion of Exports and Investments (Apex), among others. The report’s findings have revolutionized the consumption of packaging across the coffee industry, since vacuum-packing was considered the best storage system by most coffee importers.

Besides preserving the original characteristics of the product, high-barrier paper bags are recyclable and produced from renewable natural resources, with the raw material coming from Klabin’s planted and certified forests. “As such, our clients can offer a better quality and more sustainable product to the domestic and international markets, while also differentiating the Brazilian product abroad", says Douglas Dalmasi, Industrial Bags Director at Klabin.

“This partnership added value and brought us a new market opportunity, while enabling NUCOFFEE expand its product offering for exports with more resistant and recyclable packaging, which enables our company to continue playing a fundamental role in the sustainable development of coffee in Brazil and around the world," pointed out Roberta Armentano Rossi, Trade Operations Manager at NUCOFFEE.

Klabin's high-barrier paper bags are made of high-strength extensible paper, are airtight due to a closure system that consists of a high-barrier film that offers protection from light, as well as an Easy Open system that facilitates bag opening.

Klabin’s Sowing Education to benefit 11,000 students in Campos Gerais, Paraná

Under curatorship of FALCONI Educação, the project will benefit 31 schools in the cities of Telêmaco Borba, Ortigueira and Imbaú

Paraná, August 31, 2017 – Klabin engages in social responsibility initiatives in the communities surrounding its operations and considers education to be of the uttermost importance. Therefore, in partnership with the Paraná State Government, the company created the Klabin Sowing Education project, which aims to strengthen the management of public schools in the state, and consequently improve the education offered to students. The project has curatorship of FALCONI Educação, a leading management consultancy in Brazil.

Klabin’s Sowing Education will focus on the cities of Telêmaco Borba, Ortigueira and Imbaú, which are directly influenced by the company’s plants in the state of Paraná. A total of 31 schools will benefit from the project, which focuses on students enrolled in grades 7-12, totaling around 11,000 students. In the long run, the improved education will better prepare students for vocational and undergraduate higher learning programs.

“Education is one of the main pillars of evolution of society, and at Klabin it is present in our sustainability goals dedicated to the development of the communities where we operate. With Klabin’s Sowing Education project, we aim to bring school agents closer to processes and planning methods that can increase the schools' performance, which will benefit students in the medium and long-term, with a direct impact on the region's development,” said Sergio Piza, director of People & Management, Sustainability and Communication at Klabin.

In partnership with the Regional Education Center of Telêmaco Borba, which is responsible for monitoring the performance and results of the guidelines set by the State Education Department, Klabin conducted a diagnosis of the current situation regarding the management of the schools and the regions where they are installed. The goal is to strengthen the partnership among school community stakeholders, so that all topics pertaining to the educational system are widely discussed among parents, students, teachers, employees, assistants, education professionals, consultants and the direction, which is responsible for managing the institutions. Klabin believes that through interaction and permanent contact with these stakeholders, schools in the region will be able to achieve even better management results.

“We believe in the proposal and in the partnership, because Klabin’s Sowing Education project is consistent with the priorities set by the State Education Department on School Management. The activities currently being developed aim to align actions that focus on the teaching-learning process, thus helping boost educational performance indicators,” said Sueli Aparecida Martins, head of the Regional Education Center of Telêmaco Borba.

“The initiatives under Klabin’s Sowing Education are genuine and aim to bring the school community closer together and forge stronger bonds. Only together, with each one performing their role collaboratively, is that we will be able to contribute to a much greater purpose, which is to see and create room for regional development and transformation of our reality through education,” said Maurício Rodrigues Gil, Klabin’s coordinator in the Sowing Education project.

One of the ongoing initiatives of Klabin’s Sowing Education is the training of school managers. From a pedagogical perspective, the initiative focuses on indicators and tools that help strengthen the analytical capacity of schools and improve managers’ capacity to plan their school’s objectives throughout the year. To become effective, these plans require the active participation of everyone in the school community. For that reason, Klabin has been training managers and monitoring the institutions’ indicators, promoting dialogue and discussions among workgroups for the proposition of objective actions, with specific deadlines and that can improve school performance. Performance is monitored through meetings and each school is responsible for their accountability and for closely monitoring the project’s progress. The overall progress of the program is then presented to the State Education Department every two months. The first meeting was held in July.

Klabin carries out improvement works on Highway PR-160 and scheduled its closure on Sunday, August 13

The highway will be temporarily blocked on both ways from 8:30 to 13:00

Paraná, August 10, 2017 – Next Sunday, 13th, due to works on the bridge of Tibagi River in Telêmaco Borba (PR), Highway P-160 will be temporarily blocked both ways from 8h30 to 13h. In this period, the highway will be closed for 30 minutes for three times, each followed by traffic open in both ways for one hour. That’s why Klabin asks drivers to avoid, if possible, driving in the area during the highway closure period. Other traffic closures are scheduled and will be announced in due time.

This procedure seeks to minimize any nuisance that the temporary highway closure may cause. Klabin stresses that the works will bring several benefits to vehicle traffic in the region, contributing to the safety of drivers and the population, besides facilitating traffic flow and speed even more in the area.

 

Improvement works

In the first quarter of July, Klabin concluded the first phase of the works, the third lane of Highway PR-160 in the stretch that links Reception Area 3 of Monte Alegre Unit to Reception 2. The 2nd phase, already in progress, is to reinforce and maintain the bridge and build a new pedestrian footpath. The next phase plans the construction of a 3rd lane between the Tibagi River bridge and the viaduct of Telêmaco Borba.

 

Klabin will be pleased to receive comments and suggestions from the community on 0800 728 0607 or via e-mail faleklabinpr@klabin.com.br.
