  1. There is a slight increase in the monetary value of significant fines still outstanding due to an assessment issued by the State Environmental Institute of Espírito Santo (IEMA- ES) due to an alleged impact on a Conservation Unit (UC) resulting from the company's operations. Suzano understood the assessment to be unfounded and is disputing the amounts through an administrative defense. The monetary values of significant fines still open from 2021 were reset to zero due to the cancellation of fine no. 42001164, issued by the Environmental Company of the State of São Paulo (Cetesb), duly accounted for in 2022. The Notice of Infraction had been issued due to the alleged emission of atmospheric pollutants (Particulate Matter, Sulfur Dioxide, and Nitrogen Oxides) above the legal limit, and our defense was accepted. There was a reduction in the monetary value of significant fines still outstanding from 2019 due to the annulment of a Notice of Infraction issued by the municipality of Bom Jesus das Selvas (PA) for BRL 500,000.00. The annulment was through the unappealable court decision rendered in case no. 0801189-76.2019.8.10.0028. Suzano believes that all the actions recorded in this Report are unfounded, and the company has presented its defense or appropriate administrative appeal. Significant fines or sanctions include amounts above US$ 10,000.00, according to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
