context

The Administrative Council's responsibilities are foreseen in the law, in Suzano's Bylaws, in its Internal Regulations, and other company policies. Besides this, the Administrative Council will deliberate, whenever appropriate, on ESG Practices, ethics, compliance, risks, information security, and other important topics for Suzano, including those related to climate change.

The Board of Directors currently has six Advisory Committees that guide and help the Board of Directors to decide on subjects within its competence. These Committees are formed by members of the Board, Suzano’s employees, independent members, and specialists.

The Administrative Council may also hire consulting services or independent opinions to assist in understanding topics, as long as within the budget previously approved by it. Furthermore, all Administrative Council members  have free access to Suzano's executives for clarification on any subject related to their duties, in compliance with the best corporate governance practices.
