Additional information

Suzano's main direct emissions (scope 1) are related to the consumption of fossil fuels in the stationary equipment of the industrial units. Other significant sources of emissions can be observed in the forest units through the consumption of fossil fuels by mobile sources in silviculture and harvesting operations, in logistical operations, and the use of nitrogen fertilizers and soil correction (liming).  In general, the absolute value followed the increase in production. A breakdown by category is available in the indicator "Direct greenhouse gas emissions (scope 1), by category".

For comparison with the base year and methodological alignment with Suzano's Commitments to Renewing Life, we used GWP indices from the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The data were also calculated with metrics from the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and can be made available upon request.

All reported values have been verified by an independent third party.
