Additional information

There was an increase in absolute emissions in the generation of electricity, heat, and steam due to increased production and fewer annual shutdowns in 2021.

In physical-chemical processing, removal occurs due to the precipitation process of calcium carbonate (CaCO₃), this input used in the industrial process. The reduction of this indicator accompanied the drop in the generation of electricity, heat, and steam because it is a sub-process of these units.

The materials, products, waste, employees, and passengers transportation had an increase, mainly due to the increased operation of the forestry units and the resumption of part of the operations after the COVID restrictions.

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.
