Suzano's training takes place in-person, online through Microsoft Teams or through the UniverSuzano platform.  In keeping with the "New Better" movement, which is the name given to the program proposed by the company for the safety and well-being of employees since the resumption of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have adapted and invested our efforts to develop our team through e-learning training, which allows them total flexibility to watch UniverSuzano's content from wherever they are. Regarding the compulsory face-to-face training, we follow all the safety protocols required by the company.

In addition, in 2022, we had the ELOS D+ program, which was crucial for women's career acceleration in the company. The amount of training hours for women is significantly small compared to the number of men trained, since proportionally the number of women in the company is smaller than the number of men.

For this indicator's calculations, we used as a base the number of employees on the last day of 2022. Thus, at that time, we had 118,861 employees. Of this total, 17,653 employees received training, being 3,237 women and 14,416 men.

  1. The data includes only full-time employees. In 2020, Facepa was fully integrated into Suzano S.A., and as of that year, its data are consolidated into the company's indicators, and not separately, as was previously the case. 
  2. In 2021, Ecofuturo's data were not available for publication.
  3. Although Suzano acknowledges the existence of more gender identities beyond these  (male and female), such as non-binary people and others, this approach was maintained in order to meet the indicators' requirements.
