1. The indicator considers the following gases: carbon dioxide (CO₂), methane (CH₄), nitrous oxide.
The following references of emission factors were used: FGV (2019), IPCC (2007), MCTIC (2016) and MMA (2014). The emissions of each greenhouse gas (GHG) were converted into tCO₂e by multiplying their respective Global Warming Potential (GWP – IPCC, 2007; FGV, 2019; WRI & WBCSD, 2017).
The selection of the methodologies for quantification, data collection and use of emission factors was made based on the recommendations of the ABNT NBR ISO 14064-1 standard (ABNT, 2007). In addition, the following documents were used as a reference for preparing the company’s GHG inventory:
- The Greenhouse Gas Protocol: the Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard, WRI & WBCSD (2004);
- guides, guidelines and calculation tools of the Brazilian GHG Protocol Program (PBGHGP) of FGV (2020);
- 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories, IPCC (2006);
- Calculation Tools for Estimating Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Pulp and Paper Mills, NCASI (2005).
In accordance with the principles for preparing GHG inventories, whenever possible, measurement data and emission factors closer to the local reality were used.
Suzano’s Energy indirect (Scope 2) GHG emissions from energy acquisition occur due to the purchase of electricity from the National Interconnected System. These emissions are more representative in industrial units, especially for paper machines, which require a continuous supply of electricity.
