Sustainable forest planning and management that support forest productivity, disease and pest control, maintenance of biodiversity, environmental preservation, and the provision of ecosystem services – creating a virtuous cycle.
Conducted since 2017 by Suzano, the project called Nascentes do Mucuri (Mucuri Springs) encourages the protection of the springs of the Mucuri River and its surroundings, thereby promoting the perpetuity of this water resource so valuable for maintaining the ecosystem services in the region, which even has remnants of the Atlantic Rainforest, one of the most diverse biomes on the planet. The river originates in the northeast region of the state of Minas Gerais and discharges in the South of the state of Bahia, extending for 446 kilometers in an area of approximately 15,400 square kilometers and a population of 537,000. The project promotes environmental education and training of local producers to consolidate a culture of preservation in the region.
