In the past, wood theft was one of the main impacts for Suzano’s business, creating tensions with some of the communities located in our regions of operation. In 2009 alone, wood theft was responsible for the loss of more than 650,000 cubic meters of wood (an amount exceeding R$50 million). In 2020, this total was 12,429 cubic meters. This significant reduction indicates the success of the company’s social strategy in recent years, seeking to reduce land pressure, establish dialogue with communities and offer opportunities to generate income and work in the regions where we operate.
