At Suzano, the process of registering and approving new suppliers considers their scope of operation to define the criteria by which they will be analyzed. In this sense, suppliers screened using environmental criteria are those whose activities are directly related to issues of this nature and have gone through the company’s registration and approval process.
In 2020, 100% of the new suppliers registered by Suzano whose scope of operation involves environmental aspects – i.e., 195 suppliers – were screened using these criteria. This represents approximately 14% of the total number of new suppliers registered by the company in the reporting period.
