Suzano’s indirect emissions from the acquisition of energy (scope 2) result from the purchase of electricity from the National Interconnected System (SIN), Brazil’s electricity production and transmission system. These emissions are more representative in industrial units, mainly for paper machines, which require a continuous supply of electricity. Since Suzano self-generates a large portion of its energy consumption, Scope 2 emissions are not very representative in the global inventory.
Suzano’s reduction of Scope 2 emissions in 2020 followed the 17.73% reduction in the average emission factor for electricity supplied in the National Interconnected System provided by the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MCTIC).*
