The year 2020 was marked by a 3.85% increase in total production (sum of the total production of pulp, paper and consumer goods) and Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions 1.57% higher than in 2019. Because of the industrial model of pulp production, in which waste is used to generate energy, the increase in production does not generate a directly proportional increase in emissions because energy generation based on biomass and black liquor (renewable fuel/process by-product) is greater the higher the production, reducing the need for fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas. In forestry and logistics operations, Suzano employed a number of initiatives to optimize and maximize efficiency. In the administrative processes, because of Covid-19, with many of our employees working from home and with significantly reduced travel, there were reductions in emissions.
