    Context:

    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.

    Additional information:

    In order to meet legal requirements, certification requirements, and voluntary commitments, in 2010 Suzano launched the Ecological Restoration Program, which covers the Atlantic Forest, Cerrado, and Amazon biomes.

    The program’s activities are grouped into implementation and maintenance/monitoring packages. In general, four restoration methods are used in the units. They are: Planting of native species; Conducting natural regeneration; Control of invasive alien species; and Isolation.

    After the key activities have been performed in the “to be restored” areas, they move into the “in process of restoration” status and are subject to the maintenance and monitoring process.

    Maintenance activities include all activities performed one month after the first month implementation in the area, until it is considered “restored.” The maintenance package includes activities such as fertilization, chemical weed control, hoeing, crowning, ant control, replanting, weed control, and adaptive management (planting densification and enrichment), among others.

    The areas undergoing restoration in the company’s units are at different stages of restoration and, because of the numerous restoration polygons implemented ( even monitored using different methodologies), it’s not possible to present a descriptive status.
