Scope 3 emissions had a slight increase in 2020. Emissions from transportation and distribution (both of inputs and finished products) are the most representative among Suzano’s other indirect (Scope 3) emissions.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with a large portion of employees working from home, there was a reduction in emissions from employee commuting, air travel, and transportation of purchased goods and services.
Regarding emissions from transportation and distribution specifically, there was an increase to a lesser extent in relation to the increase in the distribution of products. This was possible because of shipment optimization.
Calculations for rail transport were revised to use the factor tCO₂e/ton.km transported. International transportation and distribution calculations have been adjusted and refined.
