    1. In 2020, the Suzano Unit started to monitor total phosphorus. Routine measurements are also planned for Rio Verde. Units with values not disclosed (n/d) did not perform monitoring in the period.

    Additional information:

    In 2020, the phosphorus balance in effluents increase by 4% compared with 2019. This reflects the 9.9% increase in production in the same period, mainly concentrated in the Imperatriz, Mucuri and Aracruz Units.

    In specific terms (kg of phosphorus solids per ton of product), Suzano registered a reduction of 6% compared with 2019. These results are in the baseline range of the international standards set out by the IPPC (Integrated Pollution, Prevention and Control 2015 – European Commission), which establishes as best performance results between 0.01 and 0.03 kg/t.

    The result obtained by Suzano is also within the European Ecolabel reference, a seal of environmental excellence awarded to products and services that meet high environmental standards throughout its life cycle.
