    Additional information:

    In 2020, Suzano had a reduction of 28% in the generation of hazardous waste compared with 2019. In the period, specific generation of hazardous waste dropped from 0.13 kg/t in 2019 to 0.09 kg/t, achieving its internal goal of recording specific generation equal to or below 0.12 kg/t.

    Generation of non-hazardous industrial solid waste increased 6% in the same period. This result was obtained despite the 9.9% increase in production in the same period, mainly concentrated in the Imperatriz, Mucuri and Aracruz Units.

    Suzano’s management of this topic, which was revised from the launch of the Long Term Goal in 2019, led to investments of R$72 million and installation of the Waste Treatment Centers at the Três Lagoas Units (in operation) and Imperatriz (initial operation scheduled for the 1Q21.

    In 2020, the Limeira Unit stood out by maintaining a minimum level of solid industrial waste sent to landfills. Throughout 2020, the Jacareí Unit also reached the same result, reflected in the consolidated annual number of 1.1 kg/t.

    Some of the initiatives that contributed to this result are described in indicator “Management of solid waste in industrial operations”.
