The multisectoral movement is made up of more than 300 organizations and aims to articulate and facilitate actions to promote the harmonious, inclusive and sustainable use of land in the country
Bracell became part of the Brazil Climate, Forests and Agriculture Coalition. The formalization took place in December and by joining, the company is committed to contributing to the promotion of a low-carbon, sustainable and inclusive economy in Brazil.
The Brazil Climate, Forests and Agriculture Coalition is a multisectoral movement that aims to articulate and facilitate actions to promote the harmonious, inclusive and sustainable use of land in the country, based on scientific knowledge and the ability to listen and articulate to establish alliances, be they national or international, in order to facilitate the transition to the new economy. The movement is made up of more than 300 organizations, including agribusiness entities, companies and business associations, civil society organizations, the financial sector and academia, which unites different voices in favor of Brazil’s leadership in a new low-carbon, competitive, responsible and inclusive economy.
“We encourage and value all movements that favor sustainable development. Bracell is a company that was born in the rhythm of sustainability and has consistent and innovative actions that ensure a better future for our country. Being part of the Coalition is very important to us, as we are always looking for dialogue, the exchange of experiences and knowledge, so that we can continuously improve our practices. In addition, contributing to the formulation of public information and participating in advocacy with the decision-making spheres in the country”, clarifies João Augusti, Environment and Certifications Manager at Bracell.
Bracell has the ESG journey as one of its main premises and understands that its actions can only be considered successful if they contemplate not only its interests, but also being positive for the community, the country, the climate and customers. The company, which owns the largest and greenest dissolving pulp mill in the world, located in Lençóis Paulista, São Paulo, announced this year an unprecedented and innovative initiative to support the protection of biodiversity: the “One-For-One Commitment”. Bracell is committed to the conservation of 1 hectare of native vegetation for every 1 hectare of eucalyptus planted and the objective is to reach 100% of the target by 2025.
“The Coalition is currently one of the most diverse and important groups in the sustainable development debate in our country. Bracell’s membership of the Coalition makes us stronger and gives us the opportunity to go beyond our value chain, participating in the construction of ideas with other sectors, companies and organizations”, emphasizes Márcio Nappo, Vice President of Communication and Sustainability at Bracell.
In 2018, the Brazil Coalition restructured its governance and created four Forums to think about the long-term objectives of the movement related to Agriculture and Forestry, Native Forest, Deforestation and Public Policies and Economic Instruments. These four major themes are the pillars of “2030-2050 Vision: The Future of Forests and Agriculture in Brazil”, a publication that brings the main objectives that the members of the movement dream of and work to see achieved in the near future.
For proposals to Brazil from 2023 onwards, the Brazil Coalition defends three important pillars: economic development without deforestation, job and income generation, food production and the fight against hunger.
