KSDGs – Klabin’s Sustainable Development Goals

The  Klabin Agenda 2030 (KODS) prioritizes ESG themes aligned to the Company’s growth plan. The strategic goals enshrined in the KODS are the responsibility of all Klabin’s areas and units and were designed to create value for all stakeholders (biodiversity, communities, employees, business partners) in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. See progress made in achieving the 23 goals (KODS).

Dependent bird species in the 3 forest units (SP, SC and PR) were considered. The fauna monitoring campaign is conducted annually and 78% to 85% of the identified dependent birds are found (data from the last 10 years, 2011-2020). In 2020, 80% were found, considering the average of the last 5 years.

Klabin and Votorantim Cimentos joined forces to launch the packaging made of 100% hydrodispersible paper, which means that it can be integrated into the process as the concrete is prepared, thus reducing the amount of waste sent to the landfill. Just place the closed bag in the cement mixer, add sand, gravel, water and mix until the package is dispersed and integrated into the final product, maintaining the quality of the concrete.

The concept of changed lives was introduced in 2019 at Klabin Security and refers to significant effects caused by occupational accidents considered very serious and permanent. In 2020, five lives were changed – 1 in a traffic accident and 4 in accidents while blocking dangerous energies*. More information on the Action Plan can be found on the Occupational Health and Safety page..

For this indicator, the report also considers the units acquired in 2020. All units have one of the following strategies: new Effluent Treatment Station; Regional Development Forum; and Caiubi Program. In addition, all industrial units are regularly assessed using the WRI Aqueduct tool to identify water stress that guides the Company in prioritizing territories covered by initiatives related to the goal.

The result of the cycle will change over the years, as Klabin’s expansion plan considers new paper operations, which are hydro-intensive. Additionally, the reported result does not consider the units acquired in 2020 (including 2 recycled paper units). The calculation of specific water consumption refers to the difference between total water withdrawal – total water discharge divided by the Company’s total production.
