Wood Availability Management

In an integrated production chain, wood used to produce pulp for manufacturing paper and packaging, or sold directly to the market, comes from planted forests of pine and eucalyptus. Klabin’s forests have one of the world’s highest productivity rates and are located in areas close to the factories, lending a great competitive advantage to its operations. The company maintains 43% of its forests for the preservation and maintenance of biodiversity.

In addition to its own wood, the company invests in developing producers in the region through the Plant with Klabin program, witch develops companies providing forestry and harvesting services, and contributes to economic diversification for the producer within its property.

In 2020, Klabin enhanced its supply planning processes with the concepts of S&OP (Sales and Operation Planning), S&OE (Sales and Operation Execution) and Control Tower (a concept that seeks to provide logistical intelligence and integration). These initiatives made planning more collaborative, with more effective participation of all forestry areas involved, in addition to strategic focal points of the manufacturing units, increasing the predictability and accuracy of plans in relation to financial and sustainability indicators, also improving the budget’s adherence to the company’s strategic guidelines and achieving greater adaptability of the forest raw material for industrial processes and products.

In 2021, 17% of the executive directors currently have a variable compensation tied to Wood availability performance. Apart from them, 31 leaders (from consultants to managers, which represent 4% of them) also managed to develop variable compensation tied to the company’s specific goals.
