      "Responsible management of forests and plantations can become a relevant solution to address the urgent challenges of climate change. First, trees are the greatest biological infrastructures on the planet and the best capturers of CO2. Second, responsible management of plantations reduces the pressure on natural forests, considering that deforestation and degradation of these forests accounts for 20% of global CO2 emissions. [...] The company’s commitment to non-conversion of native forests and its restoration program will allow conservation areas to increase in the future, benefiting among others, threatened species, areas that are essential for biodiversity or very important to communities and interested parties."
