Fibria has inventoried its greenhouse gases (GHGs) since 2005. In 2010, it became the first forestry company in the world to integrate carbon management across its supply chain through the Carbon Disclosure Project's Supply Chain programme and participate on the Carbon Efficient Index (ICO2) from the Brazilian stock exchange, BMF&BOVESPA.
Fibria´s work on carbon footprint disclosure has not only provided quantitative results. It has also helped to develop best practices derived from GHG Protocol and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) methodologies.
In its first assessment in 2008, Fibria used the widest boundaries it could identify, from the nurseries where seedlings are produced to the main international ports where Fibria’s pulp is delivered. The company followed a wide understanding of what should be considered direct and indirect emissions. The carbon inventory has become a powerful management tool and has improved dialogue with stakeholders, suppliers and customers. Results so far have motivated the company to develop its influence in the supply chain, expanding carbon management and climate change awareness in small, medium and large companies.
