10/07/2014Celulose Irani publishes its 8th Sustainability Report
Sao Paulo, July 2014-In presenting its eighth Sustainability Report, Celulose Irani opted for publishing a single edition that integrates the values cultivated in the business, processes, products and services.
Last year was marked by significant progress in environmental management in the company´s manufacturing units. In this scenario, 2013 was highlighted by the continuous improvement of the indicators through the completion of the first stage of the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), which enabled a study to better understand the impacts of what was generated and identify reduction opportunities. The second phase will be held in 2014 and it will enable a more complete assessment of the whole Celulose Irani production chain.
Behind all these numbers, we see much more than isolated indicators or accountability. We see the potential to continue to grow with value bearing in mind the commitment to sustainability and positive impacts for all of those that are directly or indirectly involved in our processes", said Pericles Pereira Druck, CEO of IRANI.
Also noteworthy is the recognition for measures designed to reduce the social and environmental impacts. In evidence are the obtaining of the ISO 14001:2004 Certification by the Packaging SP Unit and the recommendation for FSC certification for the Chain of Custody for the Resins Unit RS (IRANI was the first rosin-resin and turpentine producer in the world to receive this recommendation). Both these acknowledgments demonstrate the IRANI commitment with practices focused on sustainability. It is also worth noting the revalidation of the UN Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Co-generation Plant for another seven years as well as the maintenance of the Wastewater Treatment Plant CDM.
According to the document, annual targets for the growth of indicators were achieved, highlighting the increase in energy efficiency, water consumption, reduction in the amount of effluents, the transfer of waste to the landfill and an increase the percentage of recycled fiber (60% to 65%).
In 2013, Celulose Irani recorded R$ 182,542.38 in investments in social projects that totaled actions directed at the communities around the manufacturing and forestry units. Investments in training and development amounted to R$ 1,406,966.16, and educational incentives through subsidies accounted for R$ 763,436.38.
According to the report, last year IRANI set-out and matured and The IRANI 2020 Project, a new set of investments in competitiveness, innovation and growth. "We are ready for another expansion cycle, in the search phase for the appropriate funding and we are waiting for the best time for the decision", said Pericles Druck. IRANI 2020 includes the entire production chain, from the forest to the production of corrugated cardboard packaging.
The document was prepared in accordance with the new generation of international guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the G4, and adopts the guidelines for a comprehensive account in an effort to consolidate the IRANI sustainability actions.
