Our forestry assets are distributed across eight states (São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Bahia, Espírito Santo, Maranhão, Piauí, Tocantins and Pará), spread over more than 1 million hectares, including 522,000 hectares of planted area and 463,000 hectares of preservation areas. Suzano also operate in the biotechnology industry through FuturaGene, the first company in the world to obtain approval for the commercial use of genetically modified eucalyptus. Research in this new technology started in 2001 and, in 2015, its use was approved by Brazil’s National Biosafety Technical Commission (CTNBio). Productivity gains compared to conventional eucalyptus could be to 20%.
