About Us

The world’s leading producer of market hardwood pulp, the company has an annual production capacity of 5.3 million tons of market pulp, from mills located in Aracruz (Espírito Santo), Jacareí (São Paulo) and Três Lagoas (Mato Grosso do Sul), as well as from the Veracel joint-venture with Stora Enso, in Eunápolis (Bahia).

In May 2015, Fibria announced the expansion of its mill in Três Lagoas (Horizonte 2 project), raising its production capacity from the new line start-up operation in the third quarter of 2017. As a result, Fibria's pulp production capacity increased from 5.3 million tons to 7.25 million tons per year.

In 2015, Fibria and Klabin S.A. concluded a contract for the purchase of hardwood pulp produced at the Klabin plant in the state of Paraná, and operation started in 2016. The agreement establishes a commitment of acquisition by Fibria of a volume of 900 thousand tons per year, for exclusive sale on the global market. The agreement between Fibria and Klabin reflects the innovative vision of the two companies and creates a new market benchmark. Therefore,  after the Horizonte 2 start-up, Fibria's commercialization capacity will be 8.15 million tons per year

Forest Base

The company has 1.092 million hectares of forest, in the six states of Espírito Santo, Bahia, Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Mato Grosso do Sul and Rio de Janeiro. Of that total, 656,000 hectares are planted forests, 374,000 hectares are preserved areas for environmental conservation and 61,000 hectares are for other uses.

Logistics and Commercialization

Around 90% of the pulp produced by Fibria is exported to more than 40 countries, with the main markets being Europe and Asia. Fibria operates in Porto Santos and Portocel. We own 51% of Portocel, the largest port in Latin America specializing in pulp handling. The distribution of pulp to our customers is carried out through several terminals strategically located in order to guarantee efficiency in global logistics.

The purpose for which Fibria’s pulp is mainly used is the production of tissue papers (48%), print and write (34%) and special papers (17%). Our three largest clients represent 49% of our sales, being market leaders in the segments in which they operate. 

 

People

Our workforce brings together nearly 17 thousand professionals, with approximately 4 thousand employees and 13 thousand third parties.

Fibria's Climate Survey uses a Gallup Q12 methodology that assesses the level of engagement of professionals. Having engaged employees means having people working with a sense of "ownership" and motivated to seek better results.

The benchmark indicates that 4.5 professionals are required for 1 actively engaged professional (4.5: 1). From 2014 to here, there was a significant evolution: we jumped from 3.3: 1 to 6.1: 1 engagement.

The favorable rate has also grown over the past two years, from 72% to 79%.
