Climate Lobbying Overview: Suzano appears to have very limited engagement with climate change policy, with comments broadly limited to its own operations. However, the company appears supportive of biofuels in the energy mix.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: Top-line communications from Suzano on climate change are limited, and predominantly relate to the company’s own operations. On its “2020 Indicators Center” on its corporate website, published in 2020, Suzano quoted the need to reduce GHG emissions in order to limit warming to 1.5°C in line with the IPCC and the Paris Agreement. InfluenceMap was unable to find positions on the need for climate policy and regulation.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: On its corporate website, Suzano does not appear to have disclosed positions on climate policy. Whilst Suzano is implementing renewable energy and energy efficiency policy within its own operations, the company appears to have limited transparent engagement with specific climate-related regulations.

Positioning on Energy Transition: Suzano has limited engagement on the energy transition, but appears to support the role of biofuels in the energy mix. In its CDP response in 2021, Suzano indicated that it supports adding biomass to the energy mix in Brazil, disclosing that it worked to affect this through a workshop with the Ministry of Energy via an industry association.

Industry Association Governance: Suzano has disclosed a list of memberships to industry associations on its corporate website. However, the company does not detail the positions of these groups on climate change nor how it is influencing these positions. Suzano has not published a review of alignment with its industry associations on climate policy. Suzano does not appear to hold memberships to any industry associations currently covered by InfluenceMap’s database.

Additional Note: Suzano is headquartered in Brazil, where InfluenceMap’s LobbyMap platform can currently only make a provisional assessment of corporate climate policy engagement, due to limited capability to access publicly available data on this issue. As it is possible that InfluenceMap is not yet able to fully capture evidence of Suzano's climate policy engagement activities, these scores should be considered provisional at this time.

InfluenceMap's analysis of corporate policy engagement covers a range of climate-motivated policy streams, which is being expanded continually as national policy developments occur. In 2022, InfluenceMap will introduce coverage of corporate engagement with climate policy related to land use and circular economy issues. As Suzano operates in sectors where such policy issues are highly significant, it is likely that such future evolutions of InfluenceMap's system will impact Suzano's climate change policy engagement scores in the future.

Strength of Relationship

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
