SAO PAULO, Dec. 14, 2016 (Press Release) -Fibria, a Brazilian forestry company and the world’s leading eucalyptus pulp producer, has received A- rating in the Climate and Forest results of CDP, an international non-profit organization that provides the largest and most comprehensive environmental disclosure system in the world.
“The information compiled by CDP provides tremendous credibility for the industry in the face of global challenges such as climate changes and environmental conservation. The A rating is a recognition of our leadership in this score.

The data reported in 2016 by companies participating in investor-led programs on “Climate Change, Water and Forest” are included in the report prepared in partnership with Gestão Origami presented on December 13 at the CDP Connection 2016 – Natural Capital: the role of each individual.
