39% of Suzano’s debt linked to social and environmental commitments

Suzano, the world's leading eucalyptus pulp and paper producer and a global benchmark in the manufacture of bioproducts developed from eucalyptus, announces the completion of a new seven-year (2028) US$500 million Sustainability-Linked Bond (SLB) linked to social and environmental targets. The capital raising received high levels of investor interest, attracting USD 3.4bn in demand - 6.8x oversubscribed.

2021 06 28 093020The targets have clear links to Suzano’s Environmental, Social and Governance commitments around diversity & inclusion (D&I), as well as its continued focus on conservation and promoting biodiversity.

Specifically, Suzano is dedicated to:

  • Increasing the representative of women in leadership positions in the Company to 30% by the end of 2025 (16% of women were in leadership positions in 2019), and
  • Decreasing the intensity of water captured in industrial operations by 12.4% to 26.1 m3/ton produced or less by the end of 2026 (from 29.8 m³/t in 2018).  

Julio Ramundo, Director of Corporate Finance at Suzano, commented: “We are delighted with the outcome of this new issuance. Once again, we received high investor demand, driven by ongoing investor appetite for climate-conscious capital opportunities. That has translated into reduced cost of capital for Suzano as the 2028 transaction resulted in the lowest yield for a Brazilian corporation for the seven-year term.

“ESG practices have been an inherent part of Suzano's DNA and daily operations for many years. This latest transaction underlines Suzano’s commitment to making its capital structure as responsible and sustainable as possible. 39% of Suzano’s debt is now issued through Sustainability Linked Bonds or other green finance products compared to 9% two years ago.

“That said, Suzano recognizes that its ESG journey is far from complete and is committed to continuously reviewing and advancing its position and levels of transparency, which is driven by having clear goals”.

This new seven-year (2028) bond follows the completion of a US$1 billion Sustainability-Linked Bond; it makes use of similar targets as the ten-year transaction completed in June 2021 which received high investor demand at >4.5x the initial planned issuance of US$750 million. The bond was the first SLB of its kind in Latin America that includes a D&I target, with bondholders entitled to receive a higher amount of interest if Suzano fails to meet its targets.

Since 2020, Suzano has raised approximately US$2.75 billion in Sustainability Linked Bonds, making Suzano one of the leading corporations in this field. In September 2020, Suzano became only the second company globally to link its public commitments on ESG to the company's debt management by launching its first Sustainability-Linked Bond. This was the first by any Latin American company and in the pulp and paper sector. The bond is linked to the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 15% by 2030 and raised a total of US$1.25 billion in the international market (US$750 million in September 2020 and a further US$500 million in November 2020).

These capital raisings underline Suzano’s leading position as an agent of change in the combined development of innovative and sustainable solutions contributing to tackle society’s greatest challenges through its business. In addition, this transaction highlights Suzano’s commitment to making its capital structure as sustainable and green as possible. After this issuance, 39% of Suzano’s debt is issued through Sustainability Linked Bonds or other green finance products compared to 9% at the end of 2019.

The two Sustainability-Linked Bond goals are part of Suzano’s 14 long-term public goals, called the ‘Commitment to Renew Life’. These goals can be viewed at: https://centraldeindicadores.suzano.com.br/en/long-term-goals2/

How can manufacturers significantly improve product quality and process runnability in paper production and converting? This is exactly the question German manufacturer of specialized testing technology, emtec Electronic, addresses at booth 163 at the MIAC 2021 convention in Lucca, Italy from October 13-15.

Leipzig, Germany, 13.09.2021 – After MIAC 2020 was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, technicians of paper mills and converting sites worldwide once again get the opportunity to update their professional knowledge and experience the charm of Tuscany for three days at the MIAC Exhibition in Lucca, Italy. This year, 250 international exhibitors will present new technologies, machinery, and cutting-edge technical solutions for paper and board production and converting to visitors on-site at the Lucca Exhibition Centre.

Visitors to the convention can visit emtec Electronic at Booth 163 to discover more about emtec’s devices, all of which are self-developed and unique on the market. The assortment includes the device that launched the company, the PDA Penetration Dynamics Analyzer, which measures liquid penetration to predict the gluing, printing, and coating behavior of paper and board.

One of emtec’s most recent devices, the ACA Ash Content Analyzer, will be on display at the event. The ACA allows for a quick and reliable determination of the composition of fillers and fines within a sample without destroying the sample. This process leads to an immense time-saving compared to traditional combustion methods.

2021 09 13 205645

In addition, the CAS touch! and FPA touch! will be on location and available for demonstrations. The latter two are improved and more easily portable versions of the original one-of-a-kind testing technology, the Charge Analyzing System and Fiber Potential Analyzer.

Using standard titration techniques, the CAS touch! technology allows technicians to measure the cationic/anionic and acid/base demands of water-based charge systems, easily determine isoelectric and flocculation points of a sample and examine the correlation between pH, titrant demand and streaming potential. The FPA touch! enables the correct dosage of chemically charged additives by providing accurate information regarding the charge of fibers and fillers in a sample based on proven methods of Zeta Potential measurement.

One emtec device not on display due to its size but with video and informational material readily available is the FPO, the Fiber Potential Analyzer Online, which has the added benefit of being connected directly to the process and is so able to constantly monitor the fiber charge, allowing for immediate changes to be made if necessary.

“We’re excited to participate in the MIAC event again this year after last year’s hiatus, and are looking forward to lively discussions and demonstrations with visitors, as well as meeting up with our Italian representatives once more,” says Alexander Gruener, Global Marketing and Business Development Manager for emtec.

Visitors are welcome to stop by the emtec Booth 163 to view the entire emtec palette, exchange ideas, ask questions, see a demonstration of the devices, get their own samples tested onsite, or simply clink glasses with the representatives.

The Kemi bioproduct mill project of Metsä Fibre, part of Metsä Group, is progressing according to plan and the mill’s foundation stone was laid today, 13 September 2021.

The foundation stone was laid to the area of fibre line of the new mill by Ismo Nousiainen, CEO of Metsä Fibre, Jari-Pekka Johansson, Project Director of the Kemi bioproduct mill project, and Mika Vuoti, the on-site contact person. To ensure safety in terms of the coronavirus, the foundation stone was laid without the presence of guests.

Totalling EUR 1.6 billion, the investment in Metsä Group’s Kemi bioproduct mill is the largest in the history of the Finnish forest industry. Through its direct value chain, the new bioproduct mill will employ around 2,500 people in Finland once it is completed. This translates into some 1,500 more than the employment effect of the current Kemi pulp mill. The bioproduct mill project has a high degree of Finnish origin, approximately 70 per cent.

2021 09 13 204149

“The impact of this large-scale industrial investment is significant. The Kemi bioproduct mill will increase Finland’s annual exports by around EUR 0.5 billion and its annual positive income effect through the value of the wood raw material and the purchasing of Finnish labour is likewise roughly EUR 0.5 billion,” says Ismo Nousiainen, CEO of Metsä Fibre.

During the construction phase, the bioproduct mill’s employment effect will be approximately 10,000 person-years, more than half of which will be seen in Kemi. The total number of employees working during the construction phase is estimated to be about 15,000.

“We are proceeding purposefully towards the start-up of the new mill in the third quarter of 2023. At the moment, the project is focused on earthworks and this autumn, we will be moving on to the first equipment installations. Some 450 people are currently working on the site,” says Jari-Pekka Johansson, Project Director.

Operating entirely without fossil fuels, the Kemi bioproduct mill will produce annually some 1.5 million tonnes of softwood and hardwood pulp, as well as many other bioproducts. It will also produce 2.0 TWh of renewable energy a year, which is equal to approximately 2.5% of Finland’s total annual electricity production.

Progress on the bioproduct mill’s construction site can be followed via real-time webcams at www.metsafibre.com/webcamskemi.
