Sustainability Systemic Evaluation Commission (CASS)
CASS is formed by a multidisciplinary internal team of managers from various departments of the company and serves as a forum for analyzing strategic, transversal, controversial, recurring and medium- and long-term topics.
The group assesses issues systemically, dynamically and on an integrated basis, seeking to capture synergies in the projects developed by areas to act as a facilitator in the integration and implementation of the company’s sustainability strategy.
Local Relationship Commission (CRL)
Permanent dialogue with local communities is a fundamental part of Fibria’s sustainability strategy. Part of this effort is conducted by the Local Relationship Commission (CRL), which is a component of the company’s governance model that is present at all units. Its duties include aligning the community relations strategy with the industrial and forestry units, recommending and monitoring projects and programs for the Annual Socioenvironmental Investment Plan and monitoring key social issues and conflicts in the operational area of each unit.
