Foreword

Fibria Celulose S.A. is pleased to present its Sustainability Report 2009. Although the company’s activities formally commenced on September 1st, this publication covers the full results, as from January 1st, of the two companies, Votorantim Celulose e Papel S.A. (VCP) and Aracruz Celulose S.A., whose merger formed Fibria.

The economic and financial data for the fiscal year ended on December 31, 2009 have been consolidated. As regards the socioenvironmental performance, the historical data presented refers to the original two companies, as indicated, in order to ensure the traceability of the information and provide the reader with a clearer picture of the achievements and challenges of the new organization.

Right from the start, as spelled out in its mission, vision and values, Fibria has assumed a commitment to the best practices in corporate governance and socio-environmental responsibility. The company realizes that, as the global leader in a business that is based on renewable forest resources, it has the responsibility to set an example and maintain a high standard of conduct.

We at Fibria know that the pace and complexity of the changes – climatic, geopolitical and social – taking place, which have intensified in recent years, have made the challenge even greater, and that, on our own, we will be unable to attain our goal. Hence, this document manifests not only the result of the efforts to bring together the two companies, but also our faith in the process of building the future together with our diverse stakeholders. More than showing the accomplishments to date, we propose to point out, in a transparent fashion, the shortcomings and the improvements that need to be made, so that, with wisdom, we can turn them into learning opportunities and, above all, the determination to get it right.

Working towards this end, we have listened to various people, inside and outside the company, in interviews in which they were invited to suggest topics that, in their opinion, merited greater care and attention in order for our business to be effectively sustainable. During this process, the interviewees repeatedly voiced their expectation that the company would turn in a high economic, social and environmental performance. The observations expressed by these diverse stakeholders during the interviews contain valuable indications of the path we are to follow, and the vote of confidence deposited in us strengthens our determination to accomplish our mission and realize our vision.

We have faith in the strength of dialogue and understanding as a means of achieving our purpose, and we are committed to following this course with transparency and rigor in our rendering of accounts. We trust that Fibria’s Sustainability Report 2009 fully reflects that position, and we invite the reader to inform us as to what extent their expectations were met.

Enjoy the read.

José Luciano Penido
Chairman of the Board of Directors
