MOGI GUACU – Sylvamo (NYSE: SLVM), the world's paper company, is proud to announce the progress of the Mogi Guacu Roots program. The program, which started in 2018, is a partnership between Sylvamo and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to develop a forest restoration program that strengthens water resilience in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest.
To date, the program has partnered with landowners and municipalities to:
Plant 217,000 seedlings
Restore more than 180 hectares
