Copersucar

Bringing together field and industry, Copersucar is a global trader of sugar and ethanol, with integrated logistics throughout its entire business chain, operating excellence, and sustainable value creation.

ENERGY TO NOURISH AND MOVE LIFE

Seven billion people: each with their needs and desires that imply in a progressive increase in food and energy consumption, generating an increasingly higher pressure on resources that are far from being inexhaustible. Based on this, Copersucar, in line with the precepts set out by COP21, believes that industries based on renewable resources, such as ours, have an instrumental role in building a future where these needs can be sustainably addressed. If we in fact wish to contribute to sustaining life on the planet, we need to research and invest to allow for these scenarios where the so-called alternative energies receive the due importance. Ethanol is one of the answers to this challenge. A ready, competitive, available and effective answer.

The points that should be highlighted in the sugarcane value chain are: the social, economic, and environmental gains enabled by the production and supply of food – including sugar, which plays an instrumental role in nutrition, when consumed in moderation – and clean energy, in the form of biofuels. In the long term, this is certainly one of the paths to ensure a better life for those living on this planet.

THE BUSINESS

Copersucar makes the connection between partner mills and clients, trading sugar and ethanol on a large scale, while conducting the logistics operation, capable of integrating all links of the value chain. This is one of the major differentiators of our business model, considered unique and difficult to be replicated. Its strategy for growth and business continuity is grounded on sustainability management.

STRATEGY IN ACTION

Copersucar continues to invest, with significant progress, in its triple-objective strategy: internationalization, growth and structural gains.

Among the initiatives, Alvean can be highlighted, which has been accelerating global development and expansion of operations. More than an affiliate, the joint venture with Cargill is also a client. Today, Copersucar conducts all logistics for exporting sugar originated in Brazil, which is traded by Alvean.

Copersucar also has controlling shareholding interest in Eco-Energy, the company responsible for approximately 16% of the ethanol market in the United States. By acquiring one of the main ethanol companies in the United States, in 2012, Copersucar became a global leader in the trading of biofuels.

In terms of logistics, Copersucar’s strategy for sugar is supported by investments in multimodal terminals for storage and transportation of sugar in strategic points in the state of São Paulo, such as the ones in Ribeirão Preto and São José do Rio Preto, and in the Copersucar Sugar Terminal, at the Port of Santos, which has the capacity to handle 10 million tons of the product.

For ethanol, the main asset is the Copersucar Ethanol Terminal, in Paulínia, also in the state of São Paulo, integrated to one of main refineries in Brazil and to Logum’s ethanol pipeline. This structure gives Copersucar the largest sugar and ethanol storage capacity in Brazil.

The company also invests in technology, such as the case of CTC – Sugarcane Technology Center, founded by Copersucar in 1969, and transformed into the world’s largest sugarcane biotechnology center, today operating as an independent company.

Copersucar’s strategic position, enabled by these initiatives and partnerships, is a major ally in sustainable growth and competitive advantage to attract new markets and partners. Each of the company’s businesses is governed by the same corporate philosophy, which drives excellence throughout the entire value chain.

Mission

Copersucar’s mission is to generate value through the vertical integration of the sugar and ethanol business chain.

Sustainable value creation based on:

• Logistics capacity;
• Differentiated commercial operations: scale, relevance and reliability; taking positions in the physical and futures markets; risk management; capacity to arbitrate between products, channels and origins;
• Operational excellence.

Vision

To be the leader in the global supply of sugar and ethanol, with a 30% share in domestic sugarcane production.

To be a significant presence in the main world markets and committed to its customers’ success;

Brand recognized as a global player;

Professionals differentiated by their business vision and competencies that drive value creation.

This conduct requires a genuine commitment in order to balance the relationships maintained while performing our professional activities, at all levels.

In order to guide its relationship with employees, clients, suppliers, and other stakeholders, Copersucar developed its Code of Conduct and Ethics in Business and maintains a permanent channel to receive reports of situations that represent violation of ethics.

PARTNER MILLS

Copersucar's production chain starts in the 35 partner mills, belonging to 20 economic groups, and located throughout four states in the Brazilian Mid-South, the main sugarcane region: São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Paraná and Goiás. These mills are responsible for the raw material, sugarcane, and for the production, based on these inputs, of sugar and biofuels. Copersucar and its Partner Mills are autonomous companies that carry out their corporate policies independently.
