About The Navigator Company
The Navigator Company is an integrated forest producer, whose end products are pulp & paper, tissue and energy. Its operations are based at modern, large scale industrial units that use state-of the-art technology and are a benchmark for quality in the sector.
The Navigator Company produces pulp and paper from forests which are planted exclusively for this purpose. Every year, 12 million young trees start their lives in our nurseries. These nurseries are the largest in Europe, and produce 135 different species of trees and bushes, most of which are not economically viable but are funded by Navigator in order to maintain diversity and ensure that the species are continued.
In 2017, for example, the forests under The Navigator Company's management in Portugal represented a carbon stock equivalent to 5.4 million tons of CO2, excluding carbon retained in the soil.
The Navigator Company has made a formal commitment to achieving carbon neutrality in 2035, 15 years ahead of the targets set by the European Union and Portugal. This makes it the first Portuguese company, and one of the first in the world, to set itself this ambitious goal.
