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.


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.


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.


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 Fuel Terminal, in Paulínia, also in the state of São Paulo, a joint venture 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.


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.


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.




We question the limits and challenge ourselves. We are entrepreneurs. We make things happen with ethics and seriousness.


For us, a deal is a deal. We deliver on our word. We assume risks by taking into account short- and long-term impacts of our decisions and actions.


We have a sense of urgency, but we deliberate before acting. We quickly respond to the needs of the market and clients, through flexible and efficient processes.


We value meritocracy and high performance. We promote dialogue and learning. We invest in the development of people and recognize their ideas and contributions.


We operate as a network. We work in an integrated and global manner. We share opinions, knowledge, and experience in our quest to develop businesses and people.


In addition to having in place a business model that is considered unique in the sugar and ethanol industry, Copersucar structured a transparent corporate governance model that incorporates best market practices recommended by the Brazilian Institute of Corporate Governance (IBGC), as well as the Novo Mercado Corporate Governance Equity Index (IGC-NM) compiled by BM&FBOVESPA – a capitals market listing for trading of shares issued by companies that voluntarily commit to adopting corporate governance practices, in addition to those required by law.

Copersucar believes that ethics is an indispensable value for the business environment and a fundamental condition for sustainable growth of the company and of its partners. 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.

Ethics Channel

Any person can report situations considered unethical, both in internal and external relations. The information may be submitted either in Portuguese or in English. The person reporting may choose to identify him/herself, with total confidentiality, or opt for anonymity.


Copersucar’s production chain starts in the 33 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.

The Copersucar Sugar Terminal (TAC), located in the Port of Santos (SP), was inaugurated in 1998 and is a strategic point for the company’s export activities. In 2013, it was rebuilt and its capacity was expanded. With the creation of Alvean, there was an increase in handling given the export of sugar from non-partner mills. Cargo handling was also diversified, with soy and corn shipments, allowing for greater use of terminal capacity and the achievement of the operational goal.

Static storage capacity: 300,000 tons of sugar in bulk.
Nominal loading capacity: 10 million tons (5,400 tons/hour).
Greater receiving and unloading efficiency: 36,000 tons/day
Ship loading speed: 60,000 tons/day
Handling large vessels: over 70,000 tons
Greater use of rail transport: Estimated elimination of 100,000 truck hauls per year.

The multimodal terminal (road and rail) began operating in 2010 and focuses its activities on transshipment operations: sugar is transported by road to the terminal and is then loaded on trains to the Copersucar Sugar Terminal (TAC) in the Port of Santos (SP). Since its inauguration, the unit has received investments that have increased annual sugar handling capacity.

Storage capacity: 70,000 tons
Handling capacity: 1.5 million tons of sugar per year
