ESG Viewpoint: Deforestation in Brazil

  • Brazil’s natural habitats are valuable on a global scale – the country contains 15-20% of the world’s biological diversity and 60% of the Amazon rainforest
  • Deforestation increased under President Bolsonaro with cattle farming, soy production and gold mining the key drivers.  President Lula has pledged to halt deforestation
  • We believe deforestation in Brazil poses material risks to investors, explore why it matters and discuss changes in the regulatory backdrop
  • In Brazil we engaged with policy makers and a range of companies operating in a range of industries linked to deforestation together with businesses with related value chains
