But as the deadline approaches, none of the companies and financial institutions assessed in 2018 are on track to eliminate deforestation from its supply chains and portfolios by next year, according to the Global Canopy report. This step lays the groundwork for progress in implementing measures to consolidate sustainable and deforestation-free agricultural chains, whose challenges include working under political conditions, financing for conversion, traceability, market developments and other measures to meet this commitment to the zero forest by 2025. These are the challenges that GGGI is committed to and will continue to work on. In recent years, there has been a considerable increase in commitments to clear zero-deforestation by companies (see more reading on Surge in Zero Deforestation Commitments) and an increasing number of them have a cross-sectional reach covering cattle products. Continued support for certified beef, leather and tallow can foster broad, sustainable and solution-oriented processing for Brazilian cattle products. Most of them are headquartered in industrialized countries, including Nestlé (Switzerland), L`Oréal (France) and PepsiCo (USA), whose governments have had a duty, according to Khalisa, to ensure that domestic demand does not fuel deforestation abroad. The agreements were signed by seven companies in the beef and milk sector: although the virgin forest agreements are an important starting point for the elimination of deforestation in value-added chains, signatory companies need increased internal efforts that allow for conditions, support and instruments to accelerate the implementation of their commitments. The main objective of this technical report is to provide basic information for the Acre for Umweltdienstleistungen (SISA) incentive programme on the livestock intensification sub-program. Here we present a large number of growth scenarios for livestock, which use different herd expansion rates, acreage to increase and economic data, to show the difference in revenue generated by these scenarios. This analysis uses the rate of increase in the federal government`s herd projections as well as a more ambitious projection. The scenarios also take into account four different intensification scenarios that would allow the herd to expand without further deforestation. These data are used in conjunction with economic data (production costs, beef price scenarios and income) to analyze the overall income of Acre cattle farming between 2010 and 2021. While intensification can be cost-effective, it must be linked to public policy and access to credit, so that rising incomes do not become a threat, which could lead to further deforestation.
JAKARTA – According to a report, large companies that have pledged to eliminate deforestation in the tropics by 2020 will not meet the time limit they have imposed on themselves. Today, two-thirds of the clearing of tropical forests is for the land to produce raw materials that are marketed worldwide and end up in our supermarkets in half of the products. Find out how 500 companies, investors and governments could virtually end deforestation and why it`s so urgent. The report indicates that 50 of the companies assessed reported certain activities aimed at implementing zero debenstation obligations for all the raw materials to which they are exposed. „Other companies need to follow the example of these leaders,“ he says. The agreements stress the importance of developing effective strategies for restoring and restoring agricultural ecosystems, while increasing farmers` productivity. In order to develop collaborative solutions and reduce verified wood production to zero in cattle, supply chain players should participate in the Joint Forest Working Group (GRSB-GTPS GTPS).
