Low Carbon
and Regenerative Agriculture

In a commitment to decarbonization by 2035, AMAGGI invests in actions to improve its operations with efficiency and productivity gains. To this end, we engage in low-carbon agriculture initiatives with regenerative agriculture; no-till; crop-livestock integration and soil quality control. In addition, the activities expansion only takes place on degraded or already opened areas.

The expansion of renewable energy sources. investment in technology and innovation; efficient use of inputs, choice of seeds and cultivars according to productivity, tolerance and resistance to pests are other initiatives of the company.

Carbon NetZERO

In 2021, AMAGGI joined the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative, through the Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign, and with that it is now also part of the global Race to Zero movement.

The commitment is to achieve zero emissions by 2050 (NetZero emissions), through the decarbonization and neutralization of any residual emissions, especially from regenerative agriculture.

Regenerative agriculture encompasses different practices to actively improve the quality of soil, water, biodiversity and carbon cycles.

And to reach the decarbonization goal by 2035, AMAGGI constantly invests in innovations, good practices and technologies for a more efficient operation, such as:

  • Renewable energy: Expand the production of renewable energy and zero greenhouse gas emissions. Currently, small hydroelectric plants and solar panels produce much more energy than the entire AMAGGI consumes.
  • Meteorological Radar for Agriculture: Investment in innovative processes, such as monitoring and analyzing the micro-climate in real time, through the first meteorological radar dedicated to agriculture in the state. The instrument aims to assist in day-to-day decision-making about agricultural operations, always subject to climatic variations.
  • Telemeclima: 24/7 Production monitoring of planting areas, supported by precision agriculture tools. As a result of the technologies applied in the field, the farms gain not only in productivity and efficiency, but in lower use of inputs and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Biological Control: We invest in research and development of biological control of pests and diseases. As a result, we have more sustainable agriculture, with less use of chemical pesticides. The company is currently investing in a Bio-defensive plant.
  • No-tillage: A type of management that preserves the soil and its beneficial microorganisms. It also improves soil fertility by retaining organic matter, prevents erosion and reduces CO₂ emissions.
  • Operations in different modes: We operate in different modes of transport (road, rail and waterway) in order to make the flow of grains and fibers increasingly efficient and sustainable. Highlight for river navigation in the Northwest Export Corridor. In it, 1,100 kilometers are covered by barges, where each one represents the load of approximately 45 trucks.

Greenhouse Gas
Emissions Management

We have one of the most comprehensive inventories of corporate greenhouse gas emissions and removals in the agricultural sector. We make this information transparent through the Public Emissions Registry of the GHG Protocol Brazilian Program.

Carbon Footprint from soy, corn and cotton produced on our farms

We calculate the carbon footprint of soy, corn and cotton from the extraction of raw materials by third-party companies through to delivery to the customer at their destination, including storage and processing.

With this study, we came to understand and ensure that our products have a lower carbon intensity, on average, when compared to other competing markets. This is due to the use of good agricultural practices, energy efficiency projects and the use of raw materials.

EU RED Soy and Corn: Carbon Footprint of products in the AMAGGI chain

We promote EU RED – Renewable Energy Directive – socio-environmental certifications for soy and corn to comply with the European Biofuels Directive, which guarantees a product with lower carbon intensity.

Carbon Stock

The carbon stock has its origin in the removal and fixation of CO₂ from the atmosphere in the form of biomass stored in trees and their roots. It is also incorporated over time into soils.

Therefore, it is important to maintain forested areas and zero deforestation commitments, as well as use good soil management practices, preventing stored carbon from returning to the atmosphere.

Carbon Credits Project

The Jesuíta Energia S.A, a company controlled by AMAGGI S.A, makes public the PCH Jesuíta Carbon Credits project, located in the municipalities of Sapezal-MT and Campos de Júlio-MT. The objective is to provide transparency from official institutes, entities and citizens located in the areas where it is implemented.

Amaggi Regenera is the connection between agriculture and nature


Our commitment is to a low-carbon agricultural system which restores soil health and biodiversity while nurturing an entire generation of farmers into a new way to produce.

AMAGGI Regenera is an initiative that strengthens our commitment to a low-carbon agricultural system which restores soil health and biodiversity and can be applied to large-scale commodity production. Furthermore, it encourages a generation of farmers into a new way to produce.

Amaggi Regenera central pillars

The program operates with soil, biodiversity and people as central pillars and economic resilience as transversal.

Soil restoration must be thought of as a constant process, which is why AMAGGI encourages practices such as as no-tillage with cover crops, precision agriculture and the responsible use of water and biopesticides, among other actions.

For biodiversity, AMAGGI contributes through biological disease control, integrated pest management, conservation and restoration of native vegetation. These efforts facilitate the transport of living beings and microorganisms within cultivated areas.

Regarding people, these are the main drivers of the transition to regenerative agriculture. For this reason, Amaggi Regenera aims to disseminate knowledge and influence rural producers and family farmers so that they will also be able to cooperate for the perpetuity of the soil and life.

Addressing Deforestation
And Traceability

AMAGGI is committed to having a grain supply chain 100% monitored and tracked, free from deforestation and conversion of native vegetation (Deforestation and Conversion Free – DCF) for agricultural production by 2025, considering all biomes, countries and regions where it is present.

Towards a of deforestation and conversion of native vegetation free chain

In 2017, together with the launch of its Global Sustainability Positioning, AMAGGI also published its commitment to fighting deforestation named “Towards a deforestation and conversion of native vegetation free chain”.

This commitment was updated in 2021 and covers agricultural production, origination and financing of grain production, considering direct, intermediary and indirect suppliers.

AMAGGI is also committed to maintaining all sectoral agreements to which it is a signatory for the protection of forests and native vegetation, namely the Soy Moratorium and the Pará Green Grain Protocol, as well as supporting the improvement of its processes.

Chain Traceability

To achieve the commitment to have 100% of the grain chain free from deforestation and conversion of native vegetation by 2025, ensuring transparency and traceability of the grain chain is one of the most important pillars for AMAGGI. To this end, we invest in tools that allow us to have a deep understanding of all the supply links.


In 2016, we invested in technology and innovation to monitor our grain chain and launched the ORIGINAR Platform (Originate). Now with a new version 2.0 — the geo-spatial analysis tool, developed exclusively for the company, uses an updated satellite image basis.

The tool enables the crossing of data from the farms of grain suppliers and other inputs, such as biomass, with AMAGGI’s Socio-environmental Criteria. This enables other territorial intelligence analyses, such as land use and monitoring of deforestation, thus ensuring greater traceability of the chain.

Through this tool, we are able to assess whether the suppliers in our grain chain are meeting AMAGGI’s socio-environmental criteria.

We do not sell grains from productive areas that are in:

  • Embargoes from IBAMA and state environmental agencies;
  • Indigenous lands and integral protection conservation units;
  • Areas deforested after 2008 in the Amazon Biome that do not comply with the Soy Moratorium;
  • Areas that do not comply with the Pará Green Grain Protocol;
  • The Slave Labor Dirty List
