Socio-Environmental Certifications and Sustainability Guarantee Programs
All AMAGGI farms are certified in social and environmental protocols that aim to guarantee the responsible production of grains and fibers. In addition, we are one of the leading companies in the volume of certified soy in the main international social and environmental standards, as well as serving the certified corn, cotton and biofuels (EU RED) market
For all its investment in geospatial system and supply chain traceability, AMAGGI started to offer a unique and exclusive Origin Guarantee program capable of meeting the highest market demands.
Named ORIGINS, this proprietary AMAGGI program guarantees a responsible grain origin, free from deforestation and conversion (DCF), traceable and verified by a third party. It also counts on the calculation of forest and native vegetation areas and their respective carbon stock, making it possible to calculate the grain carbon footprint. As a 100% digital solution it is highly scalable.
RTRS – Round Table on Responsible Soy
We were the 1st company in the world certified by the RTRS, a civil society organization that involves the main representatives of the soy value chain on a global scale, from producers, the industry, financial institutions and the consumer market to governments, NGOs and associations. We have been part of the RTRS Executive Committee since 2007 and are part of the Brazil Task Force, a Brazilian group dedicated to promoting and improving the soy market and the certification process in the country.
RTRS guarantees that the certified product complies with legal requirements and that it comes from properties that carry out good business practices, have responsible working conditions and community relations, produce with environmental responsibility, guaranteeing zero deforestation and native vegetation conversion, and having appropriate agricultural practices, which gives traceability to the chain of custody. Currently, a significant portion of the world’s RTRS soybeans is certified by AMAGGI in the EU RED, physical (mass balance) and credit (book and claim) modalities.
The ProTerra Standard seal guarantees that the certified product meets environmental and social requirements, and that it is not genetically modified (GMO). We are currently a member of the Certification and Standard Management Committee.
ProTerra’s certification audits verify that production is carried out in a sustainable manner, with zero deforestation and native vegetation conversion, respecting human rights and legislation, adopting of good agricultural practices, providing traceability to the chain of custody. Quality controls are also applied to ensure that the grain is conventional (non-GM) throughout the production chain – cultivation, handling and transportation.
Socio-environmental certification for soybeans and corn, focused on meeting the European biofuels directive, EU RED.
2BSvs guarantees that the certified product complies with legal requirements and comes from properties that carry out good business practices, have responsible working conditions and community relations, produce with environmental responsibility, guaranteeing zero deforestation and native vegetation conversion, and have appropriate agricultural practices, which gives traceability to the chain of custody and applies to the entire production chain – cultivation, handling and transportation.
We have the Responsible Brazilian Cotton (ABR) / Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) certification for all cotton produced on AMAGGI owned farms.
The ABR / BCI certification audit verifies that production is carried out in a sustainable manner, respecting human rights and laws, and applies to the entire production chain, providing traceability to the chain of custody.
To ensure the functioning of socio-environmental management, we have the ISO 14.001 certification in several units, including farms, warehouses, factories, ports, shipyard and offices.
Units that do not have this certification have the same socio-environmental management system in place and undergo annual internal compliance verification audits.
AMAGGI Responsible Standard (A.R.S.)
Since 2016 we have our own certification standard in the area, the A.R.S., recognized by the European Federation of Feed Manufacturers (FEFAC).
