AMAGGI is the only soy company with a leadership score in CDP ranking

For the fifth consecutive year, AMAGGI has achieved a leadership score on the global Carbon Disclosure Program (CDP) list, in the Forests category. The company was the only soy producer and trader to achieve this index in the CDP ranking. The result is yet another recognition received by the company for its sustainability-focused strategies and actions. The ‘CDP Awards’ ceremony took place this Thursday (14), being broadcast online.

AMAGGI’s score (A-) is above the average for the agricultural cultivation sector in South America (B-) and the global CDP average (C). The company was the only one with an A- score in Latin America in the Forests category.

Over 23 thousand companies were evaluated in this edition of the CDP, a non-profit program that recognizes initiatives around the world for carbon emission reduction and climate change mitigation, as well as best practices associated with environmental leadership.

“We have a very clear commitment to combating native vegetation conversion and deforestation, as well as mitigating the impacts of climate change. We promote regenerative agriculture and base our actions on respect for human rights. Our sustainability agenda includes the main socio-environmental challenges and the leadership score in the CDP is another recognition of this work”, said Juliana Lopes, Chief ESG, Communication and Compliance Officer at AMAGGI.

The 2023 CDP questionnaire was based on 2022 information.

To achieve an A or A- score, companies need to demonstrate environmental leadership and best practices in strategies and actions, as well as disclose initiatives on other essential sustainability topics, such as setting science-based targets and publishing reports on the impact of deforestation.

AMAGGI develops actions and strategies, as well as monitors results, for its forest and native vegetation management. In total, the company has 177 thousand hectares of preserved areas, including Legal Reserve (LR), Permanent Preservation Areas (PPA), and forest surpluses.

Among AMAGGI’s main goals related to the sector are to maintain zero deforestation and conversion of native vegetation for agricultural production on its farms and to achieve a deforestation and native vegetation conversion-free grain supply chain by 2025.

Climate Change

AMAGGI was also evaluated, for the first time, in the Climate Change category of the CDP, achieving a B score, above the average score for the agricultural sector (C) and equal to the regional average for South America.

This result indicates that the company has been taking coordinated measures regarding climate change. In the Climate category, the company has been advancing year after year in important areas such as setting targets with the SBTi (Science Based Target Initiative) and in its decarbonization plan through regenerative agriculture and energy transition actions towards more sustainable sources, such as recently announced B100 use projects.
