Socio-Environmental Management

We are committed to acting in a socially fair, environmentally responsible and economically viable manner. To this end, we have developed the Socio-Environmental Policy and the Socio-Environmental Management (GSA). Both are based on the NBR 16001:2012 requirements and integrate ISO 14001:2015 standards and A.R.S. (AMAGGI Responsible Standard), RTRS (Round Table on Responsible Soy), ProTerra and ABR/BCI (Responsible Brazilian Cotton / Better Cotton Initiative).

GSA is formed by a set of activities developed and operated by the Corporate Sustainability area together with the company’s units. The proposal is to prevent and minimize possible negative socio-environmental impacts related to AMAGGI’s operations, products and services, in addition to maximizing positive impacts with actions and programs.

  • Improve our processes, seeking to prevent pollution and social impacts, manage greenhouse gas emissions and improve socio-environmental performance in our operations and value chain.
  • Adopt good socio-environmental practices to minimize accidents, negative impacts and generate shared value.
  • Promote business partners and key stakeholders engagement for socio-environmental responsibility.
  • Promote respect for Human Rights and decent work in its operations and value chain.

Value Chain Development

Responsible Grain Chain

To ensure responsible practices in the production and supply chain, extensive monitoring, guidance and incentives to improve management are carried out with partner rural producers. This involves carrying out a socio-environmental diagnosis, technical visits and internal audits with the AMAGGI teams. Among the guidelines carried out, the correct, safe and efficient use of pesticides by producers in the value chain is promoted. As an input trading company, one of the commitments is to ensure safety in the use and handling of these products, so that they do not pose risks to human health.
Bring technical information on production, as well as marketing tools, economic scenario and sustainability of the production chain, bringing the company even closer to rural producers. It is also the main action to engage and raise awareness among producers for the responsible use of pesticides.

Responsible Logistics Program

The program seeks to promote well-being and a good relationship between the company and our transport suppliers, in addition to minimizing the social, environmental and economic impacts resulting from the road and river transport of our products. Since 2012, actions have been carried out by the Sustainability area, such as People Support, Logistics and Operations, Corporate Insurance, Operational Health and Safety and Corporate Security.
As part of this program, since 2014 we have maintained a partnership with the on the Right Path Program, from the NGO Childhood Brasil, with the aim of protecting children and adolescents against sexual abuse and exploitation. The focus is mainly on vulnerable communities close to the highways and waterways used for the outflow of our agricultural production.

Local Development

Present in all regions of the country, AMAGGI understands that it exerts an important influence on the social and economic context through activities, operations and relationships with stakeholders. And it understands that growth is only viable when it contributes to the development of local communities.

Each region has its own social, cultural and economic characteristics. Therefore, the company acts with social responsibility, preventing and monitoring possible negative impacts, especially with a view to respecting the human rights of the communities. That is why, together with the André and Lucia Maggi Foundation, we invest in initiatives such as mapping and managing local impacts, generating employment and income, disseminating knowledge and territorial development.

Private Social Investment

AMAGGI also contributes to local and territorial development through the Private Social Investment Policy, with actions planned and carried out by the André and Lucia Maggi Foundation. The portfolio brings together programs and projects that contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with AMAGGI’s Global Sustainability Positioning and ESG Goals.

All resources are provided for in the annual budget, according to the planning carried out by the executive team of the André and Lucia Maggi Foundation and approved by the members of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

Assurance of
Origin Programs and Socio-Environmental Certifications

AMAGGI believes that the guarantee of origin programs and socio-environmental certifications are ways of reaffirming its commitment to a sustainable and responsible production. As a result, they generate social, environmental – such as zero deforestation and conversion – and economic benefits for producers, companies and consumers throughout their value chain.


For all its investment in a geo-spatial system and traceability of the supply chain, AMAGGI began to offer the market an exclusive program of Guarantee of Origin capable of meeting the most demanding market.

Denominated as ORIGINS, it guarantees a responsible origin of grains, deforestation and conversion free (DCF), traceable and verified by a third party. It also includes the calculation of areas of forest and native vegetation and their respective carbon stock, making it possible to calculate the carbon footprint of the grain and has a module with a 100% digital and highly scalable solution.

Launched in 2021, it is already marketed by AMAGGI and is one of the company’s main tools to guarantee sustainability goals and to have 100% of the chain free of deforestation and conversion of native vegetation by 2025.

In 2024, for the second consecutive year, the FEFAC (Federation of European Feed Manufacturers) recognized that AMAGGI’s Origins Field standard meets the main sustainability criteria established by the entity. Among the fundamental principles are no conversion or deforestation and soy traceability.

Certification Guide: ORIGINS FIELD



The ACTS program was implemented to provide full transparency on the cotton produced by AMAGGI from origin to destination.

Using traceability technologies and a QR Code reader, the buyer quickly accesses information about where and when the cotton was produced. Information on sustainability, production methods and even the people involved in the cultivation are also available for all actors present in the value chain.

With the transparency and traceability provided by ACTS, the proposal is to support trading partners, manufacturers and consumers to make more conscious choices when purchasing products that have cotton as a raw material.


Socio-Environmental Certifications

RTRS – Round Table on Responsible Soy

First 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. They range from producers, industry, financial institutions and the consumer market to governments, NGOs and associations. AMAGGI has been a member of the RTRS Executive Committee since 2007 and is 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 product meets legal requirements and that it comes from properties that carry out good business practices, have working conditions and responsible community relations. It also certifies that production is environmentally responsible, with zero deforestation and conversion of native vegetation, with appropriate agricultural practices, providing traceability to the chain of custody.

Currently, a significant portion of the world's RTRS soy is certified by AMAGGI in the EU RED - Renewable Energy Directive, physical (mass balance) and credit (book and claim) modalities.


The ProTerra Standard seal guarantees that the certified product meets environmental and social requirements and is not genetically modified (GMO). AMAGGI is a member of the Certification and Standard Management Committee.

Audits verify that production is sustainable. Therefore, with zero deforestation and conversion of native vegetation, respecting human rights and legislation, adopting good agricultural practices, providing traceability to the chain of custody.

The seal also applies quality controls to ensure that the grain is conventional (non-GMO) throughout the production chain — cultivation, handling and transport.

2BSvs guarantees that the product meets legal requirements and comes from properties that carry out good business practices, have responsible working conditions and community relations.

In addition, it produces with environmental responsibility, ensuring zero deforestation and conversion of native vegetation and has adequate agricultural practices, which provides traceability to the chain of custody. The certification applies to the entire production chain: cultivation, handling and transport.


AMAGGI has a Brazilian Responsible Cotton (ABR) / Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) certification for all cotton produced on its own farms.

The ABR/BCI audit verifies that production is sustainable, respecting human rights and legislation, and applies to the entire production chain, providing traceability to the chain of custody.

ISO 14.001

To ensure the functioning of socio-environmental management, we have ISO 14001 certification in several units including farms, factories, ports, shipyard and head office.

Units that do not have certification, have the same socio-environmental management system in place and undergo annual internal audits to verify compliance.
