About this report

Put together in a collaborative and inclusive process, SCF progress reports help build a shared understanding of, vision, and strategy for a lasting solution to soy-driven deforestation and native vegetation conversion (NVC) in Brazil’s Cerrado region.

This report, our sixth so far, outlines progress since June 2021.

 

Apart from compiling key traceability data of the member companies, the report explains the SCF’s expansion of work to cover 70% of conversion of native vegetation to soy and provides updates on indicators of success and progress on three refined workstreams:

By publishing this report, our six member companies, all leading global agribusinesses and nutrition companies, reaffirm their full commitment to an industry-wide solution that will support increased soy production while protecting the Cerrado biome.

Our special thanks go to Abiove, Agrosatelite, the Amazon Environmental Research Institute (IPAM), The Consumer Goods Forum, The Tropical Forest Alliance (TFA), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Proforest, Produzindo Certo, the Produce, Conserve, Include (PCI) Initiative, Solidaridad Brazil, and other key partners both within the value chain and beyond. We greatly appreciate your engagement, support, advice, and challenging views over the years.
