This connection is expressed in the global and national initiatives we are part of and in our Global Sustainability Positioning, which has socio-environmental responsibility as one of its principles (read more on page 20). The first step towards meeting these purposes is to be in full compliance with Brazilian laws: Brazilian Forest Code and other environmental laws. All productive activities are carried out outside the boundaries of Conservation Units or any other areas protected by law. The company's Agro business area works to develop agricultural activities at sites that are already consolidated and, therefore, opened before 2008. Since that date, the properties are free of openings and conversion, and we are committed to zero deforestation for agricultural purposes at our units. Our farms were opened more than 20 years ago, when the occupation of the midwest region took place. We monitor all the areas dedicated to preservation through satellite images of the National Space Research Institute (INPE), as well as on-site inspections and remote analyses through our geospatial platform ORIGINAR."
