      "We divided our commitment “Towards a deforestation and conversion freegrain chain” into four main themes, these are: [...] Our commitment to deforestation and conversion includes our agricultural production activities and our grain origination from rural producers. It applies to all locations where we operate, in and outside Brazil, including the Cerrado and Amazon biomes, and our actions are determined according to analyzed and established priorities, which will be periodically reported to our stakeholders via a Progress Report."

      "AMAGGI has been working to have a supply chain free of deforestation, participating in initiatives such as the Soybean Moratorium, which completed ten years in 2016." "An important initiative was the creation of the Cerrado Working Group (GTC), whose vision is to eliminate, in the shortest possible time, deforestation linked to the soybean chain in the Cerrado, reconciling social, environmental and economic aspects. Participant since its foundation in 2017, AMAGGI, which holds one of the positions of coordination of the GTC, has contributed to the engagement of the actors in the soybean chain."

      "AMAGGI emphasizes the importance of maintaining actions and programs dedicated to reducing its emissions. With several actions aimed at reducing its emissions of greenhouse gases, such as those highlighted below, AMAGGI hopes to contribute to a low carbon agriculture, in line with its 2025 Plan: • Adoption of no-tillage practices in 100% of the AMAGGI farms, allowing the incorporation and retention of carbon in the soil. • Crop-livestock integration, which increases the effectiveness of nitrogen use in the soil, brings gains in productivity and improves livestock management. • Use and biological control of pests on AMAGGI farms, reducing the application of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers (nitrogen, in its N2O form, is considered a 300 times more harmful gas than carbon dioxide (CO2), producing a large impact on emissions total greenhouse gas emissions). • Expansion of agricultural activities in degraded or already open areas, and increase productivity per hectare, avoiding pressure on native forest areas."

      What is the total volume of GHG emissions arising from land use change?: 159,309 tons

      Which method is used to calculate the GHG emissions arising from land use change?: Not specified
      "AMAGGI has continuously improved the quality of its inventory, which is already one of the most complete in the agricultural sector. In addition to traditionally inventoried sources – such as fuel, biomass and fertilizer consumption – the company also includes emissions from crop residues (such as corn husks left on the soil after harvest) and calculates removals related to the incorporation of soil carbon, the result of better agricultural practices, such as no-tillage." In its 2018 Sustainability Report, Amaggi reports that it produced 599,345 tons of biogenic emissions (a reduction from 1,067,825 tons in 2017) and removed 440,036 tons of CO2 through biogenic processes. This gives a net biogenic emission of 159,309 tons.

          "AMAGGI participated in the creation and development process of the Soy Moratorium and attends the Soybean Working Group (GTS), meetings, formed by the companies associated to ABIOVE and ANEC, the Ministry of the Environment, Banco do Brasil, and civil society organizations. The Soy Moratorium effectiveness is internationally recognized and all positive impacts of this agreement are reported in several scientific studies.We support and are expanding our actions together with the Soja Plus Program, which is organized by ABIOVE and the Mato Grosso Soybean and Corn Producers Association (Aprosoja), which aims to generate a gradual and continuous improvement of environmental, social and economic production aspects through better rural property management.We have also joined the Brazil Climate, Forestry and Agriculture Coalition, which is a multisector coalition formed to promote and propose public policies, actions and financial/economic mechanisms to stimulate agriculture, livestock and forestry economics that shall propel Brazil towards leadership relating to sustainable economy and low carbon emission.Together with the Earth Innovation Institute we are searching for innovative development solutions capable of maintaining healthy tropical forest ecosystems, as well as working on developing the Territorial Performance Systems (TPS) that monitor and provide greater transparency in our supply chain.We are proud to have overseen the creation and participated in the Aliança da Terra, activities from the start. Aliança da Terra is a non-governmental organization created by rural producers with the objective of promoting sustainable production development. Furthermore, each year we strengthen our partnership with projects that encourage responsible production through a process of producer support and follow-up, in order to meet various indicators of good agricultural and socio-environmental practices.Since 2004 AMAGGI has a scientific technical cooperation with IPAM for the Savannah Transformation Experiment and good agricultural practices in the state of Mato Grosso in the Tanguro Farm, located in Querência – MT. This cooperation aims to carry out scientific studies directed to identifying and promoting landscape management practices that allow the development of more sustainable agricultural systems. Moreover, the company is also a partner in the Sustainable Landscapes project, which aims to strengthen socio-environmental governance, support the creation of multi-sector forums and evaluate the promotion of productive chains for small producers in the municipality.In a partnership with The Nature Conservancy – TNC that has existed for years, AMAGGI supports improving rural producers’ environmental performance in Mato Grosso. This initiative is currently focused on strengthening the post-CAR agenda (Rural Environmental Registry) in Alto Teles Pires region in the state of Mato Grosso with projects for restoring Permanent Preservation Areas (PPAs) and mapping municipalities through the socio-environmental registry.AMAGGI participated in the creation and is a member of the STATE STRATEGY COMMITTEE: PRODUCE, PRESERVE AND INCLUDE launched by the Mato Grosso Government in partnership with several institutions during the Conference of the Parties (COP), part of the UN’s Climate Change Convention in 2015. One ambitious strategy that has as some of its highlights the goals of eliminating illegal deforestation in the state by 2020; replacing 6 million hectares of degraded pasture with high productivity crops by 2030; to recover 1 million hectares of the deteriorated PPAs by 2030 (100%); preserve the native area of the state, now estimated to be 60% of the total territory; and the socioeconomic inclusion of 100 thousand families in the agriculture family structure with adequate technical assistance."
