Profile

Cencosud is a Chilean retail conglomerate with operations throughout Latin America. Its sales outlets include supermarkets, home improvement stores, shopping centres and department stores. The breadth of its retail market means it is exposed to several forest risk commodities. Cencosud is selected as a powerbroker for palm oil, soy, beef and paper packaging and is also assessed for its exposure to leather and timber.
