      4/14
      [Translation] "We share the concern regarding the global levels of deforestation and its implications for climate change, for the benefit of economic development and, consequently, the business environment in which we operate. We continuously improve our social and environmental risk management policies in granting credit, adopting criteria that also contribute to the management of illegal deforestation." "In April 2018, Bradesco became part of the ILPF Network, whose objective is to foster projects like this, through financing that aims to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural activities, as well as: deforestation; increase in agricultural production on a sustainable basis; adaptation of rural properties to environmental legislation; stimulating the recovery of pastures; degraded areas; among other benefits."
