Their Progress

They have been working with farmers, industry partners, communities, governments and NGOs to reduce deforestation and improve the sustainability of soy production for more than 15 years. This work started in the Brazilian Amazon with the Soy Moratorium, which has been extended indefinitely.

Soy is a critical part of the agricultural economy as well as an essential ingredient in the global food system. They support soy farmers at all levels of production across Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay to help them achieve commercial success while growing crops more sustainably. For example, through Soja Mais Sustentável – a partnership with The Natural Conservancy (TNC) – they promoted good agricultural practices and train farmers in accordance with the Brazilian Forestry Code.
