  • Is the company's progress reporting independently verified? Yes2 The methodology used to identify land use change with identification and quantification of all changes that occurred in native vegetation in the 2017-2020 period followed the steps: Farm identification: Farm registration through geo-referencing and preparation of a database with all limits; Satellite Images Selection: Selection of sensors, images, dates to be used and download the corresponding tiles; Satellite Images Processing; Pre-processing and processing of satellite images to carry out land use classifications; Land use change Detection: Land use classification of and changes detection between analyzed dates;_x000D_ Soybean areas analysis: Land use dynamics identification in soybean origination areas, _x000D_ and used images integrating the Sentinel, Landsat and RapidEye satellites. As different satellites were used for the study preparation (with different spatial resolutions), only deforestations larger than 5 hectares occupied by soybeans in the last harvest were taken into consideration.
COMMENTS AND DETAILS
  • 1The evolution of the mapping process, monitoring of direct suppliers and traceability of volumes sold in priority jurisdictions, allowed AMAGGI to analyze the incidence of deforestation in its supply chain and, consequently, the challenges to reach its commitment: Towards a deforestation and conversion free chain. As AMAGGI is part of the Soy Moratorium it does not allow any legal or illegal deforestation in the Amazon Biome to enter its chain, the deforestation analysis was carried out on the basis of monitored suppliers in the Cerrado biome, referring to the volume traded and tracked in the 19/20 crop, reaching the following conclusions: - 99% of the volume of soy originated originated and tracked by AMAGGI in 2019/2020, after 2017, is free from deforestation and conversion, after 2017. This reference year is used because it was in 2017 that AMAGGI published its Global Positioning and its commitment to a free deforestation chain. In the same year, AMAGGI published for the first time its Global Positioning and commitment to deforestation. This figure reaches 99.83% if we consider deforestation that occurred in 2019/2020. Although the third-party audit has not yet taken place, the results on tracked deforestation in AMAGGI progress report 2019 was produced by academy (Lavras University).

  • 2To analyze soybean areas, the volumes sold and tracked by the company in the 19/20 crop were considered. The Land Use Classification and Land Use Change were prepared by the Vega Monitoramento consultancy, a company that belongs to the Image Group and the Federal University of Lavras Foundation (UFLA), following UFLA's monitoring methodology.

Exposure to deforestation risk in South America
How exposed is the company to deforestation risk in South America?
  • Brazil No1 about 1% of the volume commercialized by AMAGGI from priority jurisdiction is exposed to some type of deforestation, for soybeans. Trase calculated 1482 hectares
  • Bolivien N/A
  • Argentina No2 2 hectares
  • Paraguay No3 9 hectares
COMMENTS AND DETAILS
  • 1AMAGGI has the 2 primary biomes, both from the point of view of volume, as well as risk of deforestation and loss of biodiversity. Thus, due to the commitment to the Soy Moratorium and the significance of the volume originated in the Amazon biome, all municipalities in this region are considered a priority in the search for biodiversity conservation and sustainability. The origination estimate in this biome is 45.5% of the volume originated by AMAGGI in Brazil. The state of Mato Grosso is made up of the two main biomes, Amazon and Cerrado, and is considered a higher priority jurisdiction for AMAGGI due to the risk of deforestation still existing and the representativeness of the volume originated (about 63% of the total) by AMAGGI, with 47% of this volume coming from the Cerrado. In the Cerrado biome, the volume originated by AMAGGI represents 37.5% of the total in Brazil. These priority jurisdictions (Amazon biome and the state of Mato Grosso) represent 75% of the total volume of soy originated in Brazil by AMAGGI, covering a total of 159 municipalities. The other 25% of the company’s origination in Brazil is in regions already consolidated, such as the South and Southeast (17%) and, to a lesser extent, in the states of Mato Grosso do Sul (2%) and Goiás (6%).

  • 2 "The AMAGGI Responsible Standard can be applied either to the farms owned or leased by the company, as well as those of soy and corn suppliers. An annual internal audit will be carried out on all farms in the group and an external audit will be performed in sample areas by an independent body with knowledge and accreditations for audits on sustainability standards, especially for grains cultivation. The creation of this Standard also includes the sustainability veto criteria for grain commercialization, applied to 100% of the supply chain, through its AMAGGI Responsible Grain Chain Program, as follows: [...] Veto to areas in integral protection conservation units; Veto to areas embargoed by the IBAMA for deforestation; Veto to the areas embargoed by state environmental agencies; Veto to areas deforested after 2008 in the Amazon biome (Soy Moratorium)" https://www.amaggi.com.br/en/sustainability/amaggi-responsible-standard/ ; "We are committed to: [...] Guarantee, in its own units, and stimulate within suppliers, a conversion free operation [...] 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."
