In Brazil, sourcing decisions are subject to review under Soy Moratarium, IBAMA & Graos de Para.

In addition, Argentina has an extensive certification program: in 2019 nearly 50% of our sourcing was 2bvs compliant which entails traceability and monitoring to farm, applying a cut off date of 2008. In 2020, nearly 5000 farms was monitored.

  • 12020 Internal: Brazil: 77% traceability to farm for all direct purchases and traceability to municipality. Argentina: 84-90% of LDC Argentina’s origination volumes over the previous two campaigns came from verified sources of no-deforestation risk. Nearly 50% of Argentina's Sourcing is verified under the 2bvs Scheeme, by Control Union. Paraguay: 75% come from low risk areas, 24% comes from medium risk areas came from less 5% of land converted areas. Only 1% of LDC sourcing comes from high risk areas, mostly from the north region where around 16% of its area has been converted. For 2021 we count on working with Gaivota for Brazil and with TNC for Argentina

  • 2In Argentina we use the sourcing information of each truck that comes to to our gathering points and asset the condition of the municipality/departament using government data (Carta de Porte) to undertand the progresion of deforestation in these regions. In Paraguay we use satelite imagery to undertand the expansion of soy over deforestation and then maped the sourcing using company data (suppliers data base). In Brazil, we apply traceability GPS points/polygon shape files, and overlay this with CAR information. PRODES Cerrado (or Amazon) is then applied. See Transparency report
