Making Progress on Eliminating Deforestation From Our Agricultural Supply Chains Worldwide

Bunge has a zero deforestation commitment for all of our operations. 

In 2016 we enhanced the traceability of our supply, blocked purchases from farmers who’ve violated environmental law and collaborated with civil society, other companies and government entities to develop practical decision support tools that will identify areas that are agriculturally and environmentally suitable for agricultural expansion.

We also developed strategic plans and communicated our commitments through various channels, including company reports, media interviews and direct communications.

In 2017, we’ll go further and work to develop incentives for sustainable expansion.
