Webinar: China's Links to Brazilian Deforestation

Deforestation-risks are embedded across the domestic and imported beef, poultry, and pork products China consumes as the country relies on more Brazilian soy and meat. CRR held a webinar last week to discuss our recent report on Yum China's exposure to Brazilian deforestation and heard from Jessye Waxman of Green Century Capital Management on what investors can do about it.

CRR Webinar: Brazilian Beef Supply Chain: The Main Actors, ESG Impacts, and Business Risks

In recent years, beef production in Brazil has expanded considerably amid favorable political, legislative, and enforcement changes. These trends have occurred at the same time as deforestation, fires, and land-grabbing in the Amazon have all increased. Investors and buyers in global supply chains have, meanwhile, started demanding compliance with sustainable practices and transparency from the cattle sector, particularly the three big companies: JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva. The ongoing exposure to supply chain deforestation, together with the impacts of COVID-19 on the industry, may result in fundamental business risks.

Please join CRR analysts for a conversation on our recent report on the beef cattle supply chain. We will also discuss our recent in-depth analysis of the meatpacker JBS, the largest meat processor in the world.

CRR Webinar: How Does the Palm Oil Spot Market Contribute to Deforestation?

Palm oil spot markets have become a backdoor that has allowed non-compliant producers to enter into the supply chains of companies with No Deforestation, No Peatland, and No Exploitation policies. The spot market’s nature allows palm products to cross many hands before reaching their final destinations, making due diligence difficult.

Please join Chain Reaction Research (CRR) analysts for a discussion on the palm oil spot market, how it contributes to deforestation and what market players can do to perform due diligence to reduce their exposure to deforestation.

Date - July 22, 2020
Time - 10:00 UTC−5 (EST - Eastern Standard Time) (US and Canada)
Hosts - Thre three partners in the CRR consortium: Aidenvironment, Profundo, Climate Advisers

CRR Webinar: Which companies are most exposed to deforestation-driven fires in their supply chains?

Expanding agricultural production was one of the main factors behind the Brazilian tropical fires that shocked the world in 2019. Indonesia also endured extensive blazes, often linked to deforestation for palm oil. NGOs, politicians and celebrities called for action to stop the fires, and the world will be watching again in 2020.

CRR analysts held a webinar on June 5th, 2020 to discuss the main drivers of the fires in Brazil and Indonesia, the actors involved, the political context, and the risks for investors. We will also look ahead at the risks involved with the upcoming fires season expected this summer.
