Fast-Moving Consumer Goods Companies (FMCGs) had aimed to eliminate deforestation in their supply chains by 2020, but most are lagging in implementing and executing their zero-deforestation policies. Recent CRR research has shown that FMCGs may face USD 16 billion to USD 82 billion in reputation risks as consumers, NGOs, and governments pressure them to increase their ambitions. 

Please join CRR analysts on November 19th for a discussion on how failing to meet sustainability goals tied to deforestation is exposing FMCGs to significant reputational and financial risks.


Hosts include the members of the CRR Consortium:

  • Aidenvironment
  • Profundo
  • Climate Advisers

French Casino Group and its subsidiary Grupo Pão de Açúcar (GPA), Brazil’s second-largest retailer, are facing a significant legal risk due to allegations of non-compliance with French law. Research by Envol Vert, Réporter Brasil, and Chain Reaction Research shows that GPA purchased beef sourced from farms involved in illegal deforestation and encroachment on indigenous communities leading to a potential lawsuit from Mighty Earth and other NGOs.  The increasing risks Casino Group faces are valued at USD 2.5 billion and could lead to increased engagement from financiers.

Please join CRR for our webinar that will include guests from Envol Vert and Mighty Earth to discuss Casino’s ties to deforestation, the legal ramifications, and the financial risks the company faces.
