    Zero Deforestation Commitment

    For the conservation and preservation of forests and biodiversity
    (OVERVIEW)

    Zero Deforestation by 2030

    The high level of deforestation and its repercussions in terms of the loss of biodiversity and impact on climate change, reinforce the need and the urgency to develop and implement a Zero Deforestation commitment that is ambitious and whose implementation guarantees effective results. In this sense, Sonae companies aim to ensure, by 2030, the absence of deforestation in operations and supply chains, particularly in countries with the highest risk of deforestation and associated with commodities such as cattle, wood, palm oil and soy. Additionally, Sonae companies aim to ensure “zero deforestation” in the development of new infrastructure and to contribute positively to the conservation and restoration of forests.
