Bunge achieved 80% traceability and monitoring of soybeans from its indirect supply chain in the Brazilian Cerrado as a part of the Bunge’s Sustainable Partnership Program.
Bunge announced it has achieved 80% traceability and monitoring of soybeans from its indirect supply chain in the Brazilian Cerrado. The pioneering, large-scale initiative to track indirect purchases in the biome is part of the Bunge’s Sustainable Partnership Program and underscores the company’s consistent performance in the development of sustainable and responsible supply chains, particularly in areas at higher risk of deforestation in Brazil.
Launched in 2021, Bunge’s Sustainable Partnership Program was designed to help grain resellers assess suppliers’ social-environmental performance. Through the program, Bunge shares its experience, methodologies and tools with grain resellers to enable them to bring to market commodities of proven sustainable origin. The program offers access to verification systems, such as satellite and farm-scale images to advance the traceability and monitoring of farms.
“The program reaffirms Bunge’s active role in engaging and positively influencing the entire supply chain in Brazil and remains an important instrument in helping the company achieve its goal of deforestation-free chains in 2025,” says Pamela Moreira, Bunge’s Sustainability Senior Manager for South America.
