The coalition seeks to decarbonize the agricultural supply chain

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA —BRF, Raízen, Rumo, AMAGGI and SINAI Technologies have formed a collaboration to collect, calculate, forecast and share primary data on emissions across the global agricultural supply chain to help drive industry mitigation and decarbonization.

Through this collaboration, companies are strengthening their commitments to the global agenda, understanding that commitment is essential to achieve decarbonisation. This is the first time – in any industry – for a collaborative initiative with the common goal of identifying decarbonization opportunities across all supply chain operations. Although this first partnership focuses on the agricultural industry, the objective is to accelerate the deployment of low carbon solutions in all supply chains.

“Participating in such an initiative with key players in our value chain strengthens AMAGGI’s plan to soon start offering carbon-neutral soybeans to the market, which will have a positive impact on the GHG emissions of products offered to consumers. consumers, ”said Juliana de Lavor Lopes, ESG at AMAGGI. , director of communications and compliance. “We understand that agriculture has a fundamental role in tackling climate change. Therefore, providing climate solutions to global challenges is in line with our sustainability strategy, which includes commitments to decarbonize our operations by 2035. and neutralize net emissions by 2050 (NetZero emissions), according to the Science-Based Targets (SBTi) initiative and the global Race to Zero movement, of which we are a part. ”

These companies will link emissions from seed processing to agricultural production, trade, logistics, feed production and exploitation and exploitation, and finally distribution from Brazil to global markets using the SINAI Technologies decarbonisation platform. From the consumer’s point of view, this gives the opportunity to see carbon neutral food products available in local supermarkets.

The companies use SINAI Technologies’ decarbonization platform to enable industry experts to develop emission allocation frameworks based on the primary data provided while prioritizing data confidentiality. The goal is for the software to provide automated allocation methodologies that are developed and reviewed by sustainability experts to ensure that primary data in this way will provide precision and transparency that can drive adoption of solutions. low carbon emissions and contribute to the liquidity and reliability of offsets and in-sets in a voluntary market.

All data collected will be audited by a third party to validate the data, allocation methodologies and calculations in SINAI’s decarbonisation platform.

“It is essential that we continue to find times to collaborate across global supply chains and enable cross-sector collaboration. Initiatives like this, and the Carbon Transparency Partnership of WBCSD and RMI, add substantial value to global adoption and collaboration, and set the tone for others to follow, ”said Maria Fujihara, CEO and founder of SINAI Technologies.
