61 companies support statement of support for the Cerrado Manifesto

The movement to protect the Cerrado has now grown to over 60 global companies in 3 months. NOT to undermine existing or future soy & cattle production in the region but to promote resilient agricultural development aligned to global Climate and Sustainable Development Goals.

There are ~25 million hectares of already-cleared land in the Cerrado. There are clear benefits from a planning regime that prioritises already-cleared land for conversion while protecting carbon and biodiversity rich native vegetation to maintain economic growth.

We know there are many challenges: logistic, political, technical and more, but without open and constructive engagement these will never be overcome. Can the CerradoManifesto and the SoS be a catalyst for conciliation and conversation?
