Context

WEF: Land use and ecological sensibility

Minerva Foods formulates its strategy with a keen awareness of potential impacts that could compromise biodiversity throughout the company’s value chain. This includes illegal deforestation for pasture expansion and the inappropriate use of fertilizers and pesticides. The latter can lead to adverse environmental effects such as the eutrophication of water bodies and contamination of the groundwater. Deforestation poses a significant threat by directly destroying natural habitats, resulting in the loss of biodiversity. Additionally, the repurposing of native areas for other uses substantially contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and generates socio-environmental impacts. To ensure supplier compliance with biodiversity preservation, we employ geographic monitoring, applying socio-environmental criteria outlined in our Purchasing Policy.

The responses from the Brazilian division consider maps of priority regions in terms of biodiversity protection: the Map of Priority Areas. All areas are outside environmental protection areas and refer to manufacturing/production activities.

Position in relation to high biodiversity value areas = adjacent areas. For other units, these are within high biodiversity value areas. ** The indicator began to be reported in 2023.
