WHY? REDUCING RISKS, PROMOTING INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT

A growing consensus exists in the financial world that in order to fully understand the risks that climate change poses to investee companies and portfolios, institutional investors cannot ignore the risks associated with agriculture, forestry and land use.

In Brazil, agriculture, forestry and land use account for 69% of the gross greenhouse gas emissions arising from human activity, with the majority of this coming from land use change (44%).

There are many risks. Beyond climate-related risks, companies directly or indirectly linked to soft-commodity driven land use change face reputational risks, legal risks and market access risks. Land use change also affects agricultural productivity, through loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services, soil degradation and disruption of hydrological cycles. Social problems also cannot be ignored: slavery and land grabbing of public land are among the most important in countries like Brazil.
