Repórter Brasil: BNDES finances beef companies that buy from deforested farms and use slave labour
Social and environmental commitments have been put in place over the years in the country's production chains. However, they are not always enough to avoid irregularities in the agricultural and livestock sector, as an exclusive article by the NGO Repórter Brasil shows. According to data released by the entity, the National Economic and Social Development Bank (BNDES) is financing beef processors that slaughter animals raised on farms that have been illegally deforested, embargoed by Ibama, overlap into conservation units or indigenous lands or that use slave labour in their activities.
