JBS advances in CDP's global sustainability ranking
In this year's ranking, which has just been released, the institution raised the Company's score from B to A- in Climate Change, above the average score (C) for food and beverage companies.
“JBS's good performance in Climate Change 2022 can be attributed to our Net Zero 2040 journey, which has contributed to a better understanding of our indicators and evolution of environmental management. We have also expanded projects linked to the circular economy in our production processes and expanded the use of renewable energy sources in our operations,” said Maurício Bauer, director of sustainability at JBS in Brazil.
In this year's edition, JBS was evaluated in 11 criteria, standing out in topics such as "Energy", "Business Strategy, Financial Planning and Scenario Analysis" and "Disclosure of Opportunities". According to the CDP criteria, an A- score means that the company is implementing the best market practices in the assessed topic.
The result in Climate Change 2022 consolidates JBS's efforts to make its operations even more sustainable in all links of its production chains. In 2022, for example, the company launched two new businesses linked to the circular economy, Genu-in, which produces collagen and gelatin peptides using bovine hides, and Campo Forte Fertilizantes, which uses organic waste for the production of organomineral fertilizers. In addition, JBS Biodiesel inaugurated its third biodiesel plant. The new unit is located in the city of Mafra (SC).
On the front of clean and renewable energy sources, Swift advanced in its plan to have 100% of its stores supplied by solar energy. Another relevant initiative this year was the creation of No Carbon, a company specialized in leasing 100% electric trucks. The new company's vehicles are already being used in the logistics fleets of Seara and Friboi for the delivery of their products in urban centers.
CDP is a reference in disclosing data on companies, cities, states and regions and is endorsed by around 680 investors with more than US$ 130 trillion in assets. Around 18.7 thousand companies report their results through the platform. Of these, 1,300 are Brazilian.
“This evolution shows that we are making concrete progress in our Net Zero 2040 commitment. We were the first global company in the protein sector to assume this commitment and we are advancing on several fronts to reach this goal”, emphasizes Maurício Bauer.
