REDD+

We work in partnerships for the conservation of more than 1 million hectares of native forest in the Amazon.

Our projects are developed alongside with communities and private Project owners to avoid invasions and illegal deforestation, promoting scientific research, monitoring biodiversity conservation and fostering local economy development based on timber and non-timber forest products.


Suzano Pulp and Paper chose to offset its emissions with Jari Amapá REDD+ Project, among other initiatives, due to its credibility and for being aligned with our strategy, values and principles. Biofilica presented to us a recognized project, effective on avoiding deforestation and audited by competent and compromised socioenvironmental institutions. Thus, we perceive and implement sustainable management alternatives in areas with great importance for biodiversity conservation and development of local communities.

The Sequoia Energy is a player on the wind energy sector in Brazil, and in order to comply with environmental rules we’re required to compensate Legal Reserve of our wind energy projects. After several market surveys Sequoia identified Biofílica as a benchmark on providing services related with environmental issues.

Thus, in 2014 we closed our first deal and the environmental license worked perfectly, then, again in 2016, we closed our second deal with Biofilica in order to attend other request from the environmental agency. We are very pleased and with no doubt, the partnership between Sequoia and Biofilica will last for many years.

RURAL ENVIRONMENTAL REGISTRY AND SUPPLY CHAINS

We joined Santiago & Cintra Consultoria, a leading company on geoespacial technology, to register Brazilian rural properties into the official Rural Environmental Registry (known as CAR from the Portuguese “Cadastro Ambiental Rural”).

RURAL ENVIONMENTAL REGISTRY

The Rural Environmental Registry (or CAR, from the Portuguese Cadastro Ambiental Rural) is a mandatory online registry central to legal compliance and sustainable planning of rural properties. The joint-venture between Biofilica and SCCON performed the registry of major cooperatives and companies within the agribusiness sector, collaborating with the enforcement of the Brazilian New Forest Code.

The Biofílica and SCCON partnership developed into Auditsat, a company specialized in monitoring and auditing of rural properties via remote sensing to support rural financing operations and the environmental management of supply chains. The solutions provide transparency, traceability, efficiency and reporting consistency, integrating financial, environmental and business data to promote sustainable practices and monitoring of these practices.

Auditsat is focused on monitoring and auditing rural credit guarantees and insurances, besides monitoring the environmental status of supply chains.
