On the last 6th, more than 70 companies and business groups, including Biofílica, joined the World Business Council For Sustainable Development (Brazil) in a statement sent to the Amazônia Legal National Council in defense of the country’s sustainable development and conservation of the Amazon.
In the letter, we and the other organizations make our resources and intelligence available, in order to contribute with solutions to the social and environmental issues that the country has faced.
The actions promoted will be based on seven axes, which take into account the current extraordinary situation:
The climatic emergency and the environmental crisis that we are experiencing gains more and more notoriety. If it was a hot topic, it took even more strength in the face of the pandemic scenario.
What is most striking is that, even though the environment has responded quickly to the change in habits experienced as a result of measures to combat contagion in COVID-19, CO2 levels should resume and continue to increase with the return of economic activities around the world.
In addition, pressure from investors and international demands on compliance with emissions reduction and forest conservation commitments are of concern to executives. The country’s current negative perception of the Amazon may mean damage to the Brazilian business sector, including for the development of business and fundamental projects for the country.
It is in our hands to use the efforts, resources and knowledge we have to foster and strengthen good environmental, social and governance practices to transform the Brazilian economy into a model of circular, low carbon and inclusive economy.
Therefore, we are happy to join the movement for sustainability and proud to be part of the change alongside organizations with the same purpose. Let us together build a sustainable future for the country and for the next generations!
