&Green and Marfrig have signed a USD 30 million 10-year sustainability-linked loan facility, to achieve a deforestation-free cattle supply chain in the Amazon and Cerrado. Marfrig is a multinational corporation and one of the biggest animal protein producers in Brazil. The loan is part of Marfrig’s wider efforts to decouple its products from deforestation and builds on the efforts of the Marfrig Verde+ Plan, which was developed in partnership with IDH – The Sustainable Trade Initiative. The &Green investment triggers the implementation of an Environmental and Social Action Plan, which includes engagement with indirect suppliers, traceability and the mitigation of deforestation risks in the Amazon and Cerrado in order to achieve the goal of a deforestation-free supply chain.
