When considering major issues such as global climate and environment, we find it very important to establish solid facts regarding Brazil’s track record and strong sustainable development credentials.
Firstly, 60% of Brazilian vegetation is primeval; it is now as it has been since time immemorial, and as it was in the time of the European settlers. These well-established figures are acknowledged by the World Bank, OECD and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.
Brazil also has some of the strictest environmental laws in the world, which allows for the protection of the Amazon and the other diverse biomes of our country. For this reason, Brazilian farmers can never touch 20% of their own lands, or even up to 80% in forested areas.

The Brazilian government modernized its credit laws and instituted the New Legal Framework for Guarantees, which will make it possible to offer lower interest rates and expand access to credit. Image
The New Framework creates a specialized guarantee management service to make the use of guarantees for the granting of credits more efficient, simple and safe, contributing to lower interest rates and increased competition. Image
It also improved the rules for guaranteeing immovable and movable assets and improved fiduciary alienation. The mortgage institute also put an end to the impossibility of contracting new credits linked to the same real estate guarantee given in fiduciary alienation. Image
