Brazil: Greenpeace and Mongabay’s report and reporting on Cattle

Industry Must: 1) Support the call for zero Deforestation in the
Brazilian Amazon. 2) Stop the trade in products from deforestation and
communicate to suppliers that they will no longer buy from companies
engaged in deforestation. 3) Provide reliable guarantees of the origin
of cattle products such as meat and leather to customers. 4) Reduce
greenhouse gas emissions by adopting environmentally-friendly methods
of production and establish renewable energy targets. –Greenpeace
