Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,
Deforestation is on the rise in areas of Brazil where Cargill sources commodities like soy, the cultivation of which has been linked to deforestation. And when tropical forests like these are crucial to protecting endangered species and slowing global warming, we can’t afford to wait until 2030 to take action.
Cargill can be a leader when it comes to ending deforestation. I urge you to strengthen Cargill’s commitment to eliminate deforestation in its supply chain by committing to achieve zero-deforestation as soon as possible.
