JBS looking for guaranteed sustainable supply

Frequently targeted by environmental NGOs, JBS has set up a department to take care exclusively of issues related to the sustainability of its operations. The director of the new position is economist Marcio Nappo, who was had been head of the Social and Environmental department at Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) since 2009. His has also worked at the Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA) and the Brazilian Vegetable Oil Association (ABIOVE).

Nappo takes over with a clear mandate, to keep the JBS supply chain free of farmers who commit environmental and / or labor crimes, which have proven to be the world's largest meat processor's Achilles heel. "The big challenge is to develop a robust and credible cattle monitoring and tracking system," he says.
He guarantees that JBS already has an effective system in place to monitor its 22,000 registered suppliers.
