OUR BIGGEST ASSET, RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL OF US
BUSINESS MOVEMENT THROUGH THE AMAZON
The Amazon rainforest is the largest of the world's tropical forests and accommodates more than half of the planet's biodiversity. About 30 million species of animals are present there and approximately 30 million people live in the region. To guarantee the socio-environmental preservation and sustainable development of such a vast and diverse territory, all social sectors must work together.
The Business Movement for the Amazon brings together large companies in Brazil to express concern about the negative perception of the country's image abroad in relation to socio-environmental issues in the Amazon and other Brazilian biomes and to reinforce the support and participation of the Brazilian business sector for taking positive actions .
