Proforest Initiative Brazil
Proforest Initiative Brazil was established in Brasilia, Brazil in 2013. Its aim is to help Proforest achieve its goals more effectively in Brazil and in other Latin American countries. In recent years, Proforest Brazil has expanded its scope to include work in Argentina and Paraguay, too.
Having a presence in Brazil has allowed us to provide continuous support to companies, sustainability initiatives, government departments, and civil society organisations in Brazil and other Latin American countries. It has also meant we can help our international clients roll out their global policies on the ground in the region.
Our team includes specialists in forest management, soy, beef, palm oil and sugar supply chains, conservation and sustainability initiatives, and certification. Team members have extensive work experience in Latin America and internationally, and we can work in Portuguese, Spanish and English.
How is Proforest Brazil governed?
