Radar Verde aims to give visibility to consumers and companies committed to reducing deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. It indicates, once a year, the performance of policies against deforestation of two key links in the chain that connect beef consumers to livestock farms: slaughterhouses, which buy and slaughter cattle, and supermarkets, which sell the beef to end consumers.
Here, you can check the full results of every year.


A new survey highlights that 95% of the largest retailers in Brazil and 92% of slaughterhouses do not demonstrated that they have chain control.
Which companies can guarantee that the beef they buy and sell – and that reaches consumers – is not associated with deforestation in the Amazon at any stage of production? To answer this question, Radar Verde, a new indicator that evaluates the effectiveness of slaughterhouses and supermarkets’ production chain control policies, is presenting today the results of its first edition. Imazon (Amazon Institute of People and the Environment), an international reference research institution, and O Mundo Que Queremos Institute (OMQQ), an organization focused on social and environmental projects, created the indicator’s methodology, the first of public access on the issue in Brazil.


A new indicator, Radar Verde, invited 90 slaughterhouses and 69 retailers to prove that their policies guarantee that the beef they buy and sell is not associated with deforestation in the Amazon. Only 5.5% of the companies accepted to participate in it this year. None of them authorized the disclosure of their final classification
