Initiatives

JBS Green Platform

The JBS Green Platform is an unprecedented initiative that will cross-reference information about the company’s suppliers with livestock transportation data. The technology will enable it to extend to the other links in the production chain the socioenvironmental monitoring that already applies to the company’s suppliers in the Amazon thereby also identifying, monitoring and analyzing the suppliers of the Company's direct suppliers.

The platform will employ blockchain technology precisely to provide confidentiality and security of access to the information and transparency in the analyses of suppliers. The information collated by the platform will be integrated into the JBS Supplier Monitoring System, which will analyze the data based on the JBS Responsible Procurement Policy. The work will be audited, and the results reported in the Annual Sustainability Report.
