Signing on to Commitments that are Effecting Change

8 = Years in which ADM has been a signatory to the Brazilian Soy Moratorium. This participation confirms our commitment to refrain from trading in soy originated in areas within the Amazon Biome that were deforested after July 2006. Prior to the moratorium, according to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, 30 percent of soy expansion occurred through deforestation, and after the moratorium, only about 1 percent has come at the expense of forest.

ADM has also agreed to respect the embargo on crops produced in areas identified by IBAMA, the Brazil Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources, as improperly deforested or burned.

8 = Years in which ADM has been a signatory to the National Agreement to Eradicate Slave Labor in Brazil. The pact is a commitment to refrain from negotiating with companies included in the Lista Suja, or "dirty list,"  maintained by the Brazilian Ministry of Labor.
