The Brazilian poultry industry is concentrated in the South, Southeast and Midwest regions of the country, far from the Amazon biome, and producers adopt procedures to control the impact of their activities on the environment.
Brazil is signatory to the main international conventions and treaties on environment protection, such as the Kyoto Protocol, and its environmental legislation is widely recognized as being amongst the strictest in the world.
Chicken meat producers are concerned about the preservation of the environment and the companies in this sector have their own control programs, which are always on constant surveillance of the consumers.
A recent study showed that chicken production uses less water and electricity, produces less greenhouse gases and has less impact on the soil, compared to other livestock production.
Besides that, a report released in 2008 by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) from the British government, shows that the Brazilian poultry industry uses 25% less electricity and has 17% less greenhouse gases emissions than British poultry production.
Also, the companies hold different social programs in the communities they are located, giving support to schools and their employees children and contributing to the development of the new generations.
All this is the evidence that the Brazilian poultry industry is a leader not only in terms of quality, but also in sustainability.
