“JBS’s good performance in Climate Change 2022 can be attributed to our Net Zero 2040 journey, which has contributed to a better understanding of our indicators and evolution of environmental management. We have also expanded projects linked to the circular economy in our production processes and expanded the use of renewable energy sources in our operations,” said Maurício Bauer, director of sustainability at JBS in Brazil.
