The Brazilian Roundtable on Sustainable Livestock concludes its participation in COP28 with a panel on the implementation of traceability in the value chain of Brazilian livestock.

On Monday, December 11, the Brazilian Roundtable on Sustainable Livestock participated in its final agenda at COP28 with the panel "Accelerating the Implementation of Traceability in the Livestock Sector: Collaborative Strategies for Sustainable Supply Chains," held at the Amazon Governors' Consortium Pavilion and organized by JBS, an associate organization of the Roundtable.

The panel's objective was to identify concrete actions that different links in the livestock value chain can take in the short term to accelerate the implementation of traceability in the sector.

Luiza Bruscato, the executive director of the Brazilian Roundtable, was one of the speakers. She highlighted the importance of the productive sector's involvement in the discussions and shared the sector's vision. "We have seen a change in attitude in the productive sector in recent years. When the livestock value chain started discussing traceability, producers were not interested and requested that these discussions not be held within the Roundtable. Now, it's the opposite; producers are requesting that these discussions happen within the Roundtable because they want to be part of the solution," Luiza commented.

The Roundtable has been working over the past ten months to create guidelines for individual traceability that is feasible and efficient, applicable nationwide, and scaled according to Brazil's territorial and cultural differences.

The panel was moderated by Isabel Garcia-Drigo, Climate & Emissions and Data Intelligence at Imaflora, and featured participants Jason Weller, CSO of JBS; Francisco Beduschi Neto, Brazil Leader of NWF; Renata Miranda, Secretary of Innovation, Sustainable Development, Irrigation, and Cooperativism at the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAPA); João Adrien, Head of ESG Agro at Itaú-BBA; and Raoni Rajão, Head of the Department for Deforestation and Fire Control Policies at MMA.
