04.07.2022

BLOMSTEIN advises Brazilian cattle and beef sector representative, Instituto Mato-Grossense da Carne, on EU’s ESG regulatory framework.

In particular:

  • BLOMSTEIN conducted regulatory impact assessment of the German Supply Chain Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz), the proposal for a European Directive on corporate sustainability due diligence, and the proposed European Regulation on deforestation-free products. Specifically, we analysed, compared, and identified the significant regulatory effects on Brazilian companies.
  • BLOMSTEIN drafted a Position Paper on the proposed Regulation on deforestation-free products and provided the European Commission and the European Parliament with comments and insights on how to work together to stop deforestation. IMAC and BLOMSTEIN advocated for Brazilian cattle and beef sector’s positions during meetings held in Germany and Brussels and facilitated dialogues among all stakeholders.

IMAC is an autonomous social agency that has sustainability as a core objective. IMAC develop projects to bring sustainable practices to small and medium producers, helping to reduce the environmental impact of the cattle production, while having a positive impact on the local communities. IMAC represents the cattle and beef sectors in the state of Mato Grosso, the biggest producer in Brazil with more than 30 million head of cattle, accounting for 14% of the country’s production. IMAC brings together the state government, the cattle farmers and the world’s largest meat processors such as JBS, Marfrig and Minerva.

The BLOMSTEIN team consists of Roland M. Stein, Anna Blume Huttenlauch and Bruno Galvão.
