Brazilian soy exports are linked to farms where illegal deforestation has taken place according to new analysis which found that as much as 20% of soy cultivation in Brazil’s largest soy-producing state was linked to illegal deforestation.

The analysis, carried out by Trase in partnership with Brazilian NGOs ICV and Imaflora, looked at levels of illegal deforestation on soy farms in Mato Grosso between 2012 and 2017 and found that over a quarter of the land that had been illegally cleared was on soy farms.
