Partnership with BNDES to generate large-scale positive social and environmental impacts

On November 10, at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26, Vale, through Fundo Vale, joined the Living Forest Initiative, launched by Brazil’s national development bank, BNDES. The goal is to reforest between 16,000 and 33,000 hectares with native species and biodiversity in the next seven years. To achieve this, financial support will be given to reforestation projects involving native species and agroforestry systems in several Brazilian biomes. Fundo Vale already has expertise in this area due to its Voluntary Forest Commitment.
