With organized actions, we are the world’s voice informing that it is possible to produce beef with biodiversity management in Brazil
Our positive agenda, searching for the development of sustainable livestock, through the balance among economic, social and environmental pillars, is the guide for our actions.
We have practical tools, suitable to the Brazilian scenario, based in indicators, whose base is grounded in the principle of the transparency and dialogue to foster its development.
Converging into a common ground, we combine on a single round table, representatives from several sectors of the supply chain, such as producers, financial institutions, industries, civil society, inputs and services, retails and restaurants and education and research.
Our model motivated initiatives, in other countries. We have been recognized with the Certificate of International Excellence on Sustainability and we represent Brazil in the UN
The diversity of people and ideas, as a single hub, is our main asset to motivate practical actions for the sustainable intensification:
- Integration of Livestock-Crop-Forestry
- Maintenance of the standing forest
- Payment for environmental services.
We are also inspiring international initiatives, as the Global Round-Table for Sustainable Beef (Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef – GRSB), where we are active members, besides forming groups abroad.
The deep knowledge on the cattle supply chain, plus the ability to integrate the sector with transparency and providing applicable tools, makes us unique in the search for sustainable livestock.
To foster the development of sustainable livestock, through the articulation of the chain, the continuous improvement and the dissemination of information
As an non-profit entity, GTPS and all its members assume the commitment with the development of sustainable livestock, by means of the chain articulation, the dissemination of information and by supporting the continuous improvement, pursuing economic, social and environmental balance among the pillars.
If today we have a clear-cut intention and longevity, we owe it to our history and the players who were part of it, as well as to our actions.
