For us, the soil is an essential asset and our commitment to sustainability and good conservation practices is directly linked to our business and our aim to regenerate life on earth.
This is not a random choice of our aim, rather it comes from the fact that when we talk about earth, we are talking about the soil and the people that inhabit our planet.
Our annual sustainability report is presented showing the results of our operations in Brazil in 2021.here.
We employ careful management practices which prioritize and maintain soil health.
The soil is the single most important element in terms of raising our planet´s environmental resilience which, in turn, means greater social development.
It is responsible for providing us with the necessary conditions to produce food, textile fibers and many other inputs.The soil performs numerous, valuable functions that are essential in agriculture:
- Storing and filtering water
- Climate control
- Recycling nutrients and decomposing organic matter
- Contributing to carbon sequestration
- Providing habitats for living organisms
- Preventing floods and recycling nutrients
- A large source of biodiversity
- Providing the necessary conditions to produce food, textile fibers and many other inputs.

ETHICS AND INTEGRITY
We have adopted a modern, decentralized management model with a participatory approach, based on values and organizational learning, and in 2021 we launched our Code of Ethics together with our Integrity Policy and Supplier’s Manual.
This way, we can show our employees and suppliers the emphasis we place on all the policies adopted by Scheffer, thus promoting integrity as a value to guide behavior and decision-making by employees and other stakeholders in the company's internal and external relationship networks. This enables continued compliance with laws and also ensures that a culture of integrity that values ethical behavior is maintained.
