Companies in the United States and Europe face growing pressure from governments to conduct rigorous environmental risk screening, particularly of raw imported materials. Manufacturers and other downstream buyers wishing to avoid conflict-affected and high-risk inputs should treat timber and other deforestation-linked commodities from the Brazilian Amazon with extra scrutiny.

This report shows how publicly available information on environmental violations and export records can be combined to flag high-risk exporters of timber and other deforestation-linked commodities. It identifies 58 Brazilian exporters exposing downstream markets to high-risk timber and analyzes five of these companies’ corporate networks in a series of enhanced due diligence case studies, which include:

  • Destination country breakdowns
  • Ownership and control diagrams
  • Background on regulatory evasion tactics
  • Insight into downstream risk
