Even in a world that limits global warming to below 2°C, government, consumer, and private sector responses to climate change, known as “climate transitions”, will materially change the financial future of the Brazilian cattle sector.

Analysis of Brazil’s cattle sector shows that the risks posed by maintaining current production practices and business models are material for investors, producers and the sector’s entire value chain.
