Financing Forest Recovery
Produced by the Brazilian Federation of Banks (FEBRABAN) and the Centre for Sustainability Studies of FGV EAESP (FGVces), this report seeks to analyze the economic and financial feasibility of selected models for the financing of forest recomposition in Brazil. The scope of the study covers the states of São Paulo, Paraná and Mato Grosso, and the production of livestock, sugarcane, and soy. It additionally looks at the focus of family farming on polyculture systems.
In order to attain the proposed objective, economic-financial models were built to evaluate the impact of forest recomposition on the cash flow of its operations, considering their respective profitability. As a basis for these calculations it was decided that only forest recomposition activity without economic ends be considered, i.e. not accounting for any additional revenue.
