[To read this story in Portuguese, please, click here]

The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre invited 55 companies to respond to allegations of their involvement in the deforestation of the Amazon as well as human rights abuses. The report from Amazon Watch and Articulação dos Povos Indígenas do Brasil-APIB (National Articulation of the Indigenous Peoples of Brazil) , "Complicity in Destruction II: How northern consumers and financiers enable Bolsonaro's assault on the Brazilian Amazon", states that European and North American businesses that finance and source from Brazil are connected to the Brazilian government´s roll-back of socio-environmental standards that are fundamental to preserving the Amazon's ecological integrity and the well-being of indigenous people. The report analysed Brazilian companies that were fined for environmental crimes in the Amazon since 2017, and identified a range of northern commercial interests that do business with them. There are allegations that agribusiness companies operated in areas of indigenous land conflicts and extracted resources from protected areas.
