Members include soya traders such as Bunge, Cargill, ADM and Amaggi, as well as NGOs including Greenpeace, Conservation International, TNC, IPAM and WWF. The Brazilian government also committed to support the moratorium by speeding up the registration and mapping of rural properties. This includes designating environmental and economic zoning within the Amazon biome and prioritising areas where soya production is concentrated. The government also monitors and searches for newly deforested areas, using advanced satellite mapping at a higher level of detail than before.
