JBS Alters Purchase Criteria
Effect of Recent Deforestation on Slaughterhouse Purchase Probability54
Chart from Gibbs et al. 2015

Panel analysis results demonstrate that the JBS slaughterhouses were significantly less likely to purchase from properties with recent deforestation by 2012 (p < 0.001).55 Prior to the agreements, deforestation did not have a statistically significant impact on their purchasing selection. At least some of the deforestation assessed by our models for 2010 and 2011 occurred prior to the agreements; 2012 is the first year we would expect a full response.
