Hi Steve, we are working in solar & wind through & our wind operations in the US, but other sources of energy are also needed to help supply the energy the world needs. We're looking to make all types of energy cleaner & better

Hi there, thanks for your support! In Brazil, sugarcane is subject to agroecological zoning regulations by the environmental agencies, which excludes expansion into sensitive biomes such as the Amazon & Pantanal. On day one, the JV will support 10,000+ employees

Hi John, ethanol produced from sugarcane – which this joint-venture will produce - is one of the most carbon-efficient biofuels available globally with life cycle greenhouse gas emissions around 70% lower than conventional transport fuels.

while also exporting the remaining 70% excess power to the local electricity grid. Combined, it’s an efficient and environmentally friendly way of maximising the whole biomass crop 2/2

Sugarcane is higher yielding & requires fewer agricultural inputs. Additionally, all of the sites within the new joint-venture have co-generation biopower facilities which enables the sites to be completely energy self-sufficient, 1/2

Hi Matt, the majority of the joint venture’s sites are located in the southern central states of Sao Paulo, Goias & Minas Gerais, with one each in the state of Tocantins and Mato Grosso du Sul – roughly 1500 KM from the Amazon rainforest

Hi there, sugarcane can grow on land that is not well suited for growing food & in Brazil it is subject to agroecological zoning regulations by the environmental agencies, which excludes expansion into sensitive biomes such as the Amazon & Pantanal

But not all the oil that’s out there will be used & we look for 'advantaged oil' which is low cost / high margin – for example if it’s: - economic to produce - low risk to bring to market, and - lower carbon from an emissions standpoint 2/2

Hi Mark, we continue to explore for better oil because it makes financial & environmental sense. The IEA says the world could still consume nearly 70mbd of oil in 2040 - with oil & gas making up around half the fuel mix - and still be consistent with the Paris goals ½
