Joaquim Levy: the best carbon capture technology that exists is trees in Brazil
"An advocate of the carbon credit market and Amazon forest preservation agendas, Joaquim Levy understands the importance of consistent policies and the connection between business and the planet's sustainable future. An engineer by training, he was president of the BNDES and secretary of the National Treasury. Today, he is director of Economic Strategy and Market Relations at Banco Safra, keeping an eye on decarbonization projects in Brazil and around the world. In this conversation, he relates his thoughts on the potential of REDD+ projects, how they impact local populations, and signals what to expect from COP 27, as well as on the PL for regulating the market - currently in Congress."
