Risk Management in the Green Market

The cracking story about RENOVABIO and the Brazilian sugar and alcohol sector in the biggest greenwashing scandal in history, a fable of greed, arrogance, abuse of economic power, and the certainty of impunity in a country that could be the biggest generator of carbon credits in the world, but has two highly impeding factors: corruption and ignorance. All of this is from the multifaceted and privileged perspective of Patrizia Tomasi-Bensik, a technical expert and member of the UN department on climate change that audits carbon credit certifying entities.


The incipience of the Green Economy favors wrongdoings. However, no greenwashing on the planet has gone as far as the Brazilian government program RENOVABIO.

And it all starts with a law. Evandro Gussi, an elected federal congressman for the sugar and alcohol sector in 2014, proposes a bill that creates a government program where the Brazilian biofuel sector produces carbon credits from absolutely nothing. The problem: the CBIO decarbonization credits are fake, and the RENOVABIO program typifies the crimes of embezzlement, market reserve, and ideological falsehood.

Being guaranteed by two first-line banks, Bradesco and Santander; the largest stock exchange in Latin America, B3; two international certifiers, SGS and Bureau Veritas and renowned academic and research institutions, EMBRAPA, Unicamp, and FGV; the fraud gains contours of legitimacy.

In 2017, the project became law number 13.576/17, and Gussi, ending his only term, was instated president of the largest association of sugar and alcohol producers in Brazil. The expectation of financial return? US$300 billion in 10 years.

Risk Management in the Green Market encompasses false theories related to the eco-sustainability of ethanol, the poisoning of the environment and indigenous children, soil impoverishment, and Amazon deforestation. Above all, the production of biofuels triggers hunger.

What does the book Risk Management in the Green Market answer?

- How to assess potential scandals in the green markets?
- Are biofuels good for the environment?
- What is an example of institutional greenwashing?
- What is Renovabio and why is it an illegitimate program that does not help Brazil's environment?

The book Risk Management in the Green Market assesses:
- Slave labor, Ometto conglomerate, private monopoly, corruption, sugar and alcohol sector, sugar mills, greenwashing, Amazon deforestation
- CADE processes, MPF, PF, MPF, list of politicians sponsored by the sugar-alcohol sector, list of partners of Rubens Ometto
- Additionality, false carbon credits, CBIO, false low GHG emissions, collusion of powerful banks and Santander, Bradesco, B3, MME, Ministry of Economy, EMBRAPA, FGV, SGS, BV, Unicamp, and ANP
- Dismantling the false theories relating ethanol to sustainability, manipulation, and overthrowing the value of false CBIO carbon credits. The book has elements that prove the falsity of RENOVABIO, elements that prove the practice of ideological falsehood, market reserve, and embezzlement, crimes that are being practiced now, in Brazil, with the Renovabio program
- Market reserve, control of anti-trust institutions, control of the media narrative, control of politicians, embezzlement, misrepresentation, market reserve

- The arrogance on the part of the Brazilian sugar and alcohol sector and the government, banks Santander and Bradesco, B3, EMBRAPA, FGV, SGS, BV, and Unicamp, in creating a program that generates false carbon credits. A totally bogus program that distorts the principles of eco-sustainability.
- Abuse of economic power through the corruption of politicians and scientists sponsored by the sugar and alcohol sector, such as EMBRAPA, FGV, SGS, BV Unicamp

- Soil impoverishment, the issue of vinasse, monoculture, the destruction of family agriculture, methane production, slave labor, and risks to the indigenous population
- Example of promoting the False Consensus Effect in the green market
- Social injustice through the production of biofuels
- If cigarettes cause cancer, ethanol also kills, via hunger, pollution, and destruction of the environment
- The exposition of the absurdities related to ethanol being sustainable, which assesses the irrational exuberance of the sugar and ethanol sector
- The detailed exposure of the criminal program Renovabio and its false CBIO carbon credits, with the aim of embarrassing those involved, to the point of putting an end to the scheme
- The tactics of the sugar-alcohol producer the sense of destroying those who oppose it
- Renovabio is a classic example of exploiting idiocracy, as in the 2006 film Idiocracy, as it puts pressure on political correctness, where people unfamiliar with the complexity of the green market do not realize its illegality
- Soil nitrification, and the extinction of familiar agriculture being obscured by the image of sustainability. Responses from the ANP, defending the criminal program Renovabio and its fake CBIO carbon credits
- Biofuels are bad for Nature and the sugar and ethanol sector is still creating a government program, Renovabio, which generates false carbon credits, the CBIO, on the myth of green, which is nothing but greenwashing
- The ANP and the MME (official Brazilian government agencies) are deeply involved with the sugar and alcohol sector in a government program that they themselves recognize was invented
- The fallacy propagated by the sugar and alcohol sector that claims that biofuels are the solution to climate change
- As the sugar and alcohol sector, allied to the Ministry of Economy, the MME, the ANP, EMBRAPA, FGV, SGS, BV, and Unicamp create a myth around the sustainability of the criminal program Renovabio and its false CBIO carbon credits, saying that they are lines and types of agriculture that do not compete with food
- Alerts the financial market about the proximity of the outbreak of an Enron in Brazil
- Exposes crimes against people, the environment, and the financial market, harming the consolidation of the green market in Brazil
