Comment on land area
1000000 ha of production intended (http://www.jornalcana.com.br/biosugar-en/raizen-intends-to-reach-1-million-hectares/); situation of land holding unclear: the company's sustainability report (2011/2012, p. 12) mentions 860000 ha of cultivated land but this area seems to belong to different actors because 50% of the company's raw material is supplied by more than 3000 strategic partners (http://en.raizen.com.br/en/raizen/strategic-partnerships ). Area comprises different land investments/posessions by different actors

Overall comment

Overall comment
case needs to be split up - situation of land holding unclear: the 860000 ha in operation belong to different actors because 50% of the company's raw material is supplied by more than 3000 strategic partners (http://en.raizen.com.br/en/raizen/strategic-partnerships ). Therefore, the area comprises different land investments/posessions by different actors, inter alia the acquisitions by the investor's sister company, Radar (# 4574): Raízen has the right of first refusal to lease held by Radar (http://www.mzweb.com.br/cosan2011/web/mobile/conteudo_mobile.asp?conta=44&tipo=38928 )
