Environmental Management Plan

A venture the size of Belo Monte HPP demands an environmental management system to control the relationship between its activities, the environment and the communities where they occur, pursuant to society’s expectations. 
This system comprises an organizational structure, planning activities, detailed definition of responsibilities, practices, procedures and processes. 

The structuring of the Environmental Management System, as the main objective of the Environmental Management Plan, occurred during the elaboration of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), considering that the actions of the venture, as well as the social and environmental activities proposed for prevention, mitigation and control, would interfere with local and regional socioeconomic and environmental dynamics.
