Strengthen the reputation of Brazilian industries in the international environmental and sustainability agenda
The Brazilian industry has been seeking to expand its access to foreign markets through negotiations in trade agreements and by joining international organizations, thus aiming to remove tariff and non-tariff trade barriers and to act mutually in the face of global environmental challenges.
Brazil's adherence to international instruments promotes the creation of a more favorable business environment, with legal certainty, and encourages the efficient use of natural resources.
Brazilian environmental policies converge with the main international instruments related to the environment, by bringing the sustainable use of natural resources as a driver of economic and social development, through an advanced and comprehensive environmental legislative framework.
Brazil still faces some major challenges, such as the effectiveness of the economic instruments provided for in environmental policies. The importance of these instruments is notorious, both for the private sector, since they will serve as an incentive for the development of technologies that allow greater flexibility for the effective compliance with environmental policies, and the government, with regard to funding and environmental programs.
The challenge for both developing and developed countries is to achieve a low-carbon recovery based on long-term recovery policies that respect regional differences (common but differentiated responsibilities).
The Brazilian National Confederation of Industry (CNI), through its Executive Management of Environment and Sustainability (Gemas), defends the implementation of the commitments adopted by Brazil in a transparent manner, with broad participation of the productive sector, as well as proposes solutions for the sustainable development of the Brazilian industry, seeking to make it more competitive in the international stage.
CNI is the main organization representing Brazilian industry. Its challenge is to increase the competitiveness of Brazilian industry by influencing the policy environment. To this end, it engages in policy dialogue with Congress, the federal government and the judiciary.
