The program aims at the constant exchange of information on activities and needs of stakeholders, enabling consensus decision making, where the demands of the local are weighted equally to the arguments in favor of economic development.
    This plan directs the strategic convenience for all parties involved, in a frank and open dialogue in which various interests should be considered in the search for points of convergence.

    • • Environmental Education Programs.

    The Environmental Education Program is an essential tool for improving quality of life. The Environmental Education encourages the full and conscious citizenship and promotes the recovery and the emergence of new values such as environmental responsibility. It also provides access to information about the environment, creating conditions to reflect on the causes and effects of degradation, allowing the change in citizen behavior and, consequently, attitudes aimed at sustainability.

  • • Development of projects and studies on transit and transport, including:

    • • Report on Impact on Circulation - RIC;

    The Report on Impact on Circulation seeks to offer to those involved in the licensing process a frame of reference that enables them to understand and evaluate the intensity of potential impacts on the deployment of new development in the road system, traffic and transport in their area of influence.

Receipt and Control of Non-domestic Wastewater Program (PRECEND), Phases A and B, COPASA / MG;
The PRECEND presents a better environmental alternative for the final release of effluents generated by enterprises. The sewage generated in the cities may be of domestic origin and /or of non-domestic source. Non-domestic sewage are considered as all those which have different characteristics of wastewater generated in a residence, according to the characteristics of the production process, and materials used in the establishment cleaning.
Thus, COPASA receives effluent other than domestic in its public sewer system and forwards them along with the domestic wastewater treatment plants, provided that the discharge standards, which have been established by the concessionaire, are met.
The Technical Design is made in two parts (A and B). In part A,  a characterization of the establishment is performed, as well as of the production processes, a sewage system inventory and the proposition of the sampling plan, aimed at qualitative and quantitative characterization of non-domestic wastewater generated in the company. In this phase of the project the current status of the sewage system of liquid waste is also presented, with the aim of defining the location of sampling points.
In part B, the sampling plan implementation is shown, the rationale and design adequacy or pretreatment of wastewater, and the plan for self-monitoring. The adequacy of project design, if necessary, will depend on the results of laboratory and field tests, performed in the company’s effluents.
