Institutional Relations

Institutional and governmental relations for natural resource production chains

In view of the impact of political and administrative decisions in the business environment, companies are no longer able to act reactively.

Federal, state and local authorities often create technical standards and regulations that could interfere with the mineral sector, including general technical standards, local regulations, laws on land use and land parceling, transportation, work safety, creation of an environmental conservation unit, as well as general mineral and environmental standards.

  • Numerous stalled bills have returned to the National Congress.
  • City council chambers have taken on a similar stance.
  • Environmental bodies constantly review environmental licensing standards.
  • Environmental communities and non-governmental organizations have become more powerful.
