When each project begins, Furnas carries out social, environmental and engineering surveys involving the rivers, forests, animals, roads and infrastructure in the local region and focusing especially the families and properties in the area where the project will be implemented.

The Basic Environmental Project (BEP) includes a variety of environmental projects which will be implemented in an attempt to mitigate possible impacts caused by the company's activities. All of these programs are integrated into the Environmental Management System (EMS), which is used to coordinate, oversee and support proper implementation of all proposed environmental activities.
