The Institute of Agricultural and Forest Management and Certification - Imaflora - is a civil non-profit association, founded in Piracicaba, in the interior of São Paulo, in 1995.
Born under the premise that the best way to conserve tropical forests is to give them an economic destination, combined with good management practices and responsible management of natural resources.
From this perspective, Imaflora believes that environmental certification is one of the tools that respond to part of the challenge with strong inducer power of local sustainable development in the forestry and agricultural sectors.
Similarly, the Institute seeks to influence the supply chains of products from forest and agricultural sources; contribute to the development and implementation of public policies and, finally, do, in fact, the difference in the regions where it operates, there creating usage models of land and sustainable development that can be replicated in other municipalities, regions or biomes from the country.
Our strategy is distributed in four areas, which are complementary and necessary to achieve our mission and our strategic objectives.
