In order to analyze the potential impacts on the local fauna and flora, AMG Brazil São João del Rei carried out a study to assess the environmental quality in the area of influence of the company, gathering information on the abundance and diversity of local species.
AMG Brazil São João del Rei has voluntarily preserved a significant vegetation area near the plant, one of the few remaining vegetation fragments in the region. Around the industrial plant, there is a designated reforestation area that is composed mainly of eucalyptus trees. However, the study identified several other native species, indicating that this area is naturally regenerating and diversifying despite being fragmented from other forest areas. The presence of avifauna also indicates a healthy and rich habitat despite the proximity of the forest to an industrial activity.
The study concluded good environmental quality and diversity in the surrounding area, indicating that the AMG Brazil São João del Rei does not negatively affect the local fauna and flora and contributes to the preservation of important forest fragments in the region.
