Given the multidisciplinary characteristics of environmental issues, the Environment Committee’s main goal is to generate debate and allow exchange experience about current environmental trends of interest to a very varied group – companies, lawyers, financial institutions and environmental consultants. No less importantly, the Committee also aims to support ongoing development of sustainable business between the UK and Brazil.
Its events are an excellent networking opportunity, where members and other private sector representatives can interact and exchange experiences at meetings that are often attended by public sector officials, encouraging interactions with different points of view. In 2020, among other issues, we will continue to focus on the challenges of the Environmental Agenda over the next several years, the important role the private sector has to play on it, the latest news on managing contaminated areas and planned changes in environmental licensing.

We are focused on driving debate and sharing best practices between Brazil and the UK, combining companies’ long standing experience with robust insights produced by academic and corporate knowledge.

In 2020 the committee will continue to expand its activities, attracting new members to be a part of the debate of related themes and it will be involved in organising events in a variety of formats (periodic meetings, seminars etc.).

The International Trade and Investments Committee‘s ambitious goal is to become a hub for meetings and information on international trade and investment, organising in-depth and objective discussions on fair sustainable trade. The committee’s guests are some of the foremost specialists in their respective areas, giving associates an opportunity to learn more about current issues and market requirements so they can be addressed directly with relevant government bodies. The goal in this case is to influence and support growth of Brazilian trade, expand cooperation, increase trade ties between the two countries and attract UK investment to Brazil. The committee also plans to be a networking platform for its members, associates and the general public.
