The Belmont Group brings together a set of independent businesses in the mining, construction, real estate and agriculture sectors.
The companies Belmont Esmeraldas – associated with Precious Brazil, an initiative of the Brazilian Institute of Gems and Precious Metals (IBGM) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil) – Belmont Agregados, Itamix, Belpar and Belmont Agropecuária form the Group , which is headquartered in Itabira (MG) and operates in other cities in Minas Gerais and in the international market.
Each business is managed according to the challenges of its segment, with its own business vision and strategies. What connects companies and unites teams are the management principles and values common to the entire Group, such as sustainability.
The concept of sustainability is based on meeting the needs of current generations, without compromising the scenarios designed for future generations. Therefore, it needs to consider the so-called sustainability tripod, formed by the intersection of social, environmental and economic perspectives, which are part of the Belmont Group’s management principles.
In addition to practicing safe and careful management of its resources, be they financial, equipment and other assets, the Belmont Group has a solidary look at the community and participates in programs such as the Seedling Nursery, Environmental Education and Wildlife Monitoring.

Located at Fazenda Belmont, since 2001 the Viveiro de Mudas has been involved in the rehabilitation of areas and produces ornamental species for landscaping and humanization of the various facilities of the Group, in addition to serving environmental education.
The rescue of the local flora involves the collection of seeds and seedling preparation. In addition, when some suppression of native vegetation is necessary, the team removes plant specimens from their place of origin and replants them in ecologically similar areas.
Belmont promotes environmental education and interpretation activities and recreation in contact with nature, both for its employees and for the local community.
In the last two years, the 58 actions carried out, including lectures, workshops, events and meetings, served an audience of approximately 2,600 people, to awaken in them the idea of change and belonging in relation to the environment and, thus, provoke new habits and conscious use of natural resources.
The Fauna Monitoring Program considers three faunal groups – Avifauna, related to birds; Herpetofauna, related to frogs, snakes and lizards and the Mastofauna related to mammals. Conservation practices occur in such a way that the quality of life and well-being of the local fauna is guaranteed and improved. Thus, biological diversity is also ensured.
The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil) works to promote Brazilian products and services abroad and attract foreign investment to strategic sectors of the Brazilian economy. The Agency carries out diversified trade promotion actions, such as prospective and trade missions, business roundtables, support for Brazilian companies to participate in major international fairs, and visits by foreign buyers and opinion makers to learn about the Brazilian production structure.
