BDMG’s actions are guided by respect for the environment and support of practices and projects which promote sustainable development in Minas Gerais. This development goes beyond the economic aspect. This is why the Bank encourages and sponsors culture, citizenship and socio-environmental responsibility in Minas Gerais in many different ways.
The Bank prioritizes supporting companies which have a strong socio-environmental concern, in addition to counting on a strict process of environmental and social assessment of their operations.
BDMG has a specific unit responsible for providing sustainability orientation. The Innovation Support Group seeks to reinforce partnerships and supply financial instruments which allow the funding of projects with a strong focus on social and environmental preservation issues.
BDMG enters into international partnerships to fund projects of major socio-environmental impact, such as the agreements signed with the French Development Agency (AFD) to finance projects of municipal infrastructure involving climate issues and the universalization of basic services.
