Abstract: The present study aims to analyze the environmental certification process in the context of the Agro Industrial System (SAG) of beef production in Brazil through mapping and promulgations. This research become relevant as environmental certifications attest to the implantation of a practical process of environmental management in participating organizations that vision the philosophy of Sustainable Development. Approaches to this qualitative analysis were: Sustainable Development, Environmental Management, Environmental Certification, The Stakeholders Theory and SAG. Semi structured interviews were conducted with those responsible for certification processes in organizations related to agribusiness. Findings show that, in each of these organizations, environmental management was well structured which facilitated the process of certification as most of the requisites had been met economically, environmentally, and socially. It was observed that, in Brazil, the certification process is advancing in the SAG of the beef cattle culture.
