The BMV Program was conceived through the collaboration of people, institutions and rural communities searching for sustainability standard that would consistently align environmental, social and economic factors and result in a sustainable action plan in their area of influence, focusing on valuing the work of men living in the rural areas.
It is an alternative solution for the hunger and inequality that are most commonly associated with the reduction of environmental problems that humanity has experienced of late, as it proposes development of regions that have significant portions of their areas dedicated to productive rural properties and forests.
The BMV entails the structuring of Development Centers consisting of rural units that are made up in part by preserved forests and in part by agricultural and livestock production. Also included with the Center are the Local Development Poles, which include factory, infrastructure, and services units that altogether complete the structure necessary for economic and social development of the areas of influence of the Program.
All rural units involved in productive activities will be affected through investments in technology and owners or inhabitants’ qualification, resulting in augmented productivity, substantial increase in production and improved product quality, focusing on food security, delivering products that are traceable and in environmental compliance. Always respecting the environmental, economic and social development tripod.
The Program is governed by an internationally recognized methodology known as BMV Standard, which determines the rules, procedures and methods to be followed in its application.
