Abstract: The objective of this paper is to present a synoptic view of the environmental performance of non-financial Brazilian firms during the period from 2007 to 2012. The seven indicators (environmental management, adopted procedures, information and relationship policy, investments, use of natural resources, waste treatment and additional environmental action), cover a broad environmental spectrum. A major element of the study is to allow, from aggregated values, an overview of the evolution of the indicators in the market and in the sector. The originality of this work is ensured by three factors: 1) the database method, which was developed by the research team; 2) the creation of a benchmark, which made the prospective analysis of highly correlated indicators possible; 3) the possibility of analysis of the firms individually, using the seven indicators to highlight the outcomes of the environmental decisions underway.
