Campo Group was established in 1978 with the initial goal of developing the agricultural potential of the Brazilian Cerrado region. Throughout its 40 years of existence, the company has always employed highly qualified and experienced professionals to work on projects both in Brazil and abroad. CAMPO has been gaining national and international prominence by promoting social and economic development in the sustainable tropical agriculture sector.
CAMPO, always in tune with the challenges of our times, seeks to properly fulfill its corporate commitment of contributing to environmental conservation. In order to achieve this, CAMPO works in a socially responsible manner, in service of generations both present and future. Thusly, our services are rendered whilst keeping in mind the correct use of soil and water, following the principles of sustainable agriculture while keeping the world’s food security into perspective.
The Casa do Cerrado Foundation has existed since 1996, when the Emperor of Japan
visited Brasilia and inaugurated the Foundation as part of an initiative to develop
agriculture in the Brazilian Cerrado. Soon afterwards, part of the Foundation’s physical
space underwent adaptations to include facilities for seedling reproduction, and the
Foundation became a center for the dissemination of knowledge about conservation.
The Casa do Cerrado Foundation has a garden known as the “Japanese Garden”,
which was built especially for the Emperor. In this garden, you will find the “Stone ofPeace”, a gift from the Emperor himself, brought all the way from Hiroshima, as well as
over 500 varieties of typical Cerrado plants.
Through the Casa do Cerrado Foundation, CAMPO supports all the work that has been
carried out in the Cerrado region to preserve native species by raising awareness in
public and private schools about the importance of the Cerrado region’s fauna and
flora, as well as teaching respect for the environment.
