The paper and cellulose industry uses as a source of raw material wood only from harvested forests, either in one’s own lands or in other people’s cultivated land, through land lease agreement or forest development programs. The present work suggests the use of a method created to evaluate the impacts of technological innovations, the Inova-tec System with modifications, to evaluate the impacts of the ‘Forest Incentive Program (Programa de Fomento Florestal) based on a Eucalyptus monoculture’. The method ‘INOVA-Tec System’ is a system that allows the analysis of: i) the scenario to develop the program, and ii) the performance evaluation of the program, through the analysis of indicators performance. With the data on hands, it is easier for the evaluator to elaborate his/her recommendation list to guarantee a proper culture management and the best impact management, in order to mitigate the potentially problematic characteristics for the environment and for the society.
