The sugar cane spirit is a product commercialized worldwide, and in Brazil it ranks in second position among the most consumed alcoholic beverages. And Parana Coast has a long tradition in the production of this beverage, which is among the most requested in the country. Traditionally the industries that produce sugar cane products cause environmental changes in the place where they are inserted, but specifically, the sugar cane spirit industry has few studies that measure these impacts. In this context, in order to promote an evaluation of these industries in Parana coast, a descriptive exploratory research was carried out with six alembic managers between August and September 2016, and the environmental dimension of the CSI (Corporate Sustainability Index) from BM&F BOVESPA (The New Exchange) was used as reference of evaluation. The study revealed that the procedures adopted by the interviewed managers fulfill the prerogatives with regard to the laws and regulations required in the production cycle of artisanal sugar cane spirit in relation to the environmental issue. It was concluded that, although the production processes of artisanal sugar cane spirit in Parana Coast are developed with alternative practices that result in a sustainable environment, with low emission of pollutants, without contamination of rivers and without provoking deforestation, it also do not provoke any other harmful practices which may compromise the quality of nature in the region, but require adjustments in the issues of procedures formalization developed by the companies in which the CSI environmental dimension is recommended.
