Azevedo Denise Barros, Pedrozo Eugênio Ávila, Silva Tânia Nunes and Malafaia Guilherme Cunha*

Environmental management is a typical multidisciplinary subject. The stakeholders theory involving multiple actors and their interests, is therefore, a multidimensional phenomenon, together, they form a complex and systemic context. With this tripartite relation, the agribusiness organization must insert this logic in its decision process in order to consolidate itself in a competitive and dynamic environment. In agribusiness, the concern is not limited only to the organizations, but with several productive partnerships such as chains, networks, clusters and alliances. The article intends to present the complexity approach through a systemic viewpoint. It is based on the second law of thermodynamics as articulator of all the themes mentioned regarding environmental management and stakeholders.
