CABEI achieves ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Certification in its Guatemala office and reaffirms its commitment to promote environmental mitigation actions


This achievement positions CABEI as a regional leader in sustainability, reducing its impact on the environment and projecting itself towards a greener future with the advancement of certification in its offices.

Guatemala City, May 17, 2024.- Aligned with its environmental and social commitment, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) obtained the Environmental Management System certification under the international regulation ISO 14001:2015 covering the operational and administrative operations carried out at its Guatemala office.

The main objective of this regulation is to provide organizations with a reference framework to protect the environment and respond to changing environmental conditions, in balance with socioeconomic needs. This is achieved through the management, control and mitigation of environmental aspects and impacts associated with their activities.

The accreditation was obtained after a rigorous audit of the bank's Environmental Management System (EMS), which covers both the administration and operational activities of the office. This system monitors critical elements, such as the consumption of energy and water resources, as well as the generation of waste in internal practices, which add value to the office's environmental performance.

CABEI's environmental commitment in Guatemala comes to life through tangible actions promoted by its employees, which extend beyond the workplace and even into their own homes, demonstrating a comprehensive responsibility for sustainability that includes everything from the separation of trash and solid waste to reforestation campaigns to offset the impact caused by paper consumption in the office.

The scope of the Environmental Management System includes the CABEI offices in Honduras (Headquarters) and the regional offices in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, and will soon be extended to the Costa Rica office.
