CABEI obtained a recognition for the implementation of renewable energy in its Costa Rica building.

San José, December 10, 2019.- The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) received the Green Electricity Award as a result of its efficient use and management of renewable electricity generation in its regional building located in Costa Rica's capital.

This new award reinforces CABEI's commitment to the environment and is a welcome addition to all the acknowledgments that accredit its environmental management system, which helps prevent environmental impacts by using the necessary means to avoid, reduce or control such through continuous improvement.

The award was granted by the Company "Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz (CNFL)" of the ICE Group and seeks to motivate its clients to take advantage of the benefits of Costa Rica's electricity matrix powered by renewable sources.

During 2018, CABEI consumed 165,600 kWh of electrical energy from the CNFL distribution network with energy served, according to the CNFL, through national power generation plants that use more than 97.90 percent renewable sources.
