With this activity, CABEI raises awareness regarding natural resource care.


Tegucigalpa, June 25, 2019.- Volunteers of the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), held their ninth reforestation event at mount El Picacho in partnership with the National Parks Foundation.

Last Saturday thanks to the collaboration of a group of volunteers and their families with the help of technicians from the foundation, 500 trees were planted with the aim of preserving green areas for a healthier and more environmentally friendly city.

The activity was carried out within the framework of World Environment Day in order to compensate the environmental footprint generated by the consumption of paper in the Bank's internal operations. To date, more than 17,000 trees have been planted in vulnerable areas affected by the climate change phenomenon in the Central American region.

For several years, CABEI has been carrying out initiatives that seek to raise the awareness of employees and inhabitants of the region, in addition to contributing to improved environmental care.

CABEI's commitment to the environment
CABEI's environmental and social policy reaffirms its solid commitment to the environment and its efforts to contribute to a streamlined and sustainable region.

The Bank's commitment is extremely ambitious; last year, it started an Environmental Management System at its headquarters in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard, which allows controlling environmental aspects and impacts caused by the Institution's daily activity.

Internally, the bank seeks to streamline sources of consumption such as water, paper, green areas, transportation access, alternative means and recycling. In addition, between 15% and 20% of the energy used in the building comes from solar energy.
