• 250 trees of native species were planted by volunteers of various ages.

San José, June 23, 2023. - A total of 48 Costa Rican volunteers, including employees of the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), their families and friends joined forces to plant 250 trees in the Aguacate Mountains Biological Corridor in San Miguel de San Ramón, in the province of Alajuela.

The reforestation activity, in which various native species such as tucuico, copey, bijarro, among others, were planted, is carried out every year by CABEI in the regions’s countries to offset C02 emissions, mainly caused by the consumption of paper as part of its operations. The initiative is part of the Environmental Management System (EMS) and Corporate Environmental and Social Responsibility (CSR).

The Aguacate Mountains Biological Corridor is an area that provides connectivity between landscapes, ecosystems, and natural habitats, for the preservation of some species, as well as the protection of water resources in properties of Associations that manage the communal water and sewage systems (ASADAS), ecotourism activities, or areas with protection incentives.

As part of its commitment, and in compliance with its Environmental and Social Strategy, to date CABEI has planted a total of 23,050 trees in the region, thus confirming its commitment as the Green Bank of Central America.
