CABEI volunteers carry out a reforestation campaign for a greener Panama


Since 2010 to date, the multilateral has planted more than 17,000 trees throughout the region.

Panama City, June 26th, 2023.- In their efforts to build a greener country and aware of the crucial role that forests play in the sustainability of our planet, volunteers from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) in Panama participated in a reforestation activity in the Camino de Cruces National Park, a 10,000 acre area of tropical rainforest and jungle, which is part of the National System of Protected Areas (SINAP).

The activity, which is conducted every year as part of CABEI's Environmental Management System (EMS) and its Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility System (SASC) to offset C02 emissions caused mainly by the consumption of paper as part of its operations, was attended by 35 multilateral employees and their families, who planted 400 saplings.

For more than two decades, the multilateral institution has contributed to the conservation and recovery of the environment internally and externally through volunteer activities in its regional offices.

With this initiative, CABEI once again ratifies its commitment to environmental sustainability and promotes it as a transversal axis throughout its 2020-2024 Institutional Strategy, as a priority to address the challenges faced by the region in terms of climate change.
