CABEI volunteers reforest Natura Reserve in Nicaragua with 500 trees
• Over the past 12 years, the multilateral bank has planted almost 20,000 trees in the Central American region as part of its Corporate Environmental and Social Responsibility system (SASC, for its acronym in Spanish).
Managua, August 27th, 2022.- With the purpose of contributing to the environment’s care and preservation, around 500 fruit trees were planted by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration’s (CABEI) collaborators joined by their relatives in the Natura Reserve located in the Villa El Carmen area in Nicaragua. This is part of the actions conducted by the multilateral bank through its Corporate Environmental and Social Responsibility system (SASC, for its acronym in Spanish).
During the reforestation day, volunteers acknowledged the importance of contributing to building a healthier and friendlier setting for the environment. This time, trees were planted in the buffer area of the reserve and on strategic points prepared for natural productivity.
“As the Green Bank of Central America, we reaffirm our commitment to preserve the environment, not only through initiatives driven in the country, but also with activities to compensate for the footprint that our day-to-day operations might cause. An example of which is this reforestation activity that we know will contribute to oxygen production and as a home for different species of flora and fauna, among other benefits”, said the executive president of CABEI, Dr. Dante Mossi.
On the other hand, the chief country officer of CABEI in Nicaragua, Carlos de Castilla mentioned: “through these actions we are raising awareness amongst our collaborators and the general public about the importance of protecting our natural resources. This initiative joins the other activities we carry out from the bank”.
