COSTARICA / Costa Rica

Abstract

Companies can negatively and positively impact the life of communities in Costa Rica's biological corridors. While biological corridors protect migration paths for species, they also form a network of farms, community centers, and villages whose actions affect the ecosystem of the corridors. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a voluntary way for companies to manage their environmental, social, and economic impacts. The Centro Científico Tropical’s (CCT) goal is to improve its CSR program and positively impact the Costa Rican biological corridors. Through expert interviews and observations in biological corridors, we developed recommendations for the CCT to improve its CSR program to strengthen the economic and social environments of the local communities.
