COSTARICA / Costa Rica
Camara de Industrias Costa Rica
Companies use environmental certifications to demonstrate their sustainable practices to consumers, but Costa Rican companies are not taking advantage of certifications to gain competitiveness in the market. We worked with the Cámara de Industrias in San Jose, Costa Rica to determine how companies can effectively evaluate environmental certifications. Our group interviewed company representatives to determine key factors that companies take into account when considering certifications. We created comparison charts to assist companies in deciding which certification to pursue and made recommendations to encourage the implementation of certifications, including an online database, an advertising campaign, and a government incentive program.
