San Jose, Costa Rica
This report, prepared for the International Center for Sustainable Human Development (CIDH) of Costa Rica, includes a review of Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainable Development, Cleaner Production, and Eco-Efficiency, as well as case studies on companies engaging in these practices. We have recommended the Balanced Scorecard with a thorough explanation of its potential as a managerial tool. With guidance from CIDH, companies could implement this tool to accurately record measurements and evaluations for the programs reviewed. We have provided CIDH with information for the development of a training module and recommended three seminars targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises. Educating companies on the importance of Sustainable Development as a vital part of Corporate Social Responsibility, would positively impact Costa Rica both socially and economically.
