COSTARICA / Costa Rica
Chamber of Industries in Costa Rica
Environmental indicators help companies monitor, evaluate, and mitigate their environmental impacts, but not all companies in Costa Rica make effective use of these tools. We worked with the Cámara de Industrias (CICR) in San Jose, Costa Rica to better understand the benefits, barriers, and best practices associated with the use of environmental indicators in Costa Rica. Our group interviewed and surveyed environmental experts and company representatives to determine specific applications of environmental indicators for Costa Rican companies. We developed a workbook to allow companies to easily track their environmental data using indicators, and we proposed recommendations to assist CICR in promoting the use of environmental indicators among their member companies.
