“Reduce Your Corporate-Carbon Footprint” is the first voluntary state program for carbon footprint management at the organizational level in the Republic of Panama.

Ana Him, climate change analyst at the Ministry of the Environment, explained that “this first year the program will be piloted, which establishes a standardized process to identify, calculate, report and verify the carbon footprint within the operational limits of organizations public, private and civil society that are legally constituted in the national territory.

He stressed that “during the registration process, disclosure workshops were held open to the public and in the same way, work was done in conjunction with national business associations such as the National Association of Reforesters and Allied Workers of Panama (ANARAP), the Industrial Union of Panama (SIP ), SUMARSE, Headquarters of Multinational Companies (SEM) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MIRE) to provide its members with general information about the program and motivate them to join.

The program was launched on April 22 and from that date until June 22, those interested registered through the platform https://rth.miambiente.gob.pa/.

The next steps include various training and capacity-building workshops, the organization’s carbon footprint report, and the delivery of awards at the beginning of 2022.
