WEC Closes Cleaner Production Partnership Private Sector Project in San Salvador

This month the World Environment Center celebrated the successful completion of its project “Cleaner Production Private Sector Partnerships,” funded by the U.S. Department of State in Guatemala and El Salvador. Thirty eight companies participated in the project to receive technical assistance resulting in a combined total savings of over $425,000 in 18 months. As part of the CAFTA-DR's Private Sector Environmental Performance Program, the U.S. Department of State funded WEC to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in both Guatemala and El Salvador save money and protect the environment by strengthening business processes, decreasing waste and natural resource usage, and increasing savings and efficiencies. A final report on the successes and lessons learned from the project will be released in Fall 2010. Please contact WEC if you are interested in receiving more information.
