PATHWAYS TO CLEANER PRODUCTION

Leaf - Linking EducationWEC has worked in Latin America to prepare current and early career leaders to achieve a sustainable future.  WEC partnered with leading Universities in the US and Latin America to develop and implement an academic-industry model that placed interns in small and medium enterprises in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic & Peru from 2011 t0 2016.
 

This model provided a high-quality but low-cost solution to help small and medium enterprises reduce water usage, energy consumption and related emissions.  While the program prepared future leaders, it also improved environmental performance and compliance with national regulations.

WEC is delighted that our work was recognized in a journal article, Linking Education to Industry: Water and Energy Sustainability in Latin America, that was published in the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences on June 29, 2018.
