On June 5, World Environment Day, the Costa Rican Ministry of Environment and Energy honored EARTH University for its environmental efforts.
In the second edition of its Reconocimiento Excelencia Ambiental (Environmental Excellence Recognition), the Ministry awarded public institutions for their achievements in the implementation of the nationwide Programa de Gestión Ambiental Institucional (Institutional Environmental Management Program). Although EARTH is a private institution, the University voluntarily submitted itself for consideration of its leadership in complying with the Program’s regulations.
Organizations can elevate their standing through obtaining carbon neutral certification, implementing new technologies to save water and electricity, precisely measuring consumption, installing solar panels for electricity and water heating, going paperless, employing rainwater-catch systems, maintaining organic greenspaces, and prohibiting single-use plastics and Styrofoam.
Among the public institutions recognized this year were:
Currently, Costa Rican law (No. 8839) requires all public institutions and departments operate with an environmental management system.
