We worked on energy efficiency and consumption reduction, with initiatives such as the standardization of hours for turning lighting and air conditioning equipment on and off. We encouraged employees to turn off their equipment when they leave their workday. In 2020, organizing a large part of the workforce through telecommuting allowed us to have significant savings in energy consumption. In this way, we are making progress in reducing our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. Likewise, we incorporated self-generation with renewable energy sources, for which we already have solar panels in branches in Honduras and Nicaragua. Honduras: 10 branches and our main office (70% of its consumption comes from the panels). Nicaragua: main office.

Annually, we calculated Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions for our operations in Honduras, analyzing the impact of the measures implemented in terms of energy efficiency and the use of renewable sources.
We generated the inventory that constituted our carbon footprint by applying the “Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol)”,

developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). We reported the direct emissions of scope 1, as well as the indirect emissions of scope 2 and 3, in tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tons CO2eq).
