Green Coalitions

Is an initiative that offers a space for the participation of companies in order to jointly develop environmental conservation actions under the principle of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). This program is developed in different parts of the country, among which are some sectors of Panama Canal Watershed, the Santa María Watershed (Veraguas, Coclé and Herrera provinces) and the La Villa watershed (provinces of Herrera and Los Santos).

With Green Coalitions, the participating companies have the opportunity to join the field work that is carried out with community-based organizations, which have executed successful actions with Fundación Natura. The projects that are being carried out have the fundamental purpose to protect water sources in water network riverbeds, in water intakes that fulfill the function of supplying the supply systems of the rural aqueducts of the place where they're located, among others. The components of each project are the result of a joint technical planning with local beneficiaries, responding to the socio-environmental needs that arise in the communities.

Fundación Natura together with the participating companies, has included in this program the holding of voluntary days, in which the companies employees contribute with their time and learn, through practice, about various activities related to the protection of natural resources (establishment of seedbeds, establishment of native trees, coffee plots, etc.) The initiatives carried out with the Green Coalitions Program contribute as mitigation and adaptation measures to the effects of climate change and add to the successful results obtained from projects that have been supported by the funds managed by Fundación Natura during this years of work, in favor of the Natural Heritage of our country.
