CBRE|Panama Participated in the “ZERO GARBAGE” Proposed Law Meeting

April 14, 2015

Last March 17, CBRE|Panama participated in the AmCham Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee meeting. Substitute Deputy Alida Spadafora was also present at the meeting and presented the proposed bill that “Establishes the Management of Waste and the Zero Garbage Culture.” The main objective of the meeting was to present the actual handling of garbage in Panama and calling attention to the fact that if regulations governing the matter were not established, the Patacón garbage dump would collapse before its estimated life of 20 years from its inception.

The law deals with the first steps of the Waste Regulations in Panama in all sectors nationally. It must involve private firms, the Government, NGO’s and Civil Society to achieve the goals of reducing garbage sent to the dump by 80% by the year 2050.
On the part of CBRE’s William Holness, who is about to undertake a Master’s Degree focused on International Environment Policies, he has promised to work with the Substitute Deputy to nourish the bill with a technical base and other aspects that may derive from the same. We hope that together they will achieve their goals.

Joselen Cerro, César Montemayor and William Holness participated in the event.
