Maderas is committed to growing it’s business, but also improving the sustainability of it’s community and environment. We recently led an intiative to plant 10,000 trees in our local community. The whole company and their families came out to help out.
Nicaraguan has set goals of 75 percent renewable energy by 2017 and 90 percent by 2020.
According to last year's report from IRENA, from 2006 to 2012, 15 percent of Nicaragua's electricity came from wind, 16 percent from geothermal, 12 percent from hydropower and 7 percent from biomass.
ProNicaragua puts the latest wind estimates at 20 to 30 percent of total electricity generation. And the country has barely begun to tap into its solar potential.
Parque Industrial Las palmeras is an Eco-Friendly park that saves and reuses rainwater throughout the year. Maderas is part of a collective of companies that together have vowed to improve the sustainability of it's surrounding cities.
Every year, Maderas Collective plants 10,000 trees to further it’s commitment with sustainability.
