Comments from two members of the Environmental Committee:

Oikocredit's environmental policy allows us to define an institution-wide environmental position for our Project Partners to comply with. This policy, along with the new tool for the evaluation of envionmental impact, means that we can be conscious of both our own environmental impact an that of our Project Partners.

Carlos Natareno, Guatemala

Oikocredit's new environmental policy allows us to align all of our activities with the aim for sustainability, from the projects we finance to operations in our own offices. Sustainable development is a daily challenge that we must face with conscientiousness, effort and innovation. It is vital to attend to if we want present and future generations to have a good quality of life.
