The AMBIO Cooperative participated in the “Workshop for the Exchange of Experiences on Green Carbon”, held in the city of Huatulco (Oaxaca) and aimed to bring together different local actors, to identify the potential for the sale of carbon credits generated in the area and of the tourist activities.
This initiative has been carried out in Huatulco for several years, with the purchase of carbon credits of the Scolel´te Program and with the support of Green My Room in the measurement of the carbon footprint of visitors and the activities Hotel Sector of Huatulco. It is important to note that currently, the hotels promote different sustainable actions, such as: energy efficiency, water management, waste management, as well as offsetting their carbon footprint.
However, one of the interests of the entrepreneurs of this tourist center and the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (CONANP), is that the sales can be allocated in the ejidos and forest areas of the Huatulco National Park Polygon. It is expected that this workshop will generate a process for the development of local markets, with the participation of the communities of the Park.
