On March 19th, 2014, The Presidents of the different sectors that conform the agricultural industry in Guatemala (producers, exporters and agribusinesses) subscribed the Declaration of Environmental Commitment and presented the Environmental Policy that will guide agriculture in the future.

The Environmental Policy is aligned with the strategic efforts that all members of Cámara del Agro have already started to promote the observance of national legislation related to the environment and to a sustainable development of agriculture. It is also aligned with the Corporate Social Responsibility model defined by CACIF–the umbrella entity that organises all private activity in Guatemala.

The launch of this Environmental Policy confirms the commitment that private agriculture has to voluntarily respect the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
