Ambassador Luis E. Arreaga participated in a tree planting event organized in conjunction with the Auxiliary Mayor’s Office of Zone 16. This planting responds to the commitment of each mission of the United States around the world, to respect the environment with a Green Policy that contributes to optimize natural resources and protect them.
As part of that commitment, we will work to certify our new embassy as one of the first LEED buildings in Guatemala. This certification will guarantee strict compliance with efficient construction standards that respond to the protection of the environment with energy savings, optimization of waste, reduction in water consumption and reduction in CO2 emissions.
We thank the children and young people who participate in the Access program of the State Department and students of the Rural Mixed Official School No2195 Montesano, who joined the actions of conservation of the environment in their city.
