Launch of the Sello Colectivo Calakmul Certificate

The Calakmul Biosphere Reserve of the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP), with the technical support of the Project Protection and Sustainable Use of the Selva Maya, of the German Cooperation (GIZ), launched the Sello Colectivo Calakmul certificate (SCC), on May 23, 2019, in the framework of the 30th Anniversary of this Natural Protected Area.

This distinction is granted to local companies that offer products and / or services developed under sustainability criteria, have good governance practices, activate the local economy and act with environmental co-responsibility.

CONANP and GIZ have developed this model for more than three years, based on principles of social and environmental responsibility, assumed by companies that value the richness of the region’s natural resources and implement sustainable businesses.

Why buy products with the SCC? When you buy products or services with this seal, you contribute to the protection and sustainable use of the natural resources and biodiversity of the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, considered one of the most important green lungs in the world. Likewise, you contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, particularly the Objectives: 5. Gender equality, 8. Decent work and economic growth, 12. Responsible production and consumption and 15. Terrestrial ecosystem life.
