Case Study on Chile: Clean Production Agreements
This case study (in Spanish) on Clean Production Agreements in Chile was published in July 2019 within the scope of the Community of Practice (CoP) on Private Sector Involvement in Climate Policy Processes.
The Agency for Sustainability and Climate Change (ASCC) is in charge of promoting Clean Production in Chile through the implementation of Clean Production Agreements. CPAs are a public management instrument that seek to promote the implementation of an environmental strategy in companies through the signing of voluntary agreements between companies or groups of companies and the public sector.
The CPAs are presented as an opportunity for companies to increase their competitiveness in a more demanding market and contribute to the sustainable development of each sector. The Cleaner Production strategy promotes the introduction of more efficient technologies, not only in terms of pollution or emissions, but also that impact on greater productivity of companies, reducing costs and risks.
The Community of Practice on Private Sector Involvement in Climate Policy Processes
The Community of Practice on Private Sector Involvement in Climate Policy Processes in Latin America is an initiative of the EUROCLIMA+ Programme, through the German Cooperation Agency GIZ, the Latin American Center for Competitiveness and Sustainable Development (CLACDS) of INCAE Business School and LEDS LAC.
Its objective is to contribute to the development and consolidation of mechanisms to integrate the participation of the private sector in the formulation and implementation of climate policies with a particular focus on the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). To this end, it promotes the exchange of experiences and good practices, joint learning and collaboration to address common challenges, among teams from 9 countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay) made up of representatives of government institutions and private sector organizations that are carrying out initiatives related to this issue.
Within the framework of the CoP, the need was identified to deepen the knowledge of certain country experiences regarding private sector involvement. To this end, case studies have been developed that allow the reader to know about advances in the Latin American region and to collaborate with the climate policy process of each country.
