Ficohsa encourages its employees to use energy efficiently, and every year campaigns are socialized with the aim of achieving a reduction in consumption. In 2017 there was an increase of 8% taking into account that in Panama the measurement of energy consumption is carried out at all its operations, (in 2016 the entire operation was not contemplated).
During 2017, a social audit was conducted by visiting each employee’s desk, validating whether, at the end of the working day, computers, monitors, printers or any other electronic devices were on or in hibernation, this practice encourages all employees to make good use of electric power.
The energy supply for the Ficohsa Group companies in Honduras comes from the National Interconnected System managed by the National Electric Energy Company (ENEE).
