ÅF awarded environmental education contract in Bolivia
The Bolivian Federation of Industries has chosen the ÅF Group as its partner in an environmental project which will have great significance for the country. In a series of courses aimed at trade and commerce in addition to universities in Bolivia's leading industrial centres, ÅF Group consultants will work together with regional chambers of trade and industry to educate almost 200 people in how to improve the environmental performance of the nation's industries.
The project also includes certain practical undertakings, including the development of environmental plans for specific industries and individual environmental plans for more than 40 major companies.
For the ÅF Group's part, the project, which is part-funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), is worth around SEK 9 million.
Over the past year, the ÅF Group has been involved in environmental projects for industry in more than twenty countries. Half of these projects have been financed by development aid funds. The ÅF Group has been working actively in Bolivia since 1996.
