1 1 Sustainable Consuption and Production: The Costa Rican Experience A joint effort of the Chamber of Industry of Costa Rica, CEGESTI y Technological Institute of Costa Rica with the support of the Swiss Government

2 2 Costa Rica San Andrés RepúblicaDominicana Nicaragua El Salvador Honduras Panamá Costa Rica EstadosUnidos México Guatemala Belice Population: 4,000,000 Extension: 51,100 Km 2

3 3 Before the NCPC Central American EcoDesign Project executed by CEGESTI and Technological Institute of Costa Rica with the support of Delft University  5 Case Studies in Costa Rica Food Industry Metalmechanic Ornamental Plants exports Furniture  Training workshops on the EcoDesign methodology  Industrial Design degree at the ITCR

4 4 Case: EcoDesign CEGESTI and ITCR carried out the Central American EcoDesign Project with the support of Delft University Benefits: 20% reduction of polyethylene in secondary packaging. 3% reduction in primary packaging less cardboard boxes per year.

5 5 NCPC Era  Awareness raising on Sustainable Consumption as part of the promotion of CP  Training of government officials, academics and technicians from companies in EcoDesign, LCA and Sustainable Consumption  EcoDesign  LCA using the EMIS Software tool  Improving Competitiveness and decision making using LCA  Sustainable Consumption and Production Workshop  Development of a National CP Policy that includes Sustainable Consumption and Production concepts

6 6  Special Project development:  National Material Handling Report (2002)  LCA of BioDiesel Production from Palm Oil (2003)  LCA and EcoDesign in the Plastic Industry (2004)  Residual and Industrial By-Products Market – MERSI (2004)  Sustainable Consumption as part of the CP – IPA’s  Several CP Options identified in more than 50 enterprises with an IPA have Sustainable Consumption objectives NCPC Era

7 7 National Material Handling Report Management Instrument Based in a study of material flow December 2002

8 8 Opportunities founded in Costa Rica Many material do not have alternative chanels Options may exist for materials with present channels It may identify new neaches for environmental enterprises in Recuperation, Recycling and Reintegration Country needs Management Instruments Policy Instruments Stakeholder dialogue Integrated Product Policy (IPP) and Extended Producer Responsability (EPR)
