Peruvian Government Further Strengthens Position Towards a “Greener” Peru

leave a comment »

greenThe Peruvian Ministry of Environment announced the creation of its new organization “Organismo de EvaluaciĆ³n y FiscalizaciĆ³n Ambiental” (OEFA) which will be responsible for overseeing and sanctioning mining and energy businesses that don’t comply with environmental standards, as Andina via RPP reports.

Starting tomorrow Thursday, January 8, OEFA will be recruiting and hiring in the next three months, and will be ready to open in March 2009.

This new entity is another way in which the Peruvian govenrment continues promoting its commitment in making Peru a “greener” country, including its investments in the next years to protect its tropical rainforests as I mentioned on my earlier post.
