ENVIRONMENTAL Compensation

Since ministerial agreement No. 31 of March 21, 2014, FIAES has become the ideal mechanism to comply with the environmental compensation measures dictated by the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) in the environmental evaluation processes.

The environmental compensation is the set of mechanisms that the State and the population can adopt according to the law to replace or compensate the inevitable impacts caused by their presence in the environment and these can be carried out directly or through specialized agents. 

This is intended to produce a positive effect equivalent to a negative effect caused by the development of investment projects in the environment.  

A través de las compensaciones ambientales se contribuye a la preservación de los ecosistemas, garantizando la producción de agua, oxígeno, alimento y conservación de la biodiversidad.
