SYKES Costa Rica has been recognized as a leader in environmental practices, holding the Costa Rican government’s five-star Ecological Blue Flag Award for all SYKES facilities in the country, including the Heredia, Moravia, Hatillo Centro, and San Pedro locations. The awards recognize SYKES for using best environmental practices based on the ISO 50001 and ISO 14001 frameworks for environmental and energy management, including certification of carbon neutrality, solar energy generation, rainwater collection and water conservation systems, and other steps to reduce the company’s environmental impact.
SYKES began operating in Costa Rica in 1999 and has more recently increased its environmental sustainability efforts through initiatives such as installing solar panels, facilitating recycling programs, and using eco-friendly products. Along with other SYKES locations, facilities in Costa Rica are running partially on renewable energy. With these programs in place, SYKES Costa Rica has established itself as a leader in creating positive environmental impact within local communities.
