Ruta 27 obtains the distinctive Blue Flag for the seventh consecutive year and obtains the maximum score!

For the seventh consecutive year, our Ruta 27 Concession in Costa Rica, has obtained the distinctive Blue Flag in the Climate Change category, obtaining the highest possible score, translating into five white stars, one silver star, and one green star. Route 27, how much since 2016 with this badge, also being the first and only highway in the country to achieve it.

This award represents a significant recognition of the commitment and efforts made by our team to reduce and mitigate the environmental impact of our activity. Thus, there are multiple actions implemented from Ruta 27 for the efficient management of waste, the use of rainwater, and the reduction of water, electricity, fuel, and paper consumption, among others.

In addition to this, Ruta 27 counts with programs focused on animal rescue, recycling and fertilizer production through composting, it is immersed in the gradual substitution of its vehicle fleet to electric vehicles, and it promotes environmental education campaigns both internal and external to the company. An example of this are the environmental volunteering initiatives that are carried out every year, such as the cleaning of the beach, lakes and reforestation activities.

Ruta 27 also acts as an actor that promotes strategic alliances for the environment with other companies. Thus, thanks to these synergies, Ruta 27 is working on a program for the use of non-recyclable plastic that users discard on the route to convert it into raw material for the manufacture of signaling poles and asphalt; Another example of these collaborations is the program through which the old asphalt that is removed from the road in our pavement renovation campaigns is donated to the municipalities, for its reuse to improve cantonal roads.

In the words of Jonathan Rojas, Quality Director at Ruta 27:Operating with the highest quality standards and always in a sustainable way and protecting the environment is part of our DNA. […] It fills us with great satisfaction to receive this recognition because it is the award for our daily efforts and the desire to do things well for the company and the country”.


Congratulations to the entire Ruta 27 team for this new recognition that once again demonstrates our outstanding commitment to sustainability!
