In just the first half of 2017, Costa Rica has reached a new record in clean energy production.
During the first six months of the year, 99 percent of Costa Rica’s electricity came from renewable sources, according to data from the National Energy Control Center (CENCE).
In the last 30 years, renewable sources such as wind, geothermal, solar and hydroelectric have been responsible for the production of nearly 93 percent of Costa Rica’s energy, but this July they broke their own record.
With a goal to be the first carbon neutral country in the world by 2021, sustainable practices can be observed in every region of the country, across all industries, adopted by all citizens and embraced by visitors.
It’s clear that sustainability is embedded deeply in the culture and traditions of Costa Rica.
