Costa Rica moderates stance on climate

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Costa Rica appears to be distancing itself from an ambitious goal to become the world’s first carbon neutral country by 2021, according to a statement from Casa Presidencial laying out the country’s U.N. Climate Change Summit in Paris proposal presented Monday.

The proposal said that Costa Rica strives to be an example to other countries that seek to reduce the carbon footprint of their economy but mentions the 2021 deadline only as an “aspiration.”
