Is coffee’s future carbon-neutral? Costa Rican co-operative will have special place at United Nations Climate Summit in Durban

Friday, December 2, 2011

Some Costa Rican coffee will have a special place at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban, and not just for stimulating the minds of world leaders.

Coopedota, a coffee cooperative based in the coffee-producing Los Santos region south of San José, will be presented at the conference as an example of green innovation in the face of a changing climate.

In March, Coopedota was recognized as the world’s first carbon-neutral coffee producer, a distinction achieved by reducing energy use, improving water consumption practices and generating energy from organic material formerly discarded as waste.
