Friday, March 4, 2011

The Panama Canal plans to offset their emissions of greenhouse gases and become “carbon neutral” beginning in 2014.

The announcement was made during the “Panama: Where the World Meets,” a conference and advertising campaign held this week and designed to promote investment.

Zubieta said there are plans to reforest 20,000 hectares of plants near the Panama Canal to offset carbon dioxide emissions.
