Cafe Britt´s operations in Costa Rica have been certified as carbon neutral by the Government of Costa Rica. This means that the Company measures its carbon dioxide (CO2) emmissions into the atmosphere, and that it has implemented reduction plans to become more efficent and eco-friendly. Furthermore, it means that the amount of emmissions that could not be eliminated, has been compensated using Costa Rican “carbon bonds”. Costa Rica has been a global innovator in the “Payment for environmental services”, a national system dedicated to the conservation of specific public interest lands that have been preserved in the long term. Café Britt contributes to preserve lands in the Guanacaste province through this system. The Company expects that other countries set up similar plans so that its operations in more countries could also obtain the Carbon Neutral status.
