Brice Lalone has been appointed by the French Government to lead France’s policies in their battle against climate change.
Brice and France’s Environment, Energy & Telecommunications Minister Roberto Dobles traveled to Costa Rica in February of this year, for discussions with the Costa Rican Government on further cooperation in combating climate change. The result of which is that Costa Rica and France have agreed to work together on international climate change projects.
Additionally they have discussed a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol, under which Nations agreed to a series of measures to reduce the world’s green house gases, as this treaty expires in 2012.
Further to meeting with the Government Lalone also met with business like Dole Fresh Fruits and Tabacon, that have acted to lessen their environmental impacts.
Dole has introduced a series of initiatives including training, low energy refrigerated containers, and reduction of fertilizer use.
Tabacón, a resort and spa based around hot springs at the foot of the Arenal Volcano, in northwestern Costa Rica, has compiled an inventory of all the greenhouse gasses emitted from its operations, including the transportation of tourists and company trips and the company is now working to reduce its emissions and compensating the rest through reforestation and conservation of existing forests.
James Cahill Managing Director of Costa Rica invest says “Costa Rica continues to forge ahead with it’s plans to be ranked number 1 worldwide in terms of Environmental Performance. As they continue along this path those investors who have seen the opportunity and invested in Costa Rica at an early stage will reap the rewards as its popularity as a tourist and retirement destination continues to grow.”
Costa Rica Invest specialises in eco-friendly, ethical, high yield investments. All projects are based in the best locations in Costa Rica, consisting of plots of development land with an environmentally friendly angle. Their current development in ‘Di Pacifico Dos’ combines a teak commodity investment traded in USD on plots of land zoned for development. With a double investment in locations where land prices are increasing rapidly, backed by a sound commodity that is constantly ‘growing’, is it any wonder they have so many repeat investors creating wealth naturally?
