    Costa Rican officials support the hospitality industry’s sustainability strategy and created the Sustainable Tourism Certificate, or CST, program to rate the environmental and social contributions of tourism businesses.

    The CST measures the environmental friendliness of a company, awarding a rating of 1 to 5, but granting leaves instead of the traditional stars used in the hospitality industry.

    Currently, 29 hotels have received “five-leaf” ratings in Costa Rica for their sustainability programs, meaning that their operations have nearly no environmental impact and are socially responsible.
