Inspo of the Week: Costa Rica

costa rica sustainability decarbonization climate change

Setting an example with their decarbonization plans.


CHOOOSE wants to create a new conversation around climate change! One that is pink and positive rather than green and grumpy. We cheer for people, solutions, businesses, organizations, and actions that help the climate.


In this weekly column, we’ll introduce something or someone that inspires us. It doesn’t matter if it’s new or old, or if it has a large or small impact. It’s anything that encourages climate action because everything counts.


It may be a small country, but Costa Rica has really set an example when it comes to climate action. In February 2019, they announced their plan to achieve ‘zero net emissions’ by 2050. In the article, they state that 98% of the country’s electricity comes from renewables and that it is the transport industry that stands for the largest part of the emissions. We cheer for them, and finger’s crossed that more countries will follow!
