Costa Rica Develops Green Building Council

With 5% of the World’s Biodiversity on just 0.01% of its’ land surface, Costa Rica is arguably one of the richest countries on the planet.  (Rich in Biodiversity, that is.)

Of course, this has led the country to becoming a leader in Eco-Tourism, and a top destination for many foreign tourists.

With this in mind, Costa Rica has now developed its own chapter of the Green Building Council.

This chapter can provide LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) education and certification to developers and realtors throughout the country.  It will be a monumental step in the direction towards positive sustainable development.  Costa Rica, Brazil, and Mexico are currently the only countries within Latin America to undertake the development of Green Building Councils.
