The Climate Change Allies Program was born May of 2007 as the first private initiative to offer services for mitigating and compensating CO2 emissions in Costa Rica. This through mechanisms such as Eco Seals for vehicles, working directly with firms and the “Green Your Trip” initiave geared towards the tourism sector.
The main focus of The Climate Change Allies Program is on adapting to climate change. Central America represents a mere 0.5% of global CO2 emissions, however it is one of the 5 most vulnerable areas to climate change. Among the most affected will be water resources, biodiversity, agriculture and the means of living of many communities. For this reason, when the trees are planted to mitigate CO2 emissions, the CCA Program is looking to benefit and protects these critical regions.
Through Ecole Travel you can enjoy your vacation and be part of the CCA Program contributing with the planting and caring for one tree, that will compensate your carbon emissions for local transportation and complete lodging for 14 days. Ask how to Green Your Trip: firstname.lastname@example.org
