Costa Rica is seeking to become the first carbon neutral country by 2021. As part of this goal, businesses and organization that operate in Costa Rica will be required to produce GHG inventories or face monetary penalties. The original goal of this project was to produce a complete greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory, as defined by the international standards of ISO 14064, of the organic coffee farm known as La Bella Tica located in Alto San Luis, Costa Rica. After extensive research, it was found that the specific equations for calculating GHG emissions are not readily available to the public and a complete report was not possible. This report seeks to fill the information gap, and provide an overview of the standards as well as the process for obtaining certification for carbon neutrality in Costa Rica.
