World's first decarbonised society.

Costa Rica’s new president has announced a plan to ban fossil fuels and become the first fully decarbonised country in the world.

"Decarbonisation is the great task of our generation and Costa Rica must be one of the first countries in the world to accomplish it, if not the first," Mr Alvarado said.

Costa Rica already generates more than 99 per cent of its electricity using renewable energy sources, but achieving zero carbon transport quickly - even in a country well-known for its environmental commitment - will be a significant challenge, experts say.
