Dole Offsets Transport of Bananas and Pineapples in Costa Rica

pineapple_banana4.jpgDole says that its operating division in Costa Rica will purchase carbon offsets from the Costa Rican Government’s program in amounts equal to the carbon dioxide emissions generated by the inland transport of Dole produced bananas and pineapples.

The announcement is part of a broader agreement Dole signed last August with the Government of Costa Rica’s Ministry of the Environment and Energy and the National Strategy for Climate Change to produce a carbon neutral supply chain for bananas and pineapples. Costa Rica is seeking to become carbon neutral by 2021.

Under the accord, the National Forestry Financing Fund will offer Dole carbon credits from government-certified forestry projects that will annually sequester an equivalent amount of carbon from the atmosphere as that emitted by fthe transportation.
