Costa Rican Green Building Council:  Recently formed in 2008, The Green Building Council of Costa Rica (GBCCR) is a nonprofit organization that certifies sustainable businesses, homes, hospitals, schools, and neighborhoods. GBCCR is dedicated to expanding green building practices and education. This is a good place to start additional research.
