We go to great lengths to ensure that the projects from which we purchase carbon credits meet the very highest international standards so that we know the reductions in carbon emissions are real, unique, permanent and most importantly would not have happened without the project being developed (visit How we choose our projects).
We also assess the projects by their contribution to the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This provides an international blueprint that recognizes that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Our portfolio of current projects comprises seven carbon reducing initiatives across India, Brazil, China, Indonesia, Zambia, the United States and Mexico.
And behind each project is a remarkable story of human progress enabled by your efforts to tackle carbon.
Forests play a crucial role in our changing climate. Worldwide, they absorb up to 2.4 billion metric tons of carbon each year.
The member countries of the United Nations have committed to substantially reducing waste generation by 2030 through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
The United Nations has committed to double smallholder productivity and incomes by 2030, as part of efforts to end hunger and achieve food security.
The project supports the installation of robust, locally appropriate biogas plants
The Biogas CDM Project activity aims to install 18,000 biogas plants (digesters) of 2m3 capacity each for single households
Each project includes approximately 13,800 improved cook stoves which translates into a reduction of 40,000 tCO2e per year
The project aims to protect the Rufunsa Conservancy, a 38,781 hectare area
