Why did we choose this project?
The installation of a biogas digester to handle animal manure does not only reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but it also helps to improve rural living conditions in many different ways. After switching to biogas, the households’ disposable savings increased 40% due to saved energy and fertilizer expenditures, higher agricultural output, etc.
What is my impact?
Each cookstove system built will be able to reduce 2 tons of carbon emission per year, with an average lifetime over 10 years with proper use and care. To date, this project has built cookstoves for 395,435 rural households and have reduced over 6 million tons of carbon emissions.
How do we verify the impact?
This project has been independently verified in accordance with the Gold Standard for Global Goals. You can view at anytime the public project page and offset credit retirement history here.
