Cookstoves as a carbon offset


Introducing Forward Financing of Climate Carbon Projects

Due to the widespread use of open fires for cooking in developing nations, approximately four percent of global energy consumption is attributed to this practice. The impact on climate change is significant as open fires emit not only CO2 but also substantial amounts of soot, a major contributor to global warming. Mitigating soot emissions is crucial in the fight against climate change.

Moreover, the utilization of wood and other biomass for cooking contributes significantly to deforestation and desertification. In many developing countries, cooking on open fires stands as the primary driver of these environmental challenges.Strict guidelines have been established for measuring CO2 reduction from efficient and clean cookstoves, requiring annual verification of continued use through sampling. Experience demonstrates that each cookstove typically reduces at least one ton of CO2 annually.
