With income generated from the carbon credits we will be able to continue to provide efficient and longlasting cookstoves to Lao families

 

SNV Laos is very proud and excited to share the news that our Improved Cookstove Programme has successfully been registered with Gold Standard.

 

The Improved Cookstoves programme (ICS), implemented by SNV, Oxfam and ARMI, and funded by the European Union (EU) Switch Asia Programme, marked a milestone in the project recently celebrated a huge milestone after selling its 100,000th cookstove. And now there’s more to celebrate with the international organisation, Gold Standard, recognising the work of the project in and its future potential to reducing carbon emissions.

 

This registration, adding to an increasing list of the programme’s achievements, with the support of Nexus for Development will be able to sell carbon credits to individuals and organisations. The income from these carbon credits will then be put back into the project to ensure its sustainability.
