What the impacts of our climate project?
The Household Biogas project provides families in rural Vietnam with clean, renewable and affordable energy by subsidising the building of biogas digesters in local households. The biogas digesters use the waste from each household’s livestock to produce biogas, which is then burnt to generate clean, reliable and cost-effective energy for cooking, lighting and hot water.
Through our partners ClimateCare, your carbon offset will go to support a Gold Standard project that operates on a national scale, and reduces over one million tonnes CO2e (equivalent emissions of CO2) per year.
Alongside cutting carbon, the project has a host of social impacts that positively affect real people’s lives today, such as improving:
- gender equality
- household incomes
- sustainable consumption
These are all part of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
