India – Solar
To replace thermal and fossil fuel-based energy, this project installs a 70 MW solar power facility in Bhadla village to harness Rajasthan’s famous sunshine. It reduces the emissions of harmful greenhouse gases, instead exporting clean and renewable energy to the Indian national grid. In doing so, this project will work towards India’s national progressive energy target of reaching 100GW of solar energy capacity by 2022.
Rimba Raya Biodiversity
The Rimba Raya project is a REDD+ program aimed at reducing emissions and preserving the environment, which includes the world’s largest privately funded sanctuary for orangutans in collaboration with the Orangutan Foundation International.
Located in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, the project covers 64,977 hectares of peatland. Its aim is to reduce emissions by over 104,000,000 tCO2e during a 30-year period spanning from July 1st, 2009 to June 30th, 2039.
Improved Cook Stove
Nepal – ICS
The Nepalese communities in the project use traditional cookstoves with 10% efficiency. The distributed improved cookstoves are two models of single-pot rocket stoves, HPNJE-01ND and Greenway Jumbo, with 30.29% and 29.79% efficiency respectively. VNV Advisory Services has been driving carbon reduction initiatives since 2010, impacting over 6 million rural households in South Asia through various programs, including sustainable agriculture and clean cooking devices.
Thailand – Ocean Plastic Recycle
Despite what many people believe, the production of virgin plastic has actually increased to an all-time high. In 2021, the global production of virgin plastic surpassed 380 million tons, which is over double the amount produced 20 years prior, when it was just 200 million tons.
The project goal is to recover and recycle ocean plastic in all islands and coastal areas of Thailand.
Katingan Mentaya Project
The Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project in Indonesia safeguards 149,800 hectares of peatland, preventing 447 million tCO2e emissions over 60 years. This critical carbon sink project preserves biodiversity and prevents conversion to industrial plantations. Partnering with local villages, it promotes sustainable development through various initiatives. Managed by PT Rimba Makmur Utama, it’s a significant conservation effort.
Delta Blue Carbon
Pakistan– ARR, REDD+, WRC
The Delta Blue Carbon – 1 Project (DBC-1) in Pakistan’s Indus River Delta restores 350,000 hectares of vital mangroves and wetlands. Over 60 years, it removes 142 million tCO2e of carbon, addressing deforestation driven by local needs. DBC-1 involves communities, improves amenities, education, and healthcare, and fosters sustainability. A partnership between The Sindh Forest and Wildlife Department and Indus Delta Capital Limited, DBC-1 safeguards both nature and people.
United States– Removal
The CarbonCure project, led by CarbonCure Technologies, transforms waste CO2 into a valuable resource for concrete production. This initiative, which runs from November 6, 2018, to November 5, 2025, is set to reduce emissions by over 366,000 tCO2e during its seven-year lifetime, with the potential for two renewals over 21 years.
