Supporting Some of the Highest Quality Carbon Offset Projects on the Planet
Founded in 2003, Carbonfund.org Foundation is a leading non-profit carbon offset provider making it easy and affordable for both individuals and organizations to mitigate their climate impacts by supporting some of the highest quality carbon offset projects on the planet. Carbonfund.org supports the highest quality carbon offset projects in three main categories; renewable energy, energy efficiency, and avoided deforestation. Carbonfund.org Foundation highest quality carbon offset projects are always verified to the top third- party certification standards on the planet such as the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) or the American Carbon Registry (ACR) and Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standard (CCB.) Experts agree we need a major reduction in CO2 over the next fifty years. With this in mind, we need to support the highest quality carbon offset projects now to mitigate climate change.
The Aqua Clara Water Filtration Programme
The Aqua Clara Water Filtration Programme, through the Aqua Clara Foundation, has a flagship product known as the ACF bio-sand water purifier. This zero energy ACF water purifier displaces the use of firewood fuel traditionally used to boil water for domestic consumption. ACF water purifier project seeks to introduce approximately 23,875 Bio Sand purifiers, 4 Large Scale Sand and Membrane Filters and approximately 4,800 household SAM units in rural and peri-urban Kenya and in so doing reduce 181,797 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. While many of these families do boil water to purify it for drinking purposes, continued use of firewood for this purpose has led to destruction of woodlands. Coupled with this widespread deforestation is the contribution of the households to local carbon dioxide emissions as well as indoor air pollution within the respective domestic units.
