The European Outdoor Group is extremely pleased to be collaborating with myclimate once again. We aim to offset 125 tonnes of CO2 emissions which will go towards the carbon footprint generated by delegates' air travel to the Summit. The value of 125 tonnes is calculated at 2000€ (16€ per tonne) and will go towards our chosen project:
Efficient Cook Stoves to save Habitat for the last of the Mountain Gorillas
A reduction in the use of firewood means habitat for animals, less deforestation, reduction in greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere, more time and money, and improved health for women and girls in Rwanda! This can be achieved with the subsidised sale of energy efficient cook stoves to families around the Volcanoes National Park in North-West Rwanda.
About myclimate - The Climate Protection Partnership
myclimate is a partner for effective climate protection, globally and locally. Together with industry partners and private individuals, myclimate wants to shape the future of the world through advisory services and educational programmes, as well as its own projects. It does so in a market-oriented and customer-focused way as a non-profit organisation.
The high quality projects promote quantifiable climate protection and greater sustainability worldwide. CO2 emissions are currently compensated voluntarily by means of more than 70 climate protection projects in 30 countries. Emissions are reduced there by replacing fossil energy resources with renewable energies, and by implementing local afforestation measures with smallholder farmers and energy-efficient technologies. myclimate climate protection projects meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, CDM, Plan Vivo), which are not only proven to reduce greenhouse gasses locally and regionally, but also make a positive contribution to sustainable development.
Since the foundation was estabilshed these projects have created thousands of jobs, protected biodiversity and improved the general living conditions of hundreds of thousands of people.
