Solvatten AB has teamed up with Tricorona, a leading company in the global climate economy, to offer CDM* projects under the UN’s Kyoto Protocol. The first project is now starting in the Western Province of Kenya. As well as UNFCCC registration, Solvatten projects are expected to be certified ‘Gold Standard’- a certification reserved for high quality carbon offsets and approved by all
the major environmental organisations.
Swedish company Middagsfrid was one of the first to embrace this scheme. They have set a target of offsetting a whole year’s carbon emissions by distributing Solvatten units to families. These families would otherwise be collecting and burning wood to heat and treat their water. The result – everyone wins.
