Your unavoidable carbon emissions
Our fuel-efficient cookstoves make offsetting easy and affordable. Each Changu Changu Moto cookstove reduces household wood use from three bundles of wood per week to just one saving three tonnes of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) per year.
Changu Changu Moto
So far, we have helped communities construct over 40,000 Changu Changu Moto cookstoves. This has resulted in 80,000 fewer bundles of firewood being needed every week, reducing household wood use by 67%.
People use our offsets for various purposes including for the Australian Climate Active certification, the United Nations Climate Neutral Now initiative, the Paris Climate Change Agreement and to meet net-zero commitments. You can offset your emissions too by exploring our offset options.
Our cookstove project is registered under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The CDM is operated and administered by the United Nations. We have applied the rigorous CDM Standard which means that the stoves are regularly monitored, independently audited and verified. The offsets we sell are then issued by the UN. These offsets are called Certified Emission Reductions or CERs. When you buy our offsets, we'll provide a certificate from the UN to certify your offsets have been cancelled for you (go here for more info). Our project is also registered under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS).
You are in good company if you offset your carbon emissions with us.
