Carbon projects

We participate in carbon neutralising projects worldwide.  Below are a few examples of these projects.
Carbon Neutral Websites only works with accredited projects that provide verifiable carbon reduction.

Establishment of Ethiopian rainforest

Ethiopia is one of the poorest nations in the world with a GDP per capita.  Per capita at only $619 a year.  The country's agricultural sector, which provides livelihoods to over 90 percent of the population, has been paralysed by environmental degradation.  Utilisation of forest resources has left less than 3% of Ethiopia's native forests.  Severe erosion reduces the country's ability to absorb water and has resulted in increasingly difficult drought and flood cycles.

The project aims to protect the heavily degraded forest on the mountainside and plant new trees that support the long-term restoration of the ecosystem in the region.

The project focuses on the active participation of members of the local community, who are directly responsible for the implementation of the project.
Proceeds from the project are reinvested in local development initiatives, such as education, health and environmental protection projects.

Cleaner and safer ovens in Malawi

This project provides improved ovens in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world, where 98% of families cook using charcoal.  Chitetezo Mbaula clay stove uses far less firewood than traditional stoves and is easy and convenient to use, helping households take the first step away from open fires, which pollute the air both inside and outside the home.  The ovens are affordable ($1-2), made exclusively in Malawi and available to those who need it most, mainly women who cook with wood on an open fire.
