Our Projects

CarbonHero invests in projects around the globe to fight climate change

Projects our Subscribers Fund

CarbonHero invests in a variety of different projects to offset our user’s carbon footprint. These projects not only reduce carbon but also have a positive impact on people around the world.

We exclusively partner with leading independent verification standards to ensure your funds are invested into projects that make a real impact.

Renewable Energy

Developing renewable energy production, such as solar, wind, hydro, or biomass power.

Energy Efficiency

Encouraging energy efficiency around the globe. By converting the developing world to efficient stoves, we can reduce the carbon emissions of cooking by 50% and reduce the cost of fuel for individuals by over 40%.

Industrial Gases

Capturing and/or destroying greenhouse gases produced in industrial processes, particularly those that have dramatically more warming effect compared to carbon dioxide, such as nitrous oxide (N2O) or HFC-23.

Methane Capture

Methane’s effect on climate change is between 21 and 72 times more severe than that of carbon dioxide. Capturing it and converting it to carbon dioxide can have a big impact on global warming. These projects capture the methane released from activities such as landfills, coal mining, wastewater treatment and utilize it for fuel.

Biosequestration

By investing in biosequestration, we focus on keeping carbon in plants by not killing them or growing plants that absorb carbon. Projects include tree planting and avoiding deforestation.

Carbon Capture

Carbon capture represents the opportunity to take carbon from emissions sources and store it in geological and industrial locations. As of 2019, there were 17 carbon capture locations around the world with many more in the planning stages.

Current Projects

Clean Cooking Stoves in Myanmar

About the Project

Myanmar is the third largest contributor to deforestation worldwide. As the forests disappear, the price of wood gets higher, driving more and more families into energy poverty. Rural families in Myanmar spend as much as 40% of their income – or the time equivalent – on purchasing or collecting firewood.

Indoor cooking on inefficient stoves is a silent killer. Air pollution from domestic cooking is responsible for the premature deaths of over 4 million people a year—more than HIV Aids and malaria combined.

Each cookstove reduces wood consumption by at least 50%, reducing both pressure on forests and household expenditure on fuel.

Air pollution is reduced by 80%, improving the health and safety of the whole community. Carbon emissions are reduced by 60%, or four tons per year, per stove.

UN Sustainable Development Goals:

REDD+ Avoid Unplanned Deforestation in the Amazon

About the Project

The REDD+ project of Brazil both preserves and lightly harvests an area of untouched rainforest in Brazil’s most biodiverse region. The project protects an area larger than the entire city of San Francisco.

A detailed wildlife assessment was done during the project’s inception, and the project is known to be host to eight endangered mammal species and numerous endangered birds and plant species.

The detailed management of the forest will mean the continued employment of nearly 400 workers in the region.

100.5 MW Wind Project in India

About the Project

This is a 100.5 MW wind power project located in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. The project consists of 67 Wind Turbines of 1.5 MW each generating clean electricity with utilization of wind energy.

It has played an important role in reducing CO2 emissions and will continue to contribute towards the economic growth of the area by generating 180 GWh of clean electricity annually, which is equivalent to powering 42,000 households every year.

The project also leads to mitigation of 1.23 million tCO2e in carbon emissions in 7 years.
