Energy-efficient cook-stoves replace open fire places for cooking and therefore preserve the local forest. This project is implementend by our partner Kagera Coffee Union in cooperation with gepa and El Puente.
Energy-efficient cook-stoves replace open fire places for cooking in our project in Kenya. Consequently less wood has been burnt and emissions are reduced.
Energy-efficient cook-stoves reduce emissions due to cooking as less fire wood has been used. Further the new method produces less smoke and therefore households benefits from less air pollution and a better condition of health.
Our partner RDIS in Rwanda implements this project, and replaces open fire places for cooking with energy-efficient cook-stoves. Additionally water filters are in use to make clean drinking water available.
Currently we support five projects in India that focus on energy-efficiency and the use of renewable energy. All projects reduce emissions, tackle poverty, support the health and stimulate gender equality.
Due to the use of the wonderbag less wood has been used for cooking. This supports the conservation of the forest.
Renewable energy through biogas plants on household level reduces emissions, supports income and offers clean technology in the project in Cuba.
Energy-efficient cook-stoves replace open fire places for cooking. Therefore less wood has been used for cooking and forest preserved. The project is implemented by our partner, the local Lutheran Church Nicaragua.

A "Very Good" from the German Consumer Organization “Stiftung Warentest” for the Klima-Kollekte
Stiftung Warentest carried out a study on voluntary CO2 compensation. As one of six participating organizations, Klima-Kollekte gGmbH was examined - and achieved the rating "very good".
The experts wanted to know what the compensation providers are actively doing for climate protection and how they account for their actions. The decisive factor for the test result was the quality of the compensation. In order to be able to measure them, they evaluated the certificates confirming CO2 savings of the projects. The best ratings obtained certificates issued in accordance with the Gold Standard. The Gold Standard is a seal of quality for climate protection projects in developing countries (see above). The WWF and other environmental associations developed it in 2003 seeking to ensure benefits of the projects for both - climate and people. In this respect, Klima-Kollekte has scored among the best, as it works with the particularly demanding Gold Standard certificates.
Detailed test results can be found in the Finanztest edition (03/2018) and on the website of Stiftung Warentest. The test table shows how Klima-Kollekte compares with other suppliers for the criteria quality of compensation, transparency, management and control.
