  • Work out where your actions can have the largest emissions savings
  • Do what you can to reduce your emissions and minimise your footprint

Help others reduce theirs

Help frontline communities reduce emissions, meet their basic needs and build resilience

  • Sign up to start funding low-carbon projects that reduce global emissions
  • Invest in climate justice and climate equity action in vulnerable communities

The clean water project saving lives (and emissions)

In rural Rwanda, thirsty families must cut down trees to boil drinking water, or drink unclean water and roll the dice. This is an area where over 900 kids under 5 die from diarrhoea every year. 

We’re helping fund CO2balance’s Rwanda Safe Water project, establishing safe and reliable water sources in the area.

The project has: 

  • helped 68,000 people
  • prevented 10,000 tonnes of emissions
  • decreased waterborne diseases (by up to 29%*)
  • saved families time otherwise spent collecting wood (up to 2 hours per bundle*)
  • reduced deforestation and pressure on wildlife
(*study by Barstow et al., 2019 analysing similar projects in Rwanda)
