Our project directly contributes to 9 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
PROJECTS TO HELP FIGHT Climate change and social issues
We develop and manage projects that leverage stoves to make positive change for current and future generations.
3 billion people cook their food on open fires or traditional cookstoves, burning anywhere between 2-10 tonnes of wood (or equivalent) each year. That’s a lot of wood being removed from vulnerable forests getting converted into harmful emissions that impact locally and are felt worldwide.

Maximizing Our Impact
We carefully steward our resources and the confidence of our stakeholders through a pragmatic approach.
Project Buhay: Changing Lives Through Improved Cooking in the Philippines
Project Buhay (“bu-hai” translates to “life” in Filipino) will be the first project of its kind to be accredited by the Verra Standard and SD VISta Certification in the Philippines.
This irreplaceable home to countless endemic species is also a deforestation hotspot. Just 7% of the original forest cover remains, making the Philippines one of the most severely deforested countries in the world.
