FairClimateFund wants to demonstrate that the carbon market can benefit those – who are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change – in a fair and effective way. Those with the largest carbon footprint invest in carbon reduction projects with high social impact that meet the Gold Standard and/or Fairtrade Climate Standard.
Together with our partners, we finance and implement climate projects. These climate projects reduce CO₂ emissions and deforestation, and improve the living conditions for people in developing countries.
Revenues from sale of carbon credits cover the costs of the climate projects. Local households pay off their cookstoves with the carbon credits they produce and they also receive a Fairtrade premium which is invested in climate adaptation activities.
Our goal is to work together with our partners to provide cleaner cooking solutions for half a million people, and to plant half a million trees in order to reduce a million tonnes of CO₂ before 2025.
