Why support us by buying VERS?
In short, it makes all this happen. You are helping the health of the stove users.
When you “buy” a VER what that means is we permanently retire a Gold Standard VER from the Gold Standard registry – it can never be re-used or re-sold.
The funds generated from your support help Hestian and our local co-implementers to expand the benefits of cleaner cooking to more people in Africa.
And if that isn’t enough – Climate Justice
Your support increases the resilience of thousands of households who now have less smoke in their homes, save fuel, and have less pressure on their natural resource base – so they are stronger in the face of a changing climate.
Remember they are typically small-scale farmers who are: most dependent on our climate for their livelihoods, most affected by but least responsible for climate change.
