Below, please find brief descriptions of carbon projects that adhere to internationally recognised Standards.
These projects are "additional". This means the projects could not have been realized without the pay back via the revenue generated through the sale of carbon credits. Each project entails a series of valuable socio-economic benefits that go beyond greenhouse gas emission reductions. This can range from increasing living standards, allowing access to education, creating jobs, improving health conditions or infrastructure and further more.
We will be happy to assist you in selecting projects eligible to your business.

Ibanda Makera Projekt
Improving the cooking infrastructure: In most rural communities, it is the women's and girls' responsibility to take care of family meals. Collecting firewood is part of this task. If they can't find nearby and safely accessible natural resources, women and girls will walk long distances to find sufficient firewood to cook for their families. By reducing the time needed to collect firewood, children can dedicate more time to learn for school and women to produce woven handicraft. These productes are then sold at local markets and generate income for their family.
Ibanda Makera natural forests: Overall, more than 110,000 indigenous trees species, like the Acasia sieberiana, the Dracaena afromontana or the Markhamia lutea, have been planted by LIKANO and its local partner REDO to extend the forest area and create new wildlife habitat. Several awareness and trainings programs allow to further consolidate the afforestation activities.
The School: The Ibanda Primary school welcomes over 1,200 pupils from the age of 6 to 13. Many schools in Rwanda have no or only few funds for new equipment. The new chairtable-combination sponsored by Likano and manufactured by local carpenters enables the teaching of more students at the same time, enhancing the comfort for the children and the teachers. A new playground will also allow the children to play volleyball and basketball.
The Siam Solar Energy 1 Project bundles 10 solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants across Kanchanaburi and Suphanburi Provinces in central Thailand. The solar PV systems are a cutting-edge, environmentally-sound technology with a capacity of approximately 10 MW per plant and deliver generated electricity to the grid.
By distributing innovative cookstove technology to communities in Rwanda, this project benefits the environment by significantly reducing fuel consumption. Health conditions inside homes are improved due to the presence of less indoor smoke, and families can spend less time collecting wood fuel and more time with their families.
Safe Community Water Supply Rwanda
Lack of safe water, along with poor sanitation and hygiene, is among the greatest causes of poverty in Africa. Without access to clean drinking water, breaking the poverty cycle is incredibly difficult. The Rwanda Borehole Project both provides local communities with clean water and reduces CO2 emissions.
Wind Farm in New Caledonia
Small island nations like New Caledonia are often described as ‘the canary in the coal mine’ of climate change, with many already experiencing the impact of rising tides and damaging storms. These wind farms use world class technology to provide New Caledonia with sustainable energy to combat climate change whilst also addressing various social issues.
Wind Farms in Taiwan
Wind parks with total installed capacity of 92.4 MW are contributing to the further development of renewable energy generation in Taiwan, a country that still depends on fossil fuels for the large part. In addition to their positive impact on the global climate, the project generates jobs and is engaged in bene
Landfill Gas Capture in China
This project captures the methane emissions from a landfill and uses it for clean power generation, improves the lives of locals and contributes to sustainable development in China.
Gunung Salak Geothermal Energy in Indonesia
This project upgrades the capacity of an existing geothermal plant, significantly increasing its efficiency. The power plant – the first of its kind in Indonesia – now generates even more clean, renewable energy, while improving the livelihoods of surrounding local communities.
