Clean Water For Life
The co2balance community borehole project is unique in that it concentrates on finding existing but damaged water supplies and boreholes and repairs them to restore cleanwater supplies to the community. Utilizing carbon finance as a long term funding mechanism ensures security for the continuation of the borehole safeguarding the community into the future. Once a borehole is in operation, providing clean water without the need to boil it, co2balance are able to generate carbon credits.
By monitoring the amount of clean water delivered each day as a result of the maintenance project co2balance can calculate the fuel saved by not having to boil water to purify it. These fuel savings result in CO2 emission reductions, which are independently verified and then registered as carbon credits.
