Second Issuance of Carbon Credits from Meru Cookstove Project

Last week Gold Standard issued 28,337 carbon credits from  the Meru small scale cook stoves project. The project is located in Meru South District of Tharaka Nithi County a place famously known as Chuka district and had 28,337 tonnes of CO2 emissions reductions during the last monitoring period. Since 2011, the Meru Improved Cook stove project has focused on reducing the negative health, environmental and economic impacts related to cooking on three stone fires through the distribution of over 8000 improved CZK cook stoves.

The distribution of fuel-efficient cook stoves has also lessen the amount of harmful smoke and indoor air pollution currently associated with traditional three-stone fires. This resulted in a decrease in the incidences of negative health impacts, such as respiratory diseases, among rural households.
