ICECAP’s Carbon Projects

In 2010, ICECAP principals led the start up of a new energy efficiency business under the name 3 Rocks in Zambia involving the distribution and installation in rural areas of fuel efficient stoves financed by the sale (to the Swedish Government energy agency) of the carbon emissions reductions generated by lower wood usage. The business successfully distributed and installed over 40,000 stoves, benefitting in total approximately 200,000 people. In doing so, the amount of wood burned and carbon emitted was drastically reduced but also there are numerous other important benefits including;

  • Less time spent collecting wood fuel for the family home, presenting alternative opportunities for economic development such as cash crop production or more education for children,
  • Cooking and heating on open fires or traditional stoves results in high levels of indoor air pollution which is a significant killer in low income countries, the efficient stoves significantly reduce these harmful levels

The project was audited and is registered by the UN . Its design was to support some of the poorest individuals in the world whilst producing additional, genuine, and measurable reductions. Due to the unique nature of this project, the project was then selected by the Swedish Government who purchased the credits to help meet its international obligations.

*Based on retiring 20 tonnes of carbon credits for each employee which is the average emissions per capita of the highest EU state. We believe this is a conservative and comprehensive assessment of ICECAPs emissions and will result in ICECAP being able to proudly state that it is carbon neutral for 2020 and thereafter.
