ClimateCare wins Best Project Developer award from Environmental Finance
Published 10th September 2021 by ClimateCare
ClimateCare has been recognised for its excellence in developing projects of the highest quality and delivering critical benefits to communities, through its latest Best Project Developer - public health award from Environmental Finance.
With more than 20 years’ experience developing and delivering projects, ClimateCare is focused on those which not only deliver independently verified emission reductions, but also improve the health and livelihoods of those communities most impacted by climate change, yet least responsible.
Through clean cooking and reduced air pollution, access to clean water, saving time collecting fuel, reducing deforestation and conserving biodiversity, ClimateCare’s latest impact report demonstrates how its project portfolio has positively impacted 46 million lives. For example, its work with the innovative 14Trees project in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world with more than 50% of the population living below the poverty line, uses an innovative brick making technology to locally manufacture bricks and avoid the rapid deforestation required for clay-fired brick making. The project saves 14 trees for every house built in the country.
We are delighted to have received this honour from our industry peers, recognising our commitment to developing the highest quality emission reduction projects which also play a critical role in improving the health of families and communities. But, most importantly, it recognises our collaboration with innovative, expert partners on the ground who are making real change possible, and forward-thinking businesses who are delivering the finance and commitment to create a thriving, sustainable future for all.
“ClimateCare has won this project development award since we created it in 2013, recognising their leadership in this area and the importance of climate projects that not only cut carbon but also improve people’s health and livelihoods,” says Peter Cripps, Editor, Environmental Finance.
