One of Carbon Credit Capital's primary activities is to support certified carbon reduction projects by connecting buyers of carbon offsets to them. To this end Carbon Credit Capital puts a great deal of emphasis on supporting projects that are CCB certified and distribute clean cookstoves. Carbon offset projects have the potential to do so much more good than only help prevent climate change, and this potential for co-benefits that is one of Carbon Credit Capital's main motivators for engaging in the voluntary carbon market.

Clean Cooking Activities
A project to highlight is the RMDLT Project which avoids unplanned deforestation of high conservation value rainforest in the Portel municipality in the region of Para, Brazil while also supporting sustainable development and cookstoves to the local community.® Code REDD® gives a nice summary:
The Project will protect 177,899.5 ha of forests encompassed in a privately owned area. The Project started its activities in 2008 through forest patrolling and monitoring to prevent agents of deforestation from encroaching the area. It is in 2013 that the Project is able to scale-up its activities and engage local villagers as paid staff in forest protection and biodiversity monitoring activities.
Approximately 130 families live within the boundaries of the Project and all of them practice subsistence agriculture. Since 2013 the Project â€“in agreement with the landowner- is working to provide legal land-use permits that will result in official land titles for those villages that actively participate in forest protection. Also, the Project is supporting local villages to strengthen their social structure, improve food security through agroforestry techniques and to use less fuelwood by using energy-efficient cookstove technologies. On top of the funds committed for the aforementioned activities, the Project will assign an additional 5% of the revenues from carbon sales to create a trust fund that will serve to support locally driven sustainable initiatives.
The project zone is inserted in an area of extreme importance for biodiversity conservation holding a great diversity and abundance of species. The Project will enhance ecosystem functionality by allowing regeneration of degraded forest thus eliminating ecosystem fragmentation.
Carbon Credit Capital can contribute by adding its expertise in selling carbon offsets to the project to help support financing cookstove distribution.
