For Stoves is a not-for-profit, set up to enable roll out of stoves through monetising the emission reductions, bringing health, environmental and economic benefits to local communities and global environmental and economic benefits.
For Stoves has been founded by Nicola Steen and has an experienced Board http://www.forstoves.com/who-we-are/
For Stoves is establishing a Programme of Activities (PoA) under the UNs Clean Development Mechanism. A PoA is like an umbrella: different project developers, in different countries, can come under the one umbrella to receive Certified Emission Reductions (CERs). The For Stoves PoA is to assist companies who are rolling out stove projects in countries across the globe. As each stove in the different projects reduces greenhouse gases from what they otherwise would have been, those emission reductions are certified by the UNs process and CERs can be sold. The money from the CERs helps pay for the stove projects.
Monetizing emission reductions is key: it makes the stoves affordable and makes the changes possible. Also, the stove users become part of the market solution to tackle climate change: payments received for their emission reductions are invested in further developing the business and installing more stoves, so early stove users are passing on benefits and assisting other communities. They are part of the real returns cycle“ creating real changes in the world.
Each project developer doesnt have to go through the bureaucracy and costs of registering its project with the UN: For Stoves is doing that work. For Stoves holds the umbrella and developers across the world can come under the umbrella, working together to create healthier living environments, help women have less unnecessary, burdensome work and more time for other activities and to reduce environmental damage.
