DelAgua: Live Well: Transforming lives and nature at scale in sub Saharan Africa
DelAgua’s Live Well programme operates in Rwanda, The Gambia and Sierra Leone and has distributed 1.6 million stoves with integrated education, free of charge, impacting 7 million lives. It focuses exclusively on the rural poor for whom an improved cookstove is unaffordable. Innovative application of technology drives the programme’s success. It manages the complexity of distributing hundreds of thousands of stoves to remote rural communities efficiently, enables accurate tracking of stove location and usage and collects data essential to the integrity of the carbon credits generated which fund the programme. This builds investor confidence, key to long term growth.

GoCodeGreen: Decarbonizing the digital world in which we all live
In a world, where so many products and services are delivered digitally, GoCodeGreen has built a decisioning platform to calculate the carbon emissions related to software production and operation. We’ve taken the GHG Protocol ICT Sector Guidance and codified it. Our aim is to decarbonise digital. Our potential market is every software product in the world. We have already worked across 20 organisations and the actions identified could have reduced the total carbon impact by 53%, the equivalent of not using 22m kWh energy or leaving 9,000 tonnes of fossil fuels in the ground.
