Sustainability Credits

You Can Help Build Sustainability

Purchase Sustainability Credits:

Each Sustainability Credit provides at least 20 m3 of safe drinking water to families and communities in South Sudan and avoids at least 3 tonnes of Greenhouse Gas emissions (and deforestation) that would otherwise be needed to boil a portion of this water to make it safe to drink.

The water and carbon credits are verified by Enviro-Stewards and reviewed by Water Plan (water credits) and Kuzuka (voluntary carbon credits), respectively.  All of the funds received from the sale of sustainability credits are used to pay for time & expenses associated with initiating and maintaining sustainable development projects. Accounting of these funds is verified by Enviro-Stewards’ accountant.

Sustainability Credits cost $100 each. They are helpful for:

• voluntarily offsetting all or a portion of water consumed or carbon emitted by your facility,
• voluntarily offsetting carbon associated with travel or meetings,
• meaningful gifts on behalf of loved ones

For example:

Veriform purchased 10 credits which produce 200 m3 of safe drinking water  in South Sudan (offsetting 100% of the water consumed by Veriform in Ontario last year).

Kuzuka donated 1 Sustainability Credit to Sustainable Waterloo, which avoids at least 3 tonnes of GHG emissions (this offsets 100% of the GHG emissions associated with Sustainable Waterloo events held in November 2009).

To purchase credits, mail a cheque payable to:

Cicilia ide and son Manasseh
When my husband bought the filter, I was not happy. While the children are suffering from diarrhoea, you buy a stone instead of medicine.
But today there is good improvement in our family towards water borne disease (cholera).
Son Manasseh says “mama, the water is sweet.”
