Verra has published a case study about the Tuik Ruch Lew Improved Cookstove Project for Lake Atitlán (TRL project). The TRL project is a registered Verified Carbon Standard project that is also verified in Verra’s Sustainable Development Verified Impact (SD VISta) Program as it advances several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The project sustainably provides, installs, and maintains energy-efficient cookstoves in the Lake Atitlán Basin, Guatemala. Verra’s SD VISta verifies the project’s diverse benefits so that investors can have full confidence in their social and environmental impacts – from reduced air pollution (SDG 3, Good Health and Well-Being), to clean water (SDG 6, Clean Water and Sanitation), and access to improved cookstove technology (SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy).
SD VISta is the world’s most advanced standard for certifying the real-world benefits of social and environmental projects, including gender equality, economic development, affordable clean energy, and restoration of wildlife. SD VISta aims to facilitate large-scale investment in sustainable development by providing developers and investors with reliable data on the social and environmental benefits of their projects.
