About Us

Green Development is a private company that has registered a CDM Program of Activity (PoA). We partner up with project implementers who want to start their projects instead of spending time and resources on registering their own program. Projects under this program will be implemented by local partners that will share the income generated from carbon credits. Green Development has together with local implementing partners generated carbon credits from projects in Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi and Nigeria. Hence, Green Development seeks to get in touch with both project implementers and buyers of carbon credits.

Carbon Credits

CERs That Represent Real Change


Our projects create change where change is most needed. CERs generated from our projects all represent multifaceted and substantial development values like reduced Co2 pollution, decreased deforestation, increased household productivity and reduced black carbon emission. But most importantly, purchasing CERs from us means more people will get access to life-changing solutions like access to clean water or clean cookstoves – these solutions save lives.

Distribution of SAFI Bio-Ethanol Cookstoves


We are always on the lookout for local implementation partners who can help us out on the frontlines. Our main focus is currently on expanding household reach of our clean cookstove projects in Kenya and Madagascar. If you are interested in becoming a local partner and help distribute one of the very best clean cookstoves solutions available on the market, let us know – we want to hear from you!


Household by household

Through heavily discounted clean ethanol cookstoves, financed by carbon credits, we have changed the lives of thousands of women and children at Madagascar and in Kenya. And today, household by household we continue our efforts to provide a positive impact on people and the nature. Are you looking to buy carbon credits from projects generating unprecedented verified development value?

Impact that matters

Together with our implementation partners we produce and offer impactful carbon credits. Read more on this here..

Best in development value?

The PoA for the reduction of emission from non-renewable fuel from cooking at household level is the best carbon credit program in the world. This might be a bold statement, but we believe we can back it up.

Clean cookstove projects

Indoor air pollution from burning fuels such as wood to heat or light homes or cook is putting nearly three billion people worldwide at risk of ill health and early death. Women and children are particularly susceptible to the toxic effects of pollution and are exposed to the highest concentrations.

Clean water to tens of thousands

Green Development is seeking buyers of carbon credits from our program. The carbon credits will be sold to those that are willing to pay a premium for carbon credits with substantial development value.

Over 100.000 households benefit from our program.

We look forward to hearing from you!
