The Safe Water Projects we certify supply clean drinking water to people all over Sub Saharan Africa. We work hard to contribute to a number of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) when developing projects.

Vita is a great organisation which CO2balance work with to certify the carbon reductions from their projects. We first partnered with them on their water projects in 2017, with the joint aim to give people in the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region of Ethiopia, access to reliable clean drinking water at the same time as reducing CO2e emissions by removing the need to boil water to purify it.

So far their Safe Water Project has rehabilitated over 60 boreholes and 9 protected springs. It has given 29,886 people access to clean water reduced 165,584 Tonnes of CO2e and 443,402 Tonnes of wood.
