into our impact
Transparency is one of our highest priorities. The results of our Patsari Improved Cookstove program have been evaluated through monitoring surveys, kitchen performance tests, and independent audits with strict requirements as part of our Gold Standard certification.
Combining sustainable funding from Carbon Credits with robust monitoring procedures and data infrastructure, we can track and scale our impact like never before.
and Wildlife Thrive
In Michoacán, Mexico, Patsari stoves improve peoples’ quality of life while preserving nearby endangered wildlife habitats.
Our efforts work to prevent deforestation in the surrounding Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve (MBBR), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where even small-scale tree removal for fuelwood affects the microclimate and the butterflies’ ability to survive storms.
