Carbon offsetting to go all the way

Renun River Hydro, Indonesia

In the Sumatra inland, this VCS-certified project harvests the power offered by the 500-meter height difference between four rivers and a turbine station. The water runs in separate pipelines without a retaining dam. The project replaces fossil-fuel-derived energy in Indonesia’s electricity grid and provides job opportunities, schools, and infrastructure for the local community.

Huóshuĭ Small Hydropower, China

The VCS-certified Huóshuĭ Small Hydropower project in the mountainous regions of central China generates renewable energy for over 500,000 homes. Power from mountain rivers is a crucial source of renewable and stable energy for many remote communities, thanks to building 95 small hydropower plants in the region. More than 200 people are employed, mostly from ethnic minorities.
