Climate protection projects

We also contribute to climate protection in Switzerland by promoting the cultivation of standard trees in cooperation with myclimate and Hochstamm Suisse.

Solar power for Kenya

Solar power is being used to replace petrol lamps and reduce greenhouse gases in rural Kenya. 

Installing photovoltaic cells on the roofs of Kenyan houses to generate electricity gives families access to light and thus improves living conditions, especially for people in rural areas. The use of solar lighting instead of paraffin lamps has positive effects on their health and leads to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Reforestation in Ghana

Sustainable forestry is stopping erosion and reducing CO2 in Ghana. The goal is to reforest 20,000 ha. 

The project is located in the Ashanti region in the north of Ghana, right next to the Asubima Forest Reserve and Afrensu Brohuma Forest Reserve. The area has been severely affected by overuse, bush fires and deforestation. So far, around 3,200 ha have been reforested with teak trees and indigenous tree species. The area is to be expanded by 1,000 ha every year and will eventually cover 20,000 ha of woodland.

Solar power plant in Chile

One of the largest and most advanced solar power plants in the world generates energy without CO2

The Cerro Dominador concentrated solar power (CSP) plant generates electricity from solar power using an advanced system of mirrors and molten salts. CSP technology overcomes the disadvantage of conventional solar panels (that they need sunny weather to generate electricity) to provide clean electricity around the clock at a competitive price. This impressive, large-scale CSP project is the first to be successfully verified in Latin America and one of only five in the world.

Biogas for India

Biogas from cow dung is replacing firewood and paraffin in rural India and thus reducing CO2

The main objective of this climate protection programme is to build biogas plants as a clean and sustainable source of energy for households throughout India. The biogas produced from cow dung is intended to replace the fuels currently used, such as firewood or paraffin.

Tree planting in Switzerland

Planting standard fruit trees promotes local biodiversity and carbon storage.

The project with Hochstamm Suisse and myclimate project provides financial support to farmers for planting and maintaining standard fruit trees. The trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere by storing carbon. They also protect fields from ground erosion and reduce discharge of nutrients and pesticides into groundwater and surface water, as well as providing valuable habitats for diverse species.
