Our Technical Services team is thrilled to announce the successful issuance of over 70,000 new Gold Standard certified carbon credits for the voluntary carbon market on the behalf of Hydrologic. Over the past few months our team has been coordinating this issuance to formalize Hydrologic’s great contribution to climate change mitigation and social impact.
Hydrologic has been developing water filters for about a decade, producing and developing technology that allows local communities without access to piped water to move away from boiling water practices.
This initiative has both positive environmental and health impacts. Environmental impacts are achieved through avoiding deforestation and reducing indoor air pollution. Health impacts are achieved for some of the most vulnerable populations, namely women and children. Having access to safe drinking water reduces the number of water diseases while also, substantially reduces the number of respiratory diseases and related fatalities by avoiding water boiling practices.
