Projects We're Funding

Madagascar's Story

Since humans first stepped foot on Madagascar, more than 90% of the island’s forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and significantly reducing water quality.

To help restore the much-needed bio-harmony on the island, Furthr has joined up with world-renowned tree planting charity Eden Reforestation Projects to plant trees across multiple coastal mangrove & dry deciduous planting sites in the north-west of the island. Mangrove forests are essential ecosystems, serving as an anchor for the soil and coastline, whilst preventing erosion and creating a barrier between oceans and land.

How you can help

Through our £8 subscription you will plant 3 trees in Madagascar every single month to help local communities fight deforestation and climate change.

India's Story

Out of the 30 worst air polluted cities across the globe, 21 are in India, with 140 million people in India breathing air that is at least 10 times over the WHO safe limit.

This program, jointly managed between Carbonbay & Nuetech, distributes solar water heaters throughout India to reduce reliance on fossil fuel energy. As well as cutting fossil-fuel electricity by up to 30% for just over 91,000 homes and businesses this project simultaneously raises awareness & educates residents on household actions they can take more generally to save energy & combat the climate crisis.

How you can help

On our £8 subscription you can be reducing around 0.4 tonnes of CO2 in India every month with a new solar water heater every 4 months, all helping the fight air pollution and climate change.

Why India?

  • With a population of over 1.3 billion, India has one of the largest energy demands on the planet
  • It's one of the sunniest places on the planet, with most of the nation seeing sun for 300 days a year
  • But 9/10 people still use fossil-fuelled electricity to heat their water

Kenya's story

In 1963 forests covered 10% of Kenya, today that number is only 6%. High rates of deforestation have reduced rainwater for local communities, lead to increased flooding and raised temperatures.

In partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, Furthr is planting trees across two distinct regions of Kenya: the Great Rift Valley and the Northern Coast. Within the Great Rift Valley, we are planting afromontane within the Kijabe forest, and along the Northern Coast, we are planting mangrove and coastal forest tree species. All of this incredible work is helping to turn back the clock on deforestation, improve soil erosion and regulate the water cycle for local communities.

Indonesia's story

Around 60% of Indonesia's electricity power is generated from it’s natural abundance of dirty coal. Greenpeace estimated that Indonesia’s coal plants are leading to 6500 premature deaths every year.

Located in the Sidrap region of South Sulawesi, this project is the first ever wind farm to provide clean energy to Indonesia's national power grid. Not only does this mark an incredible milestone in an incredible country, but the scale of this farm's output is vast, with enough clean energy to power around 70,000 homes each year.

This direct swap of fossil fuel energy for renewables has lead to a reduction of 141,000 tonnes of CO2 every year. As a plus, the project also creates jobs within both project development & construction, with most being filled by the local citizens from the region. No wonder it was inaugurated by the president!

30 turbines with total capacity @ 75 MW
Employment Creation: 35 jobs with equal pay opportunities

Why Indonesia?

  • 60% of Indonesia's power comes from carbon-intensive coal
  • If just half of Indoneisia's wind energy potential was captured, it would power the whole nation
  • Funding is needed to cut the price of wind energy vs Indonesia's extensive coal supply

Mozambique's story

Since the 1970s, Mozambique has lost 8 million hectares of forests - that’s the same size as Portugal! In a country that's home to 20 threatened bird species, and over 200 native mammal species, losing 1000 football fields' worth of forests every day is a big problem. On top of this, over 45% of the population live beneath the poverty line and rely heavily on local biodiversity for survival.

In partnership with Eden Reforestation Proejcts, our subscribers are planting protected trees across multiple inland and coastal mangrove sites in the south of the country, creating opportunity for employment and restoring habitats for key endangered wildlife.

How you can help

Through our £8 subscription you can be planting 3 trees in Mozambique every single month.

How we Verify our Climate Impact

One of the most important parts of our initiative is to be able to verify and certify the impact our projects have each day. See all the detail on how we certify our impact below.

Our renewable energy projects are verified & certified under the United Nations' Clean Development Mechanism for the carbon emissions they prevent.

The UN's CDM Projects reduced over 2 billion Tonnes of CO2 in 2020 - that's more than Russia's total emissions in 2018!

Way back at the turn of the millenium, the UN developed a system called the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which drives financial support into the world's critical climate change solutions by enabling the purchase of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs). A CER is a certificate issued by the UN's CDM in exchange for funding these climate projects, with each CER recording the official prevention of one Tonne of equivalent carbon emissions.

Example UN CER certification awarded to Furthr from our India Solar Thermal Project. This officially certifies the prevention of 28 Tonnes of carbon (28 CERs)
Please see original CER here

Please find all of our recent carbon prevention certificates on our Transparency page

Before any renewable energy project is accepted into the UN's CDM, it must go through 7 steps of thorough analysis and due dilligence - both at a local and UN-executive level. Most importantly, the UN verifies what exactly 1 tonne of carbon emissions prevented means for each renewable energy project - this is calculated by looking at the carbon emitted per Kilowatt from local fossil-fuelled electricity, and then matching this with the same Kilowatt output from our renewable energy projects.


The WWF's Gold Standard agency provides an extra layer of project design verification on-top of the UN, ensuring that the projected annual clean energy output of our projects is met.

Gold Standard was founded back in 2003 by WWF to ensure that any CDM projects contains the highest levels of environmental integrity and reduction efficiency. Now nearly two decades old, they are regarded as one of the world's leading authorities in the fight against climate change, having propped up over 1400 projects in 80 countries. What Gold Standard adds to the projects is a rigorous selection process for the projects it certifies along with thorough monitoring of every outcome that a project initially pledges when it is planned.

Certification Requirements

Projects must be able to be monitored to ensure they are producing as much clean energy as they agreed
Projects must involve consultation with local communities and follow Gender-sensitive guidelines
Projects must be below Gold Standard’s risk threshold (e.g. large-scale hydropower projects could be a big no-no)
Projects must meet a minimum of 3 of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals
Projects must meet Gold Standard's set of social and environmental safeguards
Projects must prove that they are additional and wouldn’t be able to take place without this sort of funding

Most importantly, a project will only become certified when Gold Standard can independently approve, through a plethora of assessments, that the project can consistently meet their requirements ongoing.

Eden Reforestation Projects is a world-leading reforestation charity, who have planted over 440 million trees across the world. Our trees are planted in partnership with Eden across our projects in Madagascar, Mozambique & Kenya

We support Eden Reforestation Projects as our planting partner due to the endless focus they put on changing lives as well as the planet: at the very core of their mission is only hiring villagers to the projects to plant trees.

Eden Reforestation Projects are committed to working with local villages and communities to achieve a successful and longstanding reforestation effort. Eden only plant native tree species that the villages protect because they have a vested interest in them as most sites are owned by local communities. Eden commit to protecting trees into the future through building strong relationships with communities and governments, securing written agreements and funding site guards to ensure forests longevity.

Eden Reforestation Projects have planted over 440 million healthy trees and have created over 4.8 million working days for local communities

Take a look at the story behind this beautiful charity below. We couldn't be prouder to be partnered with them.

Why Reforestation?

One of the most critical climate issues we all face is deforestation, with over 80,000 acres of forest land being destroyed every single day. The protected trees we plant with Eden Reforestation Projects help combat the impacts of deforestation through planting new healthy forests. These trees we plant with Eden bring a wealth of natural benefits: restoring habitat for local wildlife, providing protection against flooding, decreasing desertification & drought to name a few! Each tree planted is always a native species to the region of the planting site, so we know that we are not bringing any invasive species into local ecosystems.

In the long term, trees naturally absorb or "sequester" carbon emissions, helping reduce carbon emissions over time and bring back the critical carbon balance that we need to maintain and reduce our global temperatures.

Why Renewables?

Electricity generation accounts for around 40% of the world's carbon emissions - a number that will increase as our global population skyrockets. Luckily, the solution has never been clearer: switch to generating all global electricity through renewable sources - and fast! This is easy to say, but to really achieve this goal in the short time we have, the focus needs to be on scaling up renewable energy in high-growth developing countries, where the infrastructure and financial support is not readily available.

Our renewable energy projects do exactly this, and as part of the UN & GS certification process, each of our projects has demonstrated that they would not have been able to exist without funding from initiatives like ours. This way, we know that we are fast-tracking our global green future, focussing on where the planet needs help the most.
