Soneva is built on the belief that a business must exist for a greater purpose than shareholder returns. The Soneva Foundation supports the development of environmental projects that have a positive environmental, social and economic impact.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A STOVE CREDIT?

A Stove Credit is also known as a carbon credit, the emission reduction equivalent of one tonne of carbon dioxide.

Stove carbon credits are produced under a methodology certified by the Gold Standard Foundation whereby the reduction in wood consumption by the efficient cooking stoves helps to preserve carbon dioxide stored in the unique vegetation and biodiversity of forests.

The sale of the carbon credits to predominantly wealthier developed country participants provides the funding required to scale these projects while reducing further deforestation, airborne health-risks and carbon dioxide emissions.

HOW MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE DOES THE COOK STOVE MAKE?

An efficient stove will reduce wood consumption by 50%, reduce smoke and soot (air-pollution) by 80% and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 60% through the avoidance of burning wood from forests.

HOW MANY STOVES ARE PLANNED TO BE DISTRIBUTED?

Over the next five (5) years, The Soneva Foundation plans to distributes 200,000 stoves reaching across almost 1 million rural Myanmar residents. To date over 20,000 stoves have already been deployed.
