Impact Fellowship – Safe Water Uganda

Position: Impact Fellowship – Safe Water Uganda

Location: Kampala, Uganda
 
About Us:
Impact Carbon’s mission is to improve health and the environment in the developing world through clean energy projects that reduce carbon emissions.
 
Impact Carbon generates carbon emission reductions from household energy projects that improve living conditions in the less-developed communities we serve. We leverage the financial returns from these projects to benefit local partners and people.
Typical Impact Carbon projects involve developing carbon offsets for projects that scale the sales and distribution of efficient appliances such as healthy cookstoves and water treatment devices. Impact Carbon works with carbon finance investors, carbon project developers, implementing partners, philanthropists and NGOs to quantify the carbon emissions reduced by our projects and to generate and verify carbon offsets, both CERs and VERs. With JP Morgan Climate Care, Impact Carbon issued the first Gold Standard VERs from a cookstove project in early 2010.  
 
Impact Carbon is currently validating and/or verifying 12 projects in 9 countries and has a deep pipeline of projects slated for rapid development.  
 
Impact Carbon is based in San Francisco, CA. Impact Carbon develops projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
