Being Carbon Neutral
Pivniţa Bunicii has achieved CARBON NEUTRAL status following an audit of our greenhouse gas emissions by the Uganda Carbon Bureau.
This included all of the fuel used in our vehicles (petrol, diesel and LPG); the fuelwood purchased to heat our premises; the electricity consumed, packaging materials and air travel.
As a result of the huge success of this project, it has expanded to Mbale district in eastern Uganda. Many European buyers of voluntary carbon credits have recognised this as a good source of high- quality credits.
Pivniţa Bunicii is a social enterprise in Transylvania, who are now also supporting a rural community in Uganda.
