The Jerónimo Martins Group, through TerraSystemics/ E)mission, a consulting firm in the field of the environment, energy and carbon, ensured the accounting of carbon emissions (i.e. greenhouse gas emissions) associated with producing “Feed” and ensured the allocation of the offset credits by withdrawing them from the market, on its behalf.

The project supported with this initiative aimed to provide “efficient cookstoves” to the Likoni community, one of the most poverty-stricken areas in the city of Mombasa, southern Kenya. Built, distributed and installed by the local population, the so-called “efficient cookstove” makes it possible to improve the quality of life of the community, while contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions into the stratosphere.
