AVT Group is climate neutral

AVT has been committed to climate protection for a long time. As of now, the entire AVT Group is climate neutral. We offset our emissions and support a project in Africa. The Ibanda-Makera Forest Cook Stove Project plans to distribute over 70,000 improved Canarumwe cook stoves to rural households in the Kirehe district of southeastern Rwanda. Cooking there has traditionally been done on thermally inefficient "three-stone fires" resulting in incomplete combustion and high indoor air pollution. This poses a major respiratory hazard. The improved cookstoves are produced locally and create valuable local jobs. Wood consumption is significantly reduced and thus less CO2 is emitted.
