  • Oil and Gas emission schemes
  • Local community schemes to avoid the burning of fossil fuels and polluting the atmosphere
  • National and Provincial carbon credit accreditation for renewable energy installations – solar, hydro, geothermal, wind, etc

b. Clean Energy & Water Saving:

  • Installations of solar, geo thermal, hydro and wind energy farms as applicable to local needs

  • Taking ecology into account when planning new towns with care and consideration to the disturbance of the natural habitat, fauna and wildlife affected
  • Commissioning ecology studies around sensitive eco concerns in the DRC to measure and minimize negative impact to pygmy populations and national parks
