Gold Standard (GS) projects of Nova

The Nova Institute

The Nova Institute aims to improve the quality of life of low-income households.

Nova developed a voluntary GS methodology for its Basa Magogo projects, introducing an alternative ignition technique for domestic coal fires.

The first GS projects are now registered, and several others have been listed in the GS registry.
