DGB achieves project milestones and receives €600,000 in upfront payment

Dutch Green Business Group N.V. (“DGB” or “the Group”) (Euronext: DGB: NL0009169515), a leading carbon project developer and ecosystem restoration company, achieved two important milestones in the development of its Hongera Energy Efficient Cookstove Project in Kenya (the “Project”).

On 31 August 2022, a renowed Buyer (the ¨Buyer¨) committed to buy 507,720 carbon credits from the Project, funding 100% of all Capital Expenditures and providing DGB with upfront cash payments of €1.7 million. 

The Project involves the manufacturing and distribution of 150,000 energy-efficient cookstoves and is designed as a CO2-reduction project under the Gold Standard methodology ''Technologies and Practices to Displace Decentralized Thermal Energy Consumption''. The project design has been drafted, and the first cookstoves have now been produced. DGB received €600,000 for achieving these milestones.

The Buyer plans to retire its share of the credits once verified, claiming it against its organization's carbon footprint. DGB expects to sell the remaining expected 1.3 million carbon credits (approximately 70,25% of the Project) on the open, voluntary carbon credit market after the first issuance of the credits starts in Q3 2023. The current average price for verified carbon reduction credits from cookstove projects is $10,50 per tonne of CO2e.

The Project is one of DGB´s five projects in its project pipeline, totalling over 27.2 million tonnes of expected verified CO2-emission reduction.
