Our Operations Model Has Five Components
All stove production is contracted. The projects do not maintain buildings, equipment, labor, or inventory. Currently, the projects only facilitate the placement of the Champion TLUD stove (shown in photo), which was designed by Dr. Paul Anderson, the Founder and Executive Director of Juntos NFP. The stoves are totally made in India for India projects.
The coordination of activities in India is by Moulindu (Sapient) who operationalized the system of sales and services to the stove users, including the selection and management of the local employees who have at least monthly contact with every stove-using household. In exchange for his efforts, Moulindu receives contracted compensation from the sales of carbon credits.
All carbon credit (CC) procedures (including POA, CPA, and verification) are handled by atmosfair for maximum quality and security. One year of certified usage of a Champion TLUD stove generates four (4) carbon credits (CCs) that, upon annual verifications already conducted four times, are registered with the UNFCCC and Gold Standard (GS). Atmosfair offers these and other CCs.
Juntos Energy Solutions NFP receives funds from three types of sources: donations/grants; loans; and sales of CCs. Juntos NFP funds are used for several purposes, including the purchase of stoves (from the contracted suppliers) for sales to the households. Moulindu-Sapient (the implementer) conducts the sales of these stoves into Juntos-owned CPA projects that were created with atmosfair guidance. Although with different serial numbers and CPA project ownership, the Juntos activities are identical to those of atmofair and under the single POA that covers all of India. Moulindu (Sapient) implements the activities for both atmosfair and Juntos. Juntos only offers carbon credits from TLUD stove projects.
These households of financially poor families are the soul and purpose and engine of the entire business plan, including the impact to control climate change. They operate these stoves every day and to them must flow sustainable benefits of several types. Details follow.
