project highlights

Carbon finance in Mexican households

In the Valley of Mexico and in Northern Baja California, residential water fixtures are typically inefficient, using about 40% more water and 25% more energy than more modern, water-saving devices available on the market. The MIF partnered with Camino Sabio Azul to achieve economic savings for low-income residents through reduced water usage by implementing water- and energy-saving devices using financing from carbon credits.
