Impact Performance


Impact thesis

GTF’s focus in South Asia is on ‘village level’ utilities for clean water, renewable energy, biogas, sewer (black) water and grey water. The Integrated Rural Development model (IRD) is this multi-utility approach, which occurs in stages, with clean water and an increase in agriculture yields being the first two stages.
GreenTech-C’s affiliate’s water processing projects have affected lives in more than four thousand villages with measurable results in cleaner water and public health. GreenTech-C’s selected biomass project firm generating electricity at the village level is now present in several hundred villages, improving the lives of approximately 200,000 people as of 2013. These projects are considered at the development stage and will now be organized by GTF to be scaled through replication as part of GTF’s IRD model.
GreenTech-C started its business in China in mid-2011. While focusing on an export-oriented economy, most of the 31 jurisdictions (22 provinces/5 Regions/4 directly controlled cities) in China neglected the environment and natural resources-facing hazardous environmental conditions and growing shortages of clean water and soil without pollutants.
