In Uganda and Malawi, we’ve been working with our partners to provide thousands of fuel efficient cooking stoves. These stoves are much more efficient than a traditional indoor fire. They burn just as hot, but they use less firewood and produce significantly less smoke. Once they’re in use, they help our farmers to lead healthier lives
Fuel efficient stoves also represent a significant time and cost savings for our smallholders. They minimise the amount of time spent gathering firewood or the cost of buying the fuel. Some of these stoves are even being produced in the communities to help provide an income for those who make them.
Our work in Malawi also represents a big step in our journey towards being a truly carbon-neutral business. Working with our partners, we track the amount of carbon that we’ve managed to save by providing access to these cooking stoves. Every stove that we install helps us to offset the carbon emissions of our supply chain in a way that truly benefits the people we work with.
