Since 2007, Envirofit has been on a journey that has seen the company progress from a start-up clean cookstove manufacturer to a growing business that has now served one million customers, impacting five million lives in 45 countries. While this is a milestone for Envirofit and the clean cookstove sector, the goal of reaching the nearly three billion people who lack access to clean cookstoves is still far from being achieved. Over the past eight years, we have learned from practical experiences – both ineffective and effective ways to design, develop, and distribute clean cookstoves.
Today, Envirofit is pleased to see the growing market of manufacturers, distributors, and last mile entrepreneurs that did not exist when we first embarked on this endeavor. Through sharing our journey we aim to highlight areas where governments, development agencies, NGOs, social investors, private companies, and fellow cookstove manufacturers can accelerate the expansion of the clean cookstove sector.
