Envirofit was founded on the idea that enterprise principles can transform the development of household and commercial energy technologies for people living in energy poverty. In 2003, Envirofit set out to change the way energy products were developed for people living in energy poverty. With a goal of improving harmful traditional cooking methods, Envirofit innovated a product line of aesthetic, high performance cookstoves tailored to the needs of customers in emerging markets. Years of consumer research and product development proved that people who lack access to electricity and clean cooking solutions do desire and will buy high quality products that will improve their lives.
Today, Envirofit has grown from a business with one product, to a global company serving over 5 million people, with over a dozen user-designed products, and regional headquarters in East Africa, West Africa, Asia, and Latin America that offer the local production and distribution of clean cookstoves.
