Support Our Work
Provide access to cleaner, locally appropriate, locally adapted
and locally produced fuels and stoves to the people who need them, NOW!
We’re driven by a single goal; to make sustainable cleaner cooking energy accessible for all - leaving no-one behind.
Our journey to achieve this goal started with the Wexford Declaration.
Created at the Pathways to Clean Cooking Conference in 2019, signatories of this Declaration share an ambition to work towards universal access to sustainable energy for cooking and other household needs. We recognise the need for a diverse range of energy solutions, including biomass, to achieve the United Nations goals relating to health, environment, climate change mitigation and energy justice.
Our focus now is driving global recognition of the immediate need to TRANSITION to cleaner cooking on our journey towards ‘clean’ renewable solutions.
This is our Cleaner Cooking Pledge. It unites businesses, governments, and other organisations behind a common vision to provide access to cleaner, locally appropriate, locally adapted and locally produced fuels and stoves to the 2 billion people who need them, NOW.
We pledge, and ask all supporters to work with us, to:
1. Provide access to cleaner cooking with proven solutions that meet local needs, to all families by 2030 and make them count towards the SDG 7
2. Diversify and upgrade a portfolio of clean options, from local renewable sources, for cooking and other needs, for all by 2050, thus reaching nett zero emissions
We do this to preserve our natural resources and forests, to combat climate change, to improve our health and our livelihoods, and to play our part in the global shifting of mindsets.
