Clean Cooking Support Act

Statement of Support for Legislation to Accelerate Access to Clean Cooking

We, the undersigned organizations, affirm our support for the Clean Cooking Support Act, a bill that would help accelerate access to clean cooking globally. Our organizations represent a diverse coalition, including businesses, research institutions, advocacy organizations, and individuals, committed to clean cooking and the full range of benefits it can deliver for people and the planet.

Since 2010, more than 400 million people have gained access to clean cooking fuels and technologies, with more than 4.6 million lives saved from harmful health impacts attributed to household air pollution, according to the World Health Organization and Health Effects Institute.

However, despite these significant achievements, the pace of progress remains far too slow. The bipartisan Clean Cooking Support Act introduced this week would help accelerate progress, bolstering U.S. government support for clean cooking financing, research, innovation, standards, women’s empowerment, emissions reductions, and more. The bill would also establish an interagency working group across government agencies to oversee the planning, management, and coordination of clean cooking initiatives, while also authorizing funds to be appropriated through 2027 as necessary to carry out the bill.

We applaud the bill’s cosponsors for stepping up and taking action to address this critical issue, and we encourage other organizations to join us and to encourage their elected representatives to join our efforts to ensure no one’s life is limited by how they cook.
