Other Organizational Expertise
We are proud to support a workforce that is 60 percent female, thus empowering women in roles traditionally considered to be “for men only.” BURN’s revolutionary cookstoves reduce deforestation, improve health, and reduce poverty. We leverage our carbon offsets to develop additional local sales and distribution channels to reach even more households. One Jikokoa reduces greenhouse emissions by up to 4.46 tons of CO2 per annum and is equal to taking 2 cars off the road. BURN is currently developing the most affordable cooking solution for hotels, restaurants & schools among other commercial stoves.

Clean Cooking Activities
Founded in 2011, BURN was created with the aspiration to save lives and forests by revolutionizing the clean cookstove sector. While traditional, inefficient cookstoves can bankrupt families, damage their health and destroy forests, BURN’s best-in-class stoves can save families money on fuel, limit indoor air pollution and protect forests. BURN is now Africa’s leading clean cooking company and one of the only carbon-offset project developers to cover the full carbon value chain, from project design and in-house monitoring to credit issuance. Headquartered in Kenya and with direct operations in 10 African countries, BURN employs 2,500 people across Africa. The company has made and distributed over 4 million clean cookstoves, transforming the lives of over 22 million people and avoiding 17 million tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.

BURN is proud to be a long-standing member of the Clean Cooking Alliance. We appreciate the CCA's work to continually elevate the urgent need to address the clean cooking crisis.
We have relied on the CCA for networking with organizations active in Sub Saharan Africa along the value chain; participating in conferences to both share our learnings and learn from others; funding opportunities; and synergistic marketing opportunities.
