Business details

Envirofit’s Improved Cook Stoves reduce the carbon emissions with each stove being capable of reducing up to 286gms of black carbon, saving 1.5 Tonnes of CO2 savings and 0.8 tonnes of wood. These savings have a direct impact on the health of the user, family and environment as biomass cook stoves smoke can be more harmful than vehicular emissions and cigarette smoking. The saving of wood is primarily important to avoid deforestation and depletion of forests. The social impacts can be attributed to the movement of the consumers to the next level between traditional stoves and LPG. This contributes to a substantial increase in their living standards.
