Shell Foundation & Envirofit establish partnership to tackle Indoor Air Pollution

Announcement posted on behalf of CAROLINE OKWIRI, SHELL FOUNDATION, BREATHING SPACE PROGRAMME MANAGER:

As you know, it was always planned that after learning from the pilots with partners in India, Africa and Latin America, the Breathing Space programme would be spun-off to an intermediary organisation to help it to achieve its vision of helping sell millions of stoves globally to reduce Indoor Air Pollution.

We have learnt that in order to achieve scale and long-term sustainability we will need to adopt an approach that is commercially viable and which will ensure that we can continue to address indoor air pollution sustainably.

We are very happy to announce Shell Foundation will work with Envirofit who will set up a global stoves business that will design, manufacture and distribute improved cooking stoves globally.
