Sustainable Development Goals

Clean Cooking is a key driver of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) success. The use of open fires and solid fuels for cooking is one of the world’s most pressing health and environmental problems, directly impacting close to half the world’s population and causing nearly 4 million premature deaths each year. ​

SDG

The use of Jikokoa contributes to significant savings of time and money (on average $96/year per family) that can be utilized for other needs like education, healthcare, and income-generating activities.

SDG

Time savings can be used for other income-generating activities or for growing foods (like maize, potatoes, beans, etc). 

SDG

Jikokoa contributes to the reduction of indoor air pollution (smoke, particulate matter, and carbon monoxide), resulting in a decrease in respiratory diseases, headaches, and itchy eyes.

SDG

Jikokoa cooks faster than traditional stoves and uses less fuel, enabling children, particularly girls, to dedicate more time to education/school, instead of cooking. 

SDG

Women are mostly responsible for cooking and procuring fuel. Using a more efficient cookstove allows them to spend their time on more productive tasks as well as education. 

SDG

More than 800,000+ households benefit from BURN’s super fuel-efficient biomass appliances in East Africa. 

SDG

BURN’s local manufacturing facility in Ruiru, Kenya employs more than 400 people. In addition, its operations have created 200+ jobs for sales, marketing, distribution, and monitoring staff.

SDG

Jikokoa allows for efficient, clean and smokeless cooking, contributing to improved kitchen and living conditions in cities and communities. 

SDG

One Jikokoa reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 4.46 tons of CO2 per annum and therefore helps to combat climate change. 

SDG

One Jikokoa saves about 0.56 kg charcoal/day, translating into 204 kg charcoal savings per year. Charcoal production is a major driver of deforestation. Hence, Jikokoa helps to preserve forests and biodiversity.
