UN award recognizes cookstoves for contribution to global sustainability

At a time when national and international politics seemed stacked against environmental sustainability and the protection of our climate, it is comforting to know there are so many individuals, organizations, businesses, and government entities committed to ensuring a healthy and green world for future generations.

For the third year in a row, StoveTeam has been awarded the National Energy Globe Award by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in cooperation with United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). This year the award honors our work with Inversiones Falcón making safe, affordable and fuel-efficient cookstoves a reality in El Salvador. Out of 2,000 entries, we are humbled to have been selected for one of the 178 awards.

Between 1990 and 2010, El Salvador lost close to 24% of its forest cover, leaving Salvadorans vulnerable to devastating soil erosion, crop and water table damage, and mudslides. The Ecocina reduces the wood required for cooking by 50% helping to protect trees and forests.

Congratulations to all entrants and thank you for your commitment to global sustainability. Your environmental leadership is needed now more than ever!
