Cooking with wood costs the global economy more than the GDP of Italy ($2.4 trillion) and creates more carbon emissions (1 gigaton) than the global airline industry.
At the household level, this problem mainly affects women, causing poor health, limited opportunities, and safety concerns. On average the impact cost is $3,000 per household per year.
Achieving universal access to modern cooking is technically possible. The convergence of digitization, carbon markets, and e-commerce is disrupting traditional structures in Base of Pyramid markets and driving significant change.
ATEC's unique Impact Flywheel is the strategic core of how we solve clean cooking. Through creating scalable partnerships between BoP households and international capital markets, our flywheel enables ATEC to offer high quality, low cost IoT stoves to BoP markets at scale. With each stove automatically validating carbon credits up to 15 years, ATEC decreases upfront costs for consumers, which further increases sales and credit revenue.
Our goal is to be the global leader in clean cooking by 2030 through disruptive technology. Join our flywheel to solve clean cooking by getting in contact with us through the form below.
