Energy efficient ovens in Ghana
This year JCP has chosen to support a project that produces energy efficient and clean-burning kitchen ovens in Ghana. These furnaces improve the efficiency of combustion of charcoal. The main purpose is to reduce the consumption of charcoal as fuel in poor households in the Ashanti region, in Ghana. Locals are offered less expensive stoves to replace the traditional once which exposes them to toxic fumes and gases from the combustion of charcoal, while cooking. It is especially mothers and children who are exposed.
As the more environmentally friendly stoves are made locally, this also contributes to new jobs for the locals.
– We are proud to contribute to better environment in addition to create jobs. It’s important to give back and help those who need it, says Øystein Tynning.

Driving: 20 903 200 km by car
