Commitment to Action

Reducing Fuel Costs for Small Artisans

Commitment by

TIDE-India

In 2008, TIDE committed to initiate energy use reform in small businesses and artisanal industries (street food vendors, handloom textile units, silk reeling units, herbal medicine preparation etc) in Southern India by creating an infrastructure for making available fuel efficient stoves for their thermal energy needs. Adoption of 2,000 stoves per year would mean 30,000 tons of CO2 emission reduction each year, an increase in productivity and profitability, and better working conditions for those employed by these businesses.
