TotalEnergies to Provide 100M People Access to Clean Cooking by 2030 in Africa, India

TotalEnergies has announced its plan to provide 100 million people in Africa and India access to clean cooking by 2030, thus investing more than $400 million in the development of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for cooking.

Besides make clean cooking affordable for as many people as possible, the Company will develop the use of digital pay-as-you-cook technologies that allow customers to pay only as they use the LPG cylinder, rather than having to pay the full value of the cylinder volume up front.

According to International Energy Agency, the access to cleaner cooking fuels such as LPG would result in emission savings of up to 1.5 billion tons of CO2 equivalent by 2030 (of which 900 million tons in Africa) – equivalent to the CO2 emissions produced by the air and maritime industries in 2022 or the deforestation of forests the size of Ireland each year.

TotalEnergies Chairman and CEO Patrick Pouyanné said in a press release, “We praise this initiative by the IEA, which TotalEnergies embraces to promote access to reliable, affordable and sustainable cooking solutions for as many people as possible, in line with the Company’s purpose.”

“By developing access to clean cooking in Africa and India, TotalEnergies aims to have a positive impact on the environment and on people’s health, while also helping to reduce gender inequalities in these regions. Clean cooking contributes to long-term social, economic and human development in a more sustainable way,” he added.

TotalEnergies is already a major player in the distribution of LPG in cylinders, with more than 50 million people in Africa and Asia benefiting already from a reliable and cleaner energy,
