  |   News, News_Home

SOLARKIOSK’s commitment to increase access to renewable energy, related products and new jobs in sub-Saharan Africa has enabled the company to join Business Call to Action (BCtA) – a unique multilateral alliance hosted by the United Nations Development Programme.

Launched in 2008, BCtA aims to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by challenging companies to develop inclusive business models that engage people with less than USD 8 per day in purchasing power as consumers, producers, suppliers and distributors.

SOLARKIOSK has joined BCtA by pledging to establish 940 E-HUBBs across Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya, providing sustainable energy products and consumer goods to local communities and creating at least 2,000 new jobs within the inclusive E-HUBB network.

“With its state-of-the-art design and inclusive operating model, SOLARKIOSK is bringing green and solar products and services to Africa’s underserved communities”, stated BCtA Programme Manager Paula Pelaez. “By delivering energy and labour-saving technologies to the last mile, the company is working towards the Sustainable Development Goals of access to sustainable energy for all, gender equality and more.”
