Bboxx and Unilever Partner to Connect Over 1 Million People to Clean Energy Products in Kenya

Despite significant efforts to date, nearly 40% of the rural population in Kenya don’t have access to electricity currently, demonstrating the urgent need for energy solutions in the country[1]. Access to clean energy (SDG7) is a core sustainable development goal, proven to have strong social and economic benefits. Bboxx and Sunlight will be deploying their strengths and resources to tackle this issue head on.

This partnership complements Bboxx’s existing services and footprint in Kenya, with Sunlight’s heritage and distribution capacity set to create new channels to reach consumers in Kenya. Through joining forces, Bboxx and Sunlight will connect an additional 1 million people in Kenya, providing access to essential clean energy products and services over the next three years.

Mansoor Hamayun, CEO and Co-Founder of Bboxx, said: “At Bboxx, we understand the importance of partnering with industry leaders to achieve the best positive outcomes for our customers. We are therefore delighted to be partnering with one of the leading FMCG players, enabling us to deliver clean energy access to millions of households across Kenya.
