Toyola Energy Group is a renowned indigenous social enterprise that specializes in selling energy-efficient cookstoves across West Africa. Established in 2003 by Suraj Wahab in Ghana, the company has grown significantly and operates in multiple countries including Nigeria, Togo, Benin, and Senegal. They are committed to promoting clean cooking solutions by manufacturing and distributing cookstoves that are more efficient and environmentally friendly than traditional methods in the region. A notable achievement of Toyola Energy is their pioneering use of carbon finance to promote clean cooking.

The Swedish Energy Agency has purchased Certified Emission Reductions that resulted from this program. Their efforts have been recognized through numerous awards, including the Ashden International Gold Award for Sustainability in 2011 and the CEO, Suraj Wahab had the privilege of meeting King Charles III. Suraj Wahab was also voted Africa's leading Energy personality.
