Vivo Energy Launches “Green4Clean” Initiative, Bringing Renewable Energy to Schools

Vivo Energy Ghana has rolled out a new initiative ” Green4Clean” schools renewable energy project aimed at deepening renewable energy use in the country.

Speaking at a launch on Wednesday (May,29) Shirley Tony Kum, communications director, of Vivo Energy Ghana said the initiative seeks to empower students to be able to make informed decisions with regards to environmental sustainability of renewable energy.

“With the introduction of innovative educational programmes and practical demonstrations, we aim to inspire the next generation to embrace sustainable energy solutions and raise awareness about environmental challenges and the importance of adopting sustainable energy practices within the school and the broader community.

“The Green4Clean project has a three-pronged approach to implementation: awareness creation,  empowerment, and resourcing. Awareness creation by equipping the students with in-depth knowledge and skills needed to harness renewable energy sources through workshops and presentations,  hands on projects, awareness campaigns and field trips.

“Empowering the students to be able to make informed decisions with regards to environmental sustainability through project competitions and resourcing our implementing partners, the United Way Ghana and beneficiary schools with the needed tools and materials to help achieve our project goals,” she “said.

The “Green4Clean” programme under the theme; ‘Building a Sustaining Future,’ is an initiative of Vivo Energy Ghana in collaboration with United Way Ghana and Academic City University College.

She added that, “As a company, we believe that by providing access to resources and practical learning opportunities, we are nurturing a generation of eco-conscious leaders who will shape a more sustainable future.

“Together, we will work hand in hand to implement innovative programmes that promote renewable energy awareness and adoption in schools across our community, ” she said.

According to Worlanyo Ocloo, governing council president, United Way Ghana, the Celsius increase in temperature leads to about 4.5% in South Saharan Africa, which ultimately led to the death of many people in the same year the temperature goes up.

“Now by doing what we are doing here today, it means that we are chipping at that block. We are not just inculcating this new spirit of conservation and sustainability, which some of us didn’t know about until a few years ago.

“I would like to assure the district education office, the teachers, our team from United Way, the team from Vivo Energy, and Academic City, that on behalf of the board, we stand behind this project and will support with the needed resources to expand this project, ” he assured.

Habiba kotoman, municipal director of Education, La Dadekotopon Municipality, commended Vivo Energy Ghana and partners for such a wonderful initiative to educate students on how to harness renewable energy sources and their continuous support towards the development of the schools.

A key aspect was the presentation of solar lamps given to final year students at La Enobal and La Presby schools to help them prepare for the BECE and mitigate the impact of power outages on their studies.

Vivo Energy Ghana as a business focuses on developing solar solutions for electricity at retail stations and depots, and as such, have increased solar-operated stations to 25 sites and is collaborating with Shell’s Product Technical Team for environmentally compatible mobility market products.
