Commenting on the award, d.light Marketing Director Juliet Ziswa said: “When our founders first pitched their mission to impact 100 Million Lives by 2020 with the Solar Home System and high-quality solar lighting systems, they were met with a lot of scepticism but they kept pushing and built a series of robust and capable teams to make the mission a reality.”
“The award recognises the hard work of our key stakeholders, it recognises the dedication of our employees, the determination of our partners and the support of our customers who have trusted us and given us an opportunity to provide affordable, healthy and sustainable lighting and entertainment solutions,” she added.
She further stated. “Our goal is to transform the lives of 1 billion people with sustainable products by 2030. Awards such as this are here to remind our staff and to assure our customers that we are ready to create an impact in the world and that we have what it takes to transform lives with sustainable products and that we are motivated to achieve this great goal,”
