A sustainable shelter portfolio

Climate change and displacement are increasingly interconnected. As extreme weather events and environmental conditions worsen with global heating, they are creating conditions for further forced displacement. The need for temporary shelters is expected to grow dramatically, as will their performance and cost requirements.

Navigating this challenging context, we are taking a step forward to acknowledge and reduce our climate impact. Our product development team continues to develop our shelters to ensure we meet the Paris Agreement’s GHG emission reduction targets.

During 2023, we began this work, designing a system that is not just a response to the growing needs but a shift in our design approach, moving towards an even more sustainable and incremental model.

Our new shelter portfolio is not just a single solution but a versatile system designed to meet diverse needs. It will be built around a lightweight, robust, and reliable frame and available in various materials to suit different needs and budgets. Moreover, it can be upgraded over time to meet changing needs. The modular system allows for various sizes and shapes and is versatile enough for humanitarian sectors such as shelter, health, education, and protection.
