SUSTAINABILITY

Our world - our responsibility

We are commited to developing and producing sustainable solutions for the inhabitants of our shelters, for the local societies, as well as for the environment.

The production of our shelters does not contribute to the drainage of scarce natural resources such as deforestation, and we use recyclable and reusable materials.

Our shelters can be upgraded to more permanent solutions or be reused for permanent insulation in new or existing buildings. The durability and liveability of our shelters provide the basis for self-sustainability and the opportunity for families to live a more dignified existence.

In our effort to advance the Sustainable Development Goals we support the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact with respect to human rights, labour, enviroment and anti-corruption.

Throughout our value chain we strive to combine bottom line profits, sustainable enviroment practices and positive societal impact.
