Sustainability

At Re-build, we believe sustainability and human rights are inseparable. Access to basic needs such as clean water, sanitation, adequate shelter, energy, health care, food security and the protection of biodiversity form important parts of basic human rights.

We love the Earth and want to protect it in every way we can by minimising the damage we do to it. It is of paramount importance that all of our work overseas adopts the sustainability ethos. Our work will be carried out by utilising all the natural resources in the villages, towns, and cities we work in to limit our carbon footprint. Although there are challenges to up- keeping the sustainability features in assisting communities where the trauma of their experiences have consumed their lives, we say ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’, and therefore will make use of all professional guidance  in our projects to create sustainable methods of work and construction. Throughout our work, in the communities we work with we will inform and educate those members of the community who are not as informed as others on how important it is for us to meet their needs by implementing environmental sustainability, socio-political sustainability, and economic sustainability, so as not to compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Sustainable development will be followed through with the local organisations and authorities we work with.
