There are, however, challenges ahead. A growing global population is putting a strain on resources, natural disasters are causing frequent setbacks, with hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and fires becoming a part of modern life – particularly in the developing world and we need radical action if we are to tackle climate change.
SHS can become part of the solution. By bringing together the world’s most innovative, eco-friendly housing, energy, water and health protection techniques and applying them at scale in the developing world, SHS is creating safer and more sustainable environments for generations to come.
No one can solve the challenges we face alone. But by sharing resources and working together, we can start to build a better world. We can start to build a better future.
Our vision demands a long-term commitment and that’s exactly what we make when we devise and deliver our projects. In everything we do, SHS is dedicated to building on what currently exists and helping communities thrive over the long term.
Our partners are all at the leading edge of their industries, finding new and innovative ways to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges, including:
The spread of diseases such as malaria and Zika.
Safety from earthquakes, hurricanes and fires
Availability of affordable safe housing for everybody
We have a network of partners who we work with in a range of ways. From our subsidiaries, to those we work with on collaborative projects, our network provides the skills needed to make a powerful and lasting difference to people in developing countries.
As well as ensuring all of our partners and their techniques are as eco-friendly as possible, we are also dedicated to meeting all 17 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
“The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.”
SHS is dedicated to aiding all of these goals. It currently shares 7, as highlighted, but is continuously working towards achieving all 17.
We can proudly say we achieve 7 of the list and are working tirelessly to achieve all of them.
