  • Hello Dear Anna and Kathrine, I am moving for a new home at this very moment and its been hectic at this side. I will do the project for the certification, but it will take a few more days. I guess I still have a few more days.
    But before that, I would like to say how greatfull I am for the informative and educative videos/course, all the staff who give their...

  • Thank you Kathrine.

  • To show how sustainability can cause less impact in the environment and can also generates good results for organisations in near future. Trying to create a green project for the company/organisation and get everyone involved.

  • I guess the main problem is when any ot the Humanitarian org´s can´t reach the people in need. That causes degradation not only for the environment but specially for people and children suffer the most.

  • I really think the NEAT tool addresses environmental issues when highlighted in a such detailed way as ICRC is doing it. Any climate impact issues needs to be addressed beforehand. In my previous postgrad as I wrote in the last chapter here, we studied and discuss all the facts that needs to be put into practice before the refugee camp (in this case) its...

  • This is very interesting. In my postgraduate course in Humanitarian Aid and Development we were raising this subject even before a refugee camp its settled. We were also discussing trainning of local staff, whenever possible, as they need to be aware of the issues concerning environment.
    The NEAT was for me very much as a key tool for any of the green...

  • Very informative examples on what´s been done in the camps with so many people.

  • I would try to find alternatives for the used using the plastic for recycling.

  • Very interesting and informative the explanation of Biogas System. Thank you.

  • Quite new for me Microgrid technology. Very interesting and looks very efficient.

  • After being installed, solar energy is the best option. Its just a matter of where in the world as there is a need of relying on weather.

  • Good solutions by using in a responsible manner.

  • At my previous work as I have mentioned here, as cabin crew, there were many concerns on cause less impact on board with all the products we delivered for customers/passengers. Recycling plastic bottles, cans of softdrinks and trying to choose a better way to reduce the weight to burn less fuel were one of the main goals of the company.

  • I don´t work at any Humanitarian Organisation at the moment but can share some ideas of what would be if I was part of such a project.
    Implementing best practices on sustainable programs for development of communities and people alike. Gather information about what it could be implemented according to culture and customs of the region in order to cause no...

  • Although the implementation of these practices may vary from one region/country to another, the green lab is a amazing system. Thank´s for all the information.

  • Does ICRC has any kind of guidance for those communities in conflict zones about the green response and environmental impact of certain actions? If in a conflict zone would that be very difficult to implement? I see sanitation one of the issues faced by most of the organisations.
    Thanks a lot, very good info.

  • Sustainability has become paramount for any organisation/company these days. The right and adequate use of all the resources and giving them the right place and recycle that it can be used again effectivelly, reducing the impact on environment and costs for the organisation.

  • Very interesting, all the process are very ethical.

  • As I understood the ISO guidelines are implemented before reaching the field. And the Standards of ILO are met at the field itself. Very interesting point to see how all the theory its put into practice are applied by the organisation.

  • In my previous job as cabin crew we had to recycle little cans of softdrinks like coca-cola and plastic water bottles from our onboard services. In the beginning was difficult as there is no much room in the aircraft or compartment to place the used plastic bottles and cans, eventually we manage to actually collect them on board and offload them in every...

  • Thank´s for the explanation Anna.

  • Another interesting subject. I just didn´t understand about the transportation. The organisation manufactures all the kitchen sets in the country they are in the moment of humanitarian assistance? As to transport by plane would have a bigger impact.

  • Very interesting how LCA is paramount before reaching the field. As I understood, life-cycle analysis must be done beforehand. It sounds simple and at the same time so important. In fact a life cycle of a product really counts when comes to reducing environmental impact and also costs for the organisation and the communities they are supporting. Well done...

  • I believe sustainable development has to fit humanitarian action in all aspects. Nevertheless, I guess during times of conflict may be a bit difficult to settle all the actions to be taken and the goals of sustainable development. May be implementing some kind of sustainable development in an state of emergency?

  • Very good and in depth introduction about the movement/organisation. I am very grateful for this opportunity.
