How we're building climate-smart homes for humanity
The climate-crisis is a very real threat, to which the world’s urban poor are particularly vulnerable. The affordable housing deficit must be addressed in a rapidly scalable and environmentally viable way to achieve the systematic change needed by 2050.
Disrupting the housing market, through the delivery of affordable homes, has the ability to increase access to clean energy, support the transition to clean forms of transport, and direct finance flows to low-carbon assets – all while dramatically improving the lives of those in urban Africa and Asia.
Our climate-smart partners are disrupting the construction market with pioneering technologies and materials – delivering affordable low-carbon homes that are environmentally friendly and resilient. Learn more about how we’re building climate-smart.
