Climate change drives humanitarian need. But providing relief and recovery services is energy intensive, especially when performed at an industrial scale.

It's time to green the international aid system.

Footprint's service model combines sustainability consulting with clean energy deployment so every humanitarian organization can fulfill their commitment to first do no harm, and every affected community can build back better.

Our beta calculator is up and running, give it a try!


Check out our first demo project.

Fall 2017 - We offset diesel use at the Rampart Urgent Care Clinic using a deployable solar micro-grid.

 


Step 1: Build prototype

 

We are integrating environmental impact calculators with humanitarian logistics software to build a simple, effective platform for evaluating energy use in humanitarian response.

 

Active Responders - Take our Sustainability Survey

Step 2: Partner and deploy

 

We are working with humanitarian organizations to test our service model by developing sustainability metrics, deploying renewable energy systems and reporting progress to donors.

 
 

Step 3: Evaluate and improve

 

Based on feedback from field-trials, we will continuously revise our service model, making it as practical and user friendly as possible.

 
 

Step 4: Build out complexity

 

We intend to make Footprint the go-to platform for comprehensive sustainability assessments and real-time improvement of humanitarian response. So that every organization can ensure their interventions do no harm, and every affected community can develop through disaster.

 

The FootprinT Project started at a hackathon...

Four strangers came together to tackle environmental degradation in humanitarian interventions. Leveraging our combined experience in disaster first response, data science, and UX/UI, we turned out to make a pretty good team. Because thirty-six hours (and almost as many coffees) later, we pitched our idea, and won.

Now we've begun turning our idea into reality. Stay tuned...
