ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that provides temporary shelter and life-saving supplies to displaced people and families. The organisation was founded in 2000 in the town of Helston, Cornwall.
Each ShelterBox typically contains a tent designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, water purification kit, blankets, tools and other necessities to help a family survive after a natural disaster.
This is ShetlerBox’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting. It calculated the emissions of its Helston, London and Truro office operations for the year ending December 2017 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
