SOIL at COP24: The Opportunity Ahead of Us
SOIL’s container-based sanitation solutions have been intentionally designed to be resistant to natural disasters and our full-cycle household sanitation service helps Haiti – one of the most climate-vulnerable spots on earth – adapt to and mitigate the effects of global climate change.
“It is now devastatingly clear that tackling the global climate crisis is going to take immediate and urgent action,” says SOIL board member Ingrid Henrys.
In the lead up to the COP24 conference this week, which SOIL is honored to participate in as a winner of the 2018 Momentum for Change award, Ingrid spoke about climate change and climate action on behalf of SOIL’s teams in Haiti.
“If the mounting damage from natural disasters, particularly in vulnerable frontline communities, isn’t evidence enough of a climate teetering on the brink, the new report from the IPCC backs up the scale of the challenge – and opportunity – ahead of us. We must boldly rethink many of the global systems governing our planet, but I believe in our ability to do what we must. Climate change is now, and so action must happen now.” SOIL, Ingrid shares, “is taking action by building a solution to climate change in an unlikely place – the toilet!”
