FEASIBILITY GO GREEN MSF

MSF recognizes that we need to be environmentally responsible and that we must take action now to reduce our environmental footprint.


At MSF OCG, we have therefore committed to reduce our carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 (compared to 2019). To achieve this goal, we are working together with the Climate Action Accelerator to build an environmental roadmap.


At the beginning of the year, you posted on ThinkUp about 80 ideas on how to reduce our environmental footprint.

Thanks a lot!

Those ideas have been complemented with other ones from internal and external experts and grouped in 33 key solutions.


Now, we need your help to assess the feasibility of those solutions to make sure to have an ambitious and realistic environmental roadmap.


This forum will be open from 1 April and closed on 24 April.


Thank you in advance for your participation!

NEW IDEAS TO DEVELOP

Please post here all your innovative ideas that could meet our operational needs and that you would like the community to focus on. You can propose ideas that are very preliminary or ideas that you have already started to work on.
Ideas will be incubated and developed by a team. Best ideas will go to proof of concept and then if successful piloted in the field.

UNSOLVED NEEDS/PROBLEMS

Are you facing a specific challenge in your project and you do not know how to solve it? Is there a need you think MSF should invest in solving? Please share here with the community the challenges, needs or problems that innovation could help with!
The most pressing needs will be prioritized and specific campaigns will be launched to harness the power of the MSF innovation community and its collective intelligence.

PILOTED PROJECTS AND LESSONS LEARNED

Here is the place for MSF success and failure stories. All solutions you have already tested are welcome. Sharing will help the MSF community to get inspired and not to duplicate solutions.


Please share here the ideas and solution you have tested already! Please share successes but also failures! Both will be very useful for the community.
