Travel efficiency

Reduce the environmental impacts of MSF’s travel.

Travel, both related to MSF’s core humanitarian response and to our administrative operations, represents a significant share of our carbon footprint.

Recognizing the environmental impact of travel, MSF has undertaken several initiatives to actively reduce its travel footprint. These efforts include rigorous tracking of travel emissions, promoting sustainable travel practices, implementing travel guidance and policy frameworks, exploring advancements in aviation technologies, and transforming the way the organization works, including staffing practices that minimize the need for extensive travel.

By prioritizing travel efficiency, MSF not only contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but also optimizes resource allocation, enhances operational effectiveness, and aligns our practices with sustainability principles. These comprehensive measures underscore MSF’s commitment to sustainability and its commitment to minimizing the environmental impact of our operations.
