For a paradigm shift from conventional construction to sustainable building in Galapagos!

The project addresses two challenges of climate change: adaptation and mitigation.

Mitigation with energy reduction in buildings and adaptation because it changes paradigms about building and demystifies that comfort is only possible with energy consumption.

Implemented in the Galapagos archipelago for the formulation of standards, regulatory framework and transfer of knowledge on energy efficiency to island regions of Latin America and the Caribbean in the area of climate change resilience.
