PBS’ intention and ambition from the beginning has been to have a product adapted to difficult situations, harsh environments and humid climates. A product that can be of great use in vulnerable areas, off-grid. A product which is robust and can be easily handled in a situation of crisis and disaster. These thoughts have been around since start and with that in mind we have developed our (H)unit, even though along the way we have found a number of applications that are in complete different areas.
In 2021, we applied to Sustaid, which is a collaboration forum for sustainable innovations
in international crisis and disaster as well as development aid. I am happy to say that we were choosen as one of the 25 selected companies for the program.
Through Sustaid, we receive business development assistance adapted for this niche, education in procurement as well as education regarding the UN Global Sustainability Goals (SDGs), etc. We also enjoy lectures and personal contact with key people in aid organizations (such as the Medical Mission ”Läkarmissionen”, SIDA and the Red Cross), the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB), The Swedish Defense Research Agency (FOI), the education system (such as KTH) and others.
Grateful to be part of Sustaid and interesting to see how we can open up for this first thought market.
