sustainable development : our business model

While great progress has been made in alleviating poverty over the past few decades, traditional models of development too often involved one-off projects and donations outside of a coherent policy framework. As a result, positive impacts were frequently short-lived and communities remained in a state of dependency.

To avoid such pitfalls, Season Development emphasises long-lasting partnerships with many of the world’s foremost development agencies. We also rigorously control our supply chains to ensure that only the highest quality products reach end-users.

Above all, we recognise that development can only be sustainable if it enables communities to take their future into their own hands. For this reason, we tailor our products and services to the areas that best contribute to self-sufficiency for developing regions.
