The science tells us :
The Earth is a closed system with regard to matter.
The Earth is an open system with regard to energy.
Matter tends to disperse over time.
Photosynthesis is the basis of most of the value created within the Earth's systems.
These simple observations have profound implications for the conditions necessary for lasting, resilient success, for any organization. We apply those principles through a rigorous, proven methodology to enable clients to evalute, prioritize and execute on strategies that will align their efforts with fundamental natural processes and systems.
Strategic Organizations operate in alignment with the processes and resource flows of the natural world. They
-- reduce costs associated with resource scarcity, regulation, and waste disposal,
-- manage and mitigate risk associated with regulation, product liability, and negative PR,
-- innovate effectively,
-- access markets and capital unavailable to their competitors,
-- have increased and resilient margins,
-- attract, motivate and retain top talent, and
-- have premium brands.
And they create a lasting positive legacy.
