WE ARE DEDICATED TO DRIVING
INNOVATION IN BUSINESS MODELS THAT
DELIVER SUSTAINABILITY, CONSERVATION
AND THE FULL VALUATION OF
We understand that the world is locked in an ever-evolving balancing act between the
natural systems necessary for sustaining life, the availability of resources from those natural
systems and market economies driving the use and sustainability of both. We believe that
climate change is a policy and market failure that will continue until the global
economy is structured to truly value it's finite resources.
It is our strong belief that there is not merely a need, but an obligation for a fundamental shift in the paradigm of business in the new climate economy. We believe that economic growth and sustainability can go hand-in-hand and that there is a viable business model in sustainability as a product. We stand behind forest conservation as a market-driven product and believe that innovation and investment in such businesses will ultimately drive economic growth rather than inhibit it.
