WHAT WE BELIEVE
Even the smallest actions can make an enormous difference.
A few pebbles cascading down a mountainside are barely noticeable. However, add a few thousand more pebbles and soon the echoing roar of a landslide can be heard. With this in mind, we gain an understanding as to how our environmental crisis was created. Perhaps one pebble at a time will also be the solution.
WHAT IS SUSTAINABILITY?
Sustainability means acknowledging and respecting the limits of our earth. This change in perspective highlights the earth’s resources as finite and acknowledges humanity’s survival is directly linked to the health of our various ecosystems. Many of which are on the verge of collapse. We need to view ourselves as one element in the complexity of nature, rather than a lion tamer trying to orchestrate the show.
Sustainable Business means operating in a manner which prioritizes the health of our planet while focusing on providing a service or good which benefits humanity. Sustainable businesses are innovative, successful through a triple bottom line approach and are focused on longevity rather than quarterly profits. Organizations with forward thinking and strategic planning will remain successful even when prices paid for natural resources more accurately reflect their value.
It is important to note that our unsustainable actions have directly and indirectly resulted in Climate Change, loss of biodiversity, social inequalities, deforestation, pollution and disease.
