Our Vision is of a sustainable human society

Our Core Purpose is to develop a genuine commitment to, and competence in, sustainable development throughout society


We have based our approach on The Natural Step. It’s an international non-governmental organisation, now in many countries throughout the world. It provides a common understanding of how we can develop sustainably based on a widely debated and scientifically tested process. It has guided many of the World’s major corporates such as Volvo, Ikea and Interface Carpets as well as communities in many countries. It provides a framework to incorporate sustainable practice into each and every aspect of our lives.
