What we do
We offer consultancy, tools and training to assist individuals and organisations in becoming measurably more sustainable… making a real difference.
A comprehensive ‘one planet’ approach is intended to reduce the impact of your way of life to the level that the planet can provide, and reintroduce more, and more varied, nature into your environment.
Optimise your decisions
Any public or private body or individual can use the approach to optimise all their spending (and ultimately planning) decisions in order to reduce its ecological and carbon footprint to a measurably sustainable level. This approach captures many benefits not reached by a piecemeal one.
Optimising your spending decisions for example affects supply chains by creating a market for the kind of supplier in the economy that embraces social well-being concerns, zero carbon, non-polluting and ‘closed loop’ production and consumption (where nothing is wasted, as in nature).
It often means more local production and supply (cf the Preston model), an end to waste, more jobs, greater prosperity and improved health. There is everything to gain.
We also train individuals and community groups in reducing their ecological footprint and in applying for planning permission to undertake a One Planet Development in Wales or elsewhere.
Be sure you’re effective
A key point in all cases is measurability, to verify that your efforts are worthwhile and achieving their goals.
We can design for you a strategy and programme that sets targets, performance indicators and evaluation points over time to reduce your ecological footprint in a way that’s appropriate to your particular circumstances.
It would be accompanied by capacity building (training), and monitoring and modeling tools to optimise spending decisions, check progress and encourage behaviour change that sticks.
The result will be that you will save money and resources, cut pollution, and improve the presence of nature, personal health and well-being.
