Businesses need to remain in business to effect positive change, and businesses that succeed are businesses that adapt. Adopting sustainable business practices, installing a sustainable culture, and implementing circular systems will steer a business towards the future economy.


A vibrant and healthy environment provides many more opportunities than one that is corrupted and sick. Businesses that don't merely minimise their local, regional and global environmental impacts but rather adopt restorative measures will be the successful businesses of the future.


A business is people. Happy, fulfilled people achieve success. A successful business honours, respects and values all its staff, suppliers, customers, and communities, all the while providing safe, inclusive and meaningful work. A business with strong sustainability credentials will recruit and retain the brightest talent.

In nature there is no such thing as waste. In nature, nothing is wasted.

David Suzuki

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Albert Einstein

'Kï mai ki a au, 'He aha te mea nui i te ao?' Māku e kï atu, 'He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata' If you ask me what is most important in this world?, I will reply, 'People, people, people'.
