A Bit on Our Core Values
We held our annual retreat a week ago. It was a great opportunity to collectively extract ourselves from the standard day-to-day fare and give some thought to who we are and where we’re going. We started the day by reaffirming our vision, mission and values. In doing so, we came to two conclusions: first, we don’t revisit them often enough, and second, they are pretty well done.
In particular, our core values seemed to perfectly depict who we are, how we approach our work, and why we do what we do. As such, we thought it makes some sense to do a bit better job getting them in front of our collaborators and partners. They’ll eventually have a more prominent place on our website, but until that happens, here they are:
We believe we have the power to transform business as usual and make our world ‘green by default’.
We’re not going to greenwash, and we won’t let our clients either. Seriously, it’s not an option.
We recognize the interdependence of the world’s economic, ecological and social systems and believe every decision made should reflect consideration of all three systems.
We believe we’re not in this alone and rely on our friends, clients, business partners and colleagues to help us create a resilient future.
We believe it’s no coincidence that the edge of ecosystems is exceptionally innovative, creative, resilient and dynamic. We’re not going over the edge, but we’ll hang out there for a spell; it’s a great place to be.
We have a thirst for learning and are always searching for ways to do our work better.
Onward and upward.
