I saw this image last week at the Cradle to Cradle Conference in San Francisco – it brilliantly summarizes the process companies can work through to become  “beneficial” in terms of their impact on global ecosystems, not just “less bad”.

The 100% GOOD GOAL:
Biological nutrients in safe carbon cycle. Technical nutients in continuous reuse periods.

We work with corporate enterprises to develop positive goals and strategies, and assist in the execution with specific product design teams using multi-year, real quantity and quality continuous improvement strategies.
