Nature-based solutions for us and our planet

Assessing a sustainable living environment

The mission is to bring man and nature together into a state of balance. Concerned with global challenges like biodiversity, climate adaptation, loss of landscape and human wellbeing, our methodology draws on measurements like nature based solutions and green innovations to create healthy and thriving environments. With all the challenges ahead, like environmental issues, ever growing cities and the loss of biodiversity, it is clearer than ever that a different way is needed for the way we live and the way we organize and manage our own habitat. 

It took ten years of research, development and experimenting to become a front leader in the assessment of a sustainable living environment. Unique tools and services help to assess sustainability with so-called passports for plants, products and materials. Moreover, we assess the living environment. Distinguishing different scales and sizes, we assess area's like suburbs and industrial parks, middle seized projects like sport parks and school yards, and thirdly, private gardens. It is simple and practical for all the stakeholders involved and it allows to assess sustainability in order to formulate and guarantee ambitions. A board of renowned scientists validates the concept on a regular base and provides valuable input.
