The Scientific Approach
The Greenloop team is dedicated to delivering a true, yet positive message on environmental issues and the many ways to tackle them. Our definition and biomimetic practice of sustainability and resilience are scientifically grounded. The Greenloop team chose to stick to and compose with the latest scientific facts to avoid the deleterious impact of green-washing on the general public’s (consumer) opinion.
Our understanding of scientific data and commitment to the truth relies on the fact that our team comprises experts with academic degrees in the following diverse and complementary scientific fields in technology, life and human sciences:
