Aujourd'hui, les entreprises sont confrontées à de nouveaux enjeux qui remettent en question leurs modèles économiques : réchauffement climatique, raréfaction des ressources naturelles, vieillissement de la population, appauvrissement de certaines classes sociales… Il est donc urgent de réconcilier innovation et développement durable pour imaginer de nouveaux business modèles.

Resilient Cities - The Rockefeller Foundation

The Rockefeller Foundation launched the 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge to enable 100 cities to better address the increasing shocks and stresses of the 21st century. One hundred cities from across the globe will be selected to receive technical support and resources for developing and implementing plans for urban resilience over the next three years.

Resilience, surfing the wings of change

Surfing the Waves of Change is an animation exploring the idea of community resilience using the metaphor of a surfer to explain how communities can make themselves more resilient in these changing times. This project is supported by The Carnegie UK Trust, Comhar Media Fund and Trocaire.

Vision & Mission

Greenloop is committed to serve society by reconciling human activities with their natural surroundings, thus preparing society to learn how to adapt, become resilient and ultimately transition to the post-fossil fuel era.

Our vision of sustainability relies on scientifically established principles that are encompassed by biomimicry. By sustainability, we mean and aim at:

  • a paradigm shift from a problem solving to system thinking society

  • becoming and staying compatible with the functioning of the biosphere

  • getting inspired by past and present earth species that have mastered the art of making the most of the resource at reach without jeopardizing the biogeochemical cycles on earth

Conferences & Training

GREENLOOP DISSEMINATES AND TEACHES ON ITS BIOMIMETIC APPROACH VIA CONFERENCES, WORKSHOPS, COURSES AND PUBLICATIONS.

Conferences 

 

Introductory conferences to biomimicry

Learn more about the potential of biomimicry for innovation and sustainability. During these short conference sessions (30 min to 1h30) you and your audience can learn how the living world serves as an excellent library and example for products, systems and organisational design. Keywords: system thinking, biomimicry, sustainability, resilience, smart product design, collective intelligence and new collaborative business models.   

Strategic Analysis & Resilience Assessment

Assessment and feedback analysis are important for pro-active management. They both are key in successfully running a sustainable organisation.

We found that the health of an organisation depends, as is does for any living complex system, on its ability to assess one’s own status and adjust accordingly. Organisations striving for true sustainability have understood the importance of tuning their antennas to make sense of ever-evolving signals in their direct and indirect environment.

Greenloop helps you to:

  • asses your current sustainability status;

  • identify your goal; 

  • plan your route;

  • analyse your progress.

Innovation & Transition Strategy

Greenloop has created a simple yet powerful methodology and innovative tools to help companies see sustainability as an opportunity.

Derived from life’s design principles, our tools help our clients set a tailored vision on sustainability for their organisations.

This approach thus enables the use and valorization of a large and adapted set of new and existing management tools to be applied with respect to the goals set.

Transition management integrates all of Greenloop's skills and competences, and includes some or all of the following services, depending on the client's needs:
