Farallon helps communities and companies find practical ways to reduce their environmental impacts, by consulting in two related areas:
We work with multidisciplinary teams to give our clients creative and innovative ways to conserve resources, use alternative energy, and recover value from waste streams. Our work borrows from nature, so that our solutions often include aspects of Biomimicry.
Our work is based on the fact that an integrated approach to the environment brings solutions that are also sustainable economically and socially. In other words, environmental improvements can pay their own way, when all costs and benefits are taken into account.
This approach is consistent with The Natural Step framework, Natural Capitalism (Hawken and Lovins), and The Ecology of Commerce (Hawken).
"Pollution is nothing but the
resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because
we've been ignorant of their value."
