LEADING WITH HEAD AND HEART
An effective organization revolves around values that define its character and culture. These are ours.
Speed. When the planet's on fire, rapid innovation is better than slow and steady.
Pragmatism. We focus on ambitious but achievable solutions and believe that compromise and progress is more effective than purity and stasis.
Wall-less. Innovation happens more in places without hierarchies and where every person and every idea gets respect. We do that.
Honesty. We will acknowledge our efforts that work and those that do not, and we will not withhold innovation for political reasons.
Empathy. People who live in the landscape where conservation occurs need to be listened to and respected as residents. Their ideas and values have often gotten too little respect.
Prosperity. We are committed to environmental progress and to prosperity for people because the most enduring and exceptional outcomes require both.
