[GreenYes] More on ZERI Seminar New Mexico 2/4

Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives

ZERI offers an effective alternative to the current inadequate attempts to 
halt poverty and environmental degradation.  Since first steps were taken 
to make the environment and development a central issue for business and 
policy makers, ideas have emerged which attempt to reduce the negative 
impact of human activity on Earth.  Since the 1972 UNCED Stockholm 
conference, we have made only modest efforts towards "sustainable 
development", "eco-efficiency", "cleaner production", "industrial 
metabolism", and "natural capitalism".

While these efforts certainly deserve merit and attention, none have been 
able to reverse the dramatic downward environmental trend we have witnessed 
since industrialization became the model for development.  And still we are 
incapable of responding to about one billion people's needs for food, 
water, health care, housing and jobs.

ZERI is a non-profit organization established under Swiss law in 1994 in 
response to the alarming pressure humanity is putting on the 
environment.  A network of scientists, business people, government 
officials and educators, work in the tradition of systems-thinking inspired 
by nature which uses all outputs as input for some other process.  By 
re-using "waste", we create more products, more jobs, a cleaner environment 
and stronger social system.
