About us

NCS helps companies, communities and countries implement the principles presented in the acclaimed book Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution, co-authored by NCS’s leader, Hunter Lovins. These principles underpin a whole-system sustainability framework. Since the book’s publication in 1999, Hunter and her colleagues have used these principles to enable citizens to implement profitable sustainability. Their Integrated Bottom Line approach cuts costs, reduces risk, attracts and retains the best talent, engages workers, differentiates brands, drives profitability, and generates market leadership.

We are a proud member of 1% for the Planet!

Principles for Natural Capitalism

This slows resource depletion, lessens pollution, and increases employment in meaningful jobs. It lowers costs for business and society, halts the degradation of the biosphere, makes it more profitable to employ people, and preserves vital living systems and social cohesion.
This approach enables a wide array of products to be produced using sunlight with processes that emulate nature’s genius. It emphasizes Walter Stahel’s concept of the circular economy and cradle to cradle manufacturing, in which waste is eliminated, materials are reused,  and products are remanufactured.
Such approaches implement ecological economics to create sustainable prosperity. It improves human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risk an ecological scarcities. It supports shared well-being on a healthy planet, delivering greater wealth, intact communities and abundant ecosystem services and natural resources.
