Wildland Fire Management + Sustainability A critical concept vs. an empty marketing tool

Sustainability is a word that has been devalued by market forces and pretenders.  It’s a critically important concept but it’s  become little more than a marketing tool.

We believe in genuine sustainability. More than just the “greening” of materials and methods, we seek to explore the things that will make community viable within an environment that is at once natural and yet nearly universally affected by humans.

While genuine sustainability will always include some of the “green” technologies that are being heavily marketed at every level of commerce, it will necessarily include sustainable business practices, sustainable planning policies, and sustainable communities.
