We work three tracks.

  • Circular action. We actualize circular goals, form circular (facility) coalitions and make buildings sustainable.
  • To measure = to know. We measure the effects. We accomplish this through the PHI Impact Calculator.
  • Inspire. We inspire and trigger employees in organisations to act through gamified learning.
