Our Experience, Achievements & Knowledge In Sustainability

We’ve been in the ‘sustainability field’ now for years.

In that time, we have been mentioned by, referenced by, or cited by a range of recognised organisations or institutions, such as submissions to governments, a range of universities and colleges, research journals, and more.

At this point of time, we’ve also consumed information published in thousands of different reports and sources relating to the topic of sustainability, and also sustainability related topics. Many of these reports and sources are listed in our content, along with others that are not.

 

What We Look To Do With Our Content

We look to better understand different issues, consider improvement, or consider how they interact and relate with each other.

We also look at potential tradeoffs to be made between different decisions we make across society.

The information we provide is not definitive, but rather a collection and refinement of other information, as well as our own developed knowledge, to provide an informed viewpoint to specific issues.

 

What The Name ‘Better Meets Reality’ Means

The term ‘Better Meets Reality’ is a representation that there are usually challenges and limitations, tradeoffs, and also competing interests and priorities that come with decisions on almost any issue across society.

These different decisions can affect a range of parties (like individuals, groups, wider society, the environment, and so on) in different ways.

We acknowledge that ‘perfect’ solutions or ‘fully complete’ solutions to some issues & problems don’t exist, so instead of looking for a perfect solution, a solution that considers all pros and cons and makes the best of the reality of the problem is more practical.

We try to look at what is happening to create a problem, and what the different outcomes might be when different decisions are made to approach or address that problem.

For this reason, any ‘solutions’ mentioned on the site might be considered exploratory rather than definitive.

We try to update information and data as it becomes available in the future.

This may mean that previous interpretations or best practices in approaching a certain problem can eventually be superseded, so, we try to stay somewhat detached from previous positions or assumptions.
