The Natural Step TNS

Linked with Karl-Henrik Robèrt – Sweden, and with … a way of talking about “systems thinking”.

The Natural Step is a nonprofit organization founded in Sweden in 1989 by Swedish scientist, Karl-Henrik Robèrt. The Natural Step has pioneered a “Backcasting from Principles” approach to effectively advance society towards sustainability, and developed through a consensus process a systematic principle definition of sustainability. Following publication of the Brundtland Report in 1987, Robèrt developed The Natural Step Framework, setting out the system conditions for the sustainability of planet Earth. Robèrt’s four system conditions are derived from the laws of thermodynamics.

As an international non-profit organisation it has been working to accelerate global sustainability, using the internationally endorsed and tested Natural Step framework, which is based on sound science, systems thinking and practical business decision-making, to help companies, non-profit organisations, individuals and communities to lead the transition to an ecologically, socially and economically sustainable future.
