We teach how to read the electricity meter, audit all the power-consuming appliances that contribute to the cost, share information on more efficient alternatives in the market, and then prepare an action plan to become energy efficient to reduce business costs and increase profitability and competitiveness. We do this with water, waste, raw material handling, transport/mobility, etc.

Design thinking is an iterative process to understand users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and create innovative solutions we can prototype and test. 

Every product has a target audience and is designed to solve its users’ problems in some way. To assess whether a product solves its users' problems, designers create an almost-working model or mock-up of the product, called a prototype, and test it with prospective users and stakeholders.

To ensure that the planet, people, purpose, profit are all considered while moving ahead.
