Natures's Treasures Transformed for You
WALA has been developing natural products since as far back as 1935. In the earliest days of its history, the company was a pioneering force in a society that had all but lost touch with natural products. Today, more than 70 years later, it is increasingly evident that the natural approach may be the only one that can lead us to the future.
For WALA, this was always the natural choice.
Our Sponsor Accenture supports us with great input on several sesseions during the oikos Winter School. Thank you very much for the great cooperation!
Sustainable development requires an integrated approach to policy and science because many of the issues it raises cannot be addressed within a single department or using the tools of individual scientific disciplines. This is where the "Wuppertal Institute"'s research programme begins - by taking an interdisciplinary approach and working towards systems understanding. Applied sustainability research is the Wuppertal Institute's stated mission. The Institute was founded in 1991 under the direction of Professor Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker.
The UNEP/Wuppertal Institute Collaborating Centre on sustainable Consumption and Production / CSCP provides scientific support to activities undertaken by UNEP and other organisations in the field of SCP. This support includes the development, testing, implementation and monitoring of concrete projects, especially in developing countries, which enables these countries to leapfrog to sustainable consumption and production patterns using life cycle thinking and regional perspectives as guiding principles.
