Detailed Information:
The TNS framework helps individuals and organizations address key environmental issues from a systems perspective, reduce the use of natural resources, develop new technologies, and facilitate better communications among employees and members. It gives people a common language and guiding principles to help change existing practices and decrease their impact on the environment. The system conditions have been used as a shared mental model for problem solving, for the development of consensus documents (e.g. sustainable practices with regard to metals, energy, agriculture, and forestry), to structure institutional scientific work at universities, in course curricula for the teaching of students, and by business corporations, municipalities and other organizations as an instrument for strategic planning towards sustainability.
