What's in a name?
Symbi is the root of 'symbiosis' ("a mutually beneficial relationship between different groups") and Audit is the root of 'auditus' ("a systematic examination"). Our raison d'etre is to:
Accelerate the low carbon economy transition by using systematic examination of industrial systems to identify solutions that create mutually beneficial relationships between natural and human worlds.
- Rigour – An open-systems thermodynamic approach, methodical observation, and unbiased analysis yield objective results. We cherish facts.
- Integrity – Honesty and uprightness is essential to rigorous execution, fact finding, genuine action, and authentic stewardship. We seek truth.
- Diversity – If it makes sense for ecosystems and economies; then it makes sense for organizations. We do not argue with 4 billion years of evolution.
- Simplicity – Anyone can make things bigger and more complicated. We develop effective solutions that go the other way.
