e.g. How does nature create lightweight structures, reduce noise, conserve energy?
Biomimicry is the art and science of studying the natural world, translating nature’s time-tested, life-friendly strategies & principles and applying these to human design and organisational challenges.
Nature has billions of years of experience of what works and what doesn’t in a resource-constrained environment. Organisms are quite inventive engineers that harvest energy, filter water, ventilate, give colour without paint, regulate complex systems, build adaptive & resilient ecosystems etc. And they do this without negative side effects such as pollution and waste.
What is more, systems in nature enhance the environment instead of degrading it while compounding value from generation to generation. As nature’s R&D is 3.8 billion years old, consulting nature makes business sense.
