The mainstream environmental movement in the U.S. is sometimes viewed in a way whereby in order for someone to do the “right thing,” one must be regulated or somehow controlled. There are negative consequences to assuming that stakeholders will not actively engage in responsible use of our resources – if you wish for something, it may happen. There is another, healthier option to consider as it relates to encouraging more effective use of scarce resources. Aldo Leopold explains the solution in his publication The Sand County Almanac (1949). Leopold described a land ethic by which landowners and community stakeholders were both responsible for good stewardship. In his words, "When land does well for its owner, and the owner does well by his land; when both end up better by reason of their partnership, we have conservation. When one or the other grows poorer we do not." Land and water are valuable private property rights, but must be enjoyed with conservation and good stewardship in mind. The relationship Leopold writes about is called ‘Cooperative Conservation.’ Instead of coercion, landowners, community stakeholders, government agencies and academia come together to promote stewardship, partnerships and business ventures which combine public and private lands and their right holders.
Joint Venture Partnerships
Regenesis Management Group actively supports research and development partnerships with several groups. Our partnerships include relationships with top-tier universities, in addition to state and federal research cooperatives. Regenesis Management Group also retains partnerships with private-sector scientists and engineers in the region that are considered specialists in their respective fields. Our partners are focused upon identifying a higher and better use for natural resources, implementing innovative techniques to the public and acquiring market acceptance of these new systems.
Innovation is Essential
Service to all potential stakeholders can be a challenging task when dealing with such a diverse set of motivations. Providing solutions to the daily resource concerns of farmers, ranchers, municipalities, government, private sector and other related parties is our goal and the firm attempts to focus on what brings us all together, versus what separates us. A plan that focuses on implementing innovative techniques for the public that actually work in daily practice is of paramount value.
