International Living Future Institute (ILFI) programs push projects beyond standard market expectations for sustainability using regenerative design. With our advisory services, we aim to support project teams tackling the regenerative challenge; we want to help your team put ILFI’s programs into practice by shedding light on tangible pathways towards thriving social and ecological environments.
