What We Believe

Waste is an opportunity.

The best natural resource is the one that has already been extracted. Our work begins where others’ consumption ends, where energy would be otherwise lost to landfills or abandoned.

Innovation is imperative.

We can and will cultivate healthier, more sustainable cities by continuously and creatively disrupting old processes.

Together, people are strong.

Lasting, collaborative partnerships are key to creating environments where individuals, organizations and communities flourish.

Results demand action.

Action is the most effective stimulus for progress. We promote a hands-on approach to research, development and education.

Knowledge is power.

Access to information is essential for driving change. At Plant Chicago, we are committed to open-source distribution of knowledge.
