OHIAS's work is about educating, assisting and empowering all to live and work more harmoniously with nature and one another especially in our communities to avoid further and certain ruin of our planet’s finite life-sustaining capacity. A principal objective of our mission is to end waste
as we know it today.
Putting our so called waste to work ...
Putting people to work ...
Putting our community to work ....
Creating sustainable community benefit
for all people and planet ...
It's the RESPONSIBLE thing to do!
VALUE / TRUE VALUE ACCOUNTING
Value (defined) — the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.
A few examples of what we may value today:
Health, life, family, friends, peace, planet and community.
— Henry David Thoreau
"There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it"
TRUE VALUE ACCOUNTING
In a finite world everything is important and nothing should be wasted be it a natural resource or human potential and everything should be assessed at the beginning of every new cycle along its life-cycle course according to its True Value and highest potential use and benefit.
This True Value Accounting paradigm seeks to bring greater appreciation and subsequently new and higher sustainable value to local natural (capital) resources such as wood, stone, glass and metal from our built environment and wood from our urban forests to create life-sustaining community beneficial work and opportunity.
True value inputs identified here have been long missing from value proposition and need to be included if we choose to make our communities more sustainable, equitable and responsible for all people, businesses, institutions, community benefit organizations and government.
Note: This value proposition has no intended relationship to any building rating system or product certification system.
We know we pay for products from nature, such as water, food and timber, but there are many other goods and services from nature that we take for granted. Healthy ecosystems provide vast economic value, and investing in this natural capital provides a high rate of return. For example, a growing number of government policy-makers are starting to measure the economic value of “ecosystem services.” Such ecosystem service valuation can demonstrate the return on past or proposed investments in natural capital and objectively quantify trade-offs in development decisions.
