Adaptation

Adaptation means innovating to compete and thrive in a changing global environment.

Housing, food, transportation, health and energy are all impacted by our changing climate and natural resource constraints. New technologies and business models that enable regenerative, distributed, secure, and abundant resources will enable sustainable growth for future generations.
At Valo, we are investing in solutions that:

  • Rethink

    Reimagining business models, tools, materials, product designs, and risk scenarios in pursuit of harmony between economic growth and climate resiliency.

  • Recycle

    Reengineering products and supply chains to create closed-loop systems, extend the value of existing products across multiple lifetimes, and upcycle waste into higher-performing outputs.

  • Regenerate

    Restoring biodiversity, preventing wildfires, and better monitoring weather through technology innovation that builds natural and financial capital.
