DELIVERY OF ECOSOCIETAL SOLUTIONS

As specialists in environmental solutions concepts, design, remediation, rehabilitation and management for the mining, processing, natural environments, intensive agriculture industries, and communities, we deliver world-first cost effective processes and systems for a range of globally oppressive environmental risks inclusive of salinity, acidity and acid mine drainage,  alkalinity  and associated metaliferrous drainage, Bauxite processing ‘Red Mud’ and effluents, Phosphogypsum and effluents, metals, metalloids, sulphides and other pollutant contaminated water and soils, depleted lands, dust and hazardous airborne particulates. Our processes utilise biological, biogenic and biosphere benign methods and materials where ever possible, providing minimum change for maximum benefit solutions and outcomes.  We understand that some of the greatest environmental risks are land and water degradation through mining, industry and agriculture, further exacerbated by inability and inaction of governments and corporations. This is paralleled by the business risks to the future of mining and industry through the evolution of environmental guidelines forced upon governments and the private sector by a contemporary society. Couple this with salinity driven food security issues exacerbated by climate, pollution and market control and we have a downward spiraling continuum. The rapidly expanding greater population understanding of and commitment to actioning the realisation that many governments deliver industry supporting lamentable laws and governance which disregard respect, rights and recognition of the land, environment and affected parties, continuing to place accountability for ecosocietal degradation at the feet of the mining, industrial and agricultural entities. Conversely, mining, industrial and agricultural entities, expertly return the accountability firmly to the feet of the governments that deliver lamentable laws and governance, thereby maintaining the adamantine cycle. Relying upon Hope; (some-one else, some-where else, some-other time), seldom if ever, delivers  ever-necessary solutions. The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute, (TESSI) over 30-years', developed processes that facilitate delivery of in-house, industry proven, robust, effective and tuneable systems solutions applicable to most climatic and operational conditions. The unique systems have been successfully applied as environmental and societal remediation solutions in Australia, New Zealand, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Pacific/Oceania, USA, Latin America, Africa, Asia, India and the Middle East. In 2012, TESSI played a major role in drafting the new Mongolian water law; a new approach to mining access to sovereign assets and ecosocietal advancement. Wayne Sampey and TESSI authored and delivered the internationally acclaimed Australian Indigenous Economic Prosperity Initiative (2012), a methodology that delivers ecosocietal solutions to advance commercial projects placing emphasis upon Indigenous and diversified communities  achieving shared success community industry partnerships.

The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute (TESSI) shared success community-industrial partnership review system (CIR), incorporates the community ecosocietal impact assessment, and the industry ecosocietal impact assessment. The assemblies independently conduct their own ecosocietal impact assessments, following which they engage in a cooperative, third party mediated gap analysis. Should the data-meld deliver an agreed empirically justified risk assessed approach, a community-industry ecosocietal partnership assessment with the intent for a project that demonstrates as ecosocietally beneficial to all stakeholders can be progressed. The community-industry ecosocietal impact assessment is designed to be separately conducted by community and industry. This allows community and bonafide stakeholders to achieve the community centric baseline studies into proposed and existing projects in parallel to those being conducted by industry, and by government. The appropriate tripartite management by community, industry and government creates significant advancements in how economic, ecological, environmental, and societal paradigms are approached and shared in accountability and success. Ecosocietal prosperity is the economic, ecological, environmental, and societally sustainable prosperity model with the ability to effectively unite all stakeholders in a linear project intergenerational economic, ecological, environmental, community and resources design, development, and management solutions approach. The system, structured upon a 100 Element Risk Score System, (totaling 1100 Risk Points), conducting reviews across multiple levels from the grass roots concept stakeholders through governance levels to final decision makers, in practical over technical application understanding, learning and involvement essential to progress intergenerational prosperity through a justly structured shared success stakeholder coalition. A risk index, is developed and used to monitor and manage risk identification appetite, exposure, and controls across the immediate and whole of environments and communities over time just as indices are used for share markets and commodities. This risk index will provide a dynamic view of the state of ecosocietal sustainability and actual point-in-time, and accruing risk; a snapshot of risk, developing the market mechanisms to promote responsible industry and community aspirations and endeavours, which is equally important as punitive actions for poor ecosocietal management.

The key is the use of sustainable, transparent locally applicable certified systems that create processes that begin at concept and continue economic, ecological, environmental, and community/industry life cycle through the entirety of the project. local, regional and national industry, and community  strategies for commercial integrity and legitimacy. The methodology, also delivered to the governments of multiple countries, the World Bank, and the United Nations; (who seem to have adopted most of TESSI’ generated recommendations for the UN/OECD 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, inducing the TESSI phrase People, Planet and Prosperity through Partnerships to which they have added Peace which was already realistically covered in both Prosperity) (TESSI 2000). 

Wayne Sampey and Daemon de Chaeney, with TESSI has since developed the Ecomining® system, a 1000 risk point  multiple level assessments review and management process in practical over technical understanding, learning and involvement essential to progress intergenerational prosperity through a justly structured shared success community, industry, government coalitions. The process provides comprehensive progressive mining and industrial assessment, auditing, environmental and societal security bonding, and project and operations management governance. In addition TESSI' most recent development is the multifaceted environmental and societal Impact assessment process (EIA and EIS), the community industrial partnerships assessment and review program. A system to permit community and others to independently transparently completely assess and contribute to decisions affecting environment and society in a sciences supported detailed empirical manner.

In 2016, at the request of the Papua New Guinea Government, TESSI designed and delivered the world's only viable solution to the mining derived major environmental destruction of the Fly River System and in 2017 TESSI demonstrated that the SABR BioDeSalination (SABRBODS) process could treat hyper saline agricultural soils and desalinate associated waters. The process was then advanced to seawater desalination.  Sustainability has become a word so widely used that most immediately only apply it to the ecological and environmental aspects of society as in 'minimal harm to the environment'. Sustainable should however conjure thoughts of maintainable and lasting, or simply that it will endure and stably exist for an extended period.

Ecosocietal Prosperity

Positive economic, ecological, environmental, intergenerational societal advancement encompassing  Practice, Arts, Language, Lore and Law.

Societal mutualism is paramount in developing and maintaining intergenerationally endorsed advancements in industry, government and community while reducing unnecessary erosion of ecology, economics and culture. The long-term objective is to improve the prosperity and cultural stability of the world’s growing population in a sustainable framework of improving equilibrium in the Earth's biosphere, discussed as the single ecosystem comprising the Earth and all living organisms.    

Ecosocietal Practice          

The methods and function of performing the task, (how and why it is done),    

Arts:

The study and practice of culture.    

Language:

The interpretation, communication and continuations of culture and society.    

Lore:

The vital core of a culture’s rules, ethics and morals that ensures protection and preservation.     

Law:

The design and application of ‘just’ rules, for cohesive societal regulation and management.     

Ecosocietally Prosperous activities are fully synonymous with Sustainability. However, not all claimed Sustainability may necessarily be synonymous with Ecosocietal Prosperity.                                             

Advancing intergenerational prosperity, while  preserving economic,ecological, environmental, cultural and commercial values

The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute with their partner Institutes deliver solutions that appreciate ecological, environmental, community, industry and government shared success advancement and ecosocietal prosperity through multi-dimensional applied sciences based societally supporting systems. The focus is forward thinking 'greed free agreement' 'shared success partnerships' delivering intergenerationally advantageous solutions. 

Traditional cultures are increasingly exposed to pressures through economics,. Globalisation and absorption of modern western mechanisms, particularly prevalent in adolescents, voraciously soaks up the freely available popular media of the developed nations. This most often encourages aspiration to perceived seldom reached opportunities and entitlement to wealth, leisure and status that accompanies the interpretation of ‘western’ or going ‘global’.

The expansion of the inter-web to include mobile phones and low-cost global internet access are accelerating this process. The unfortunate conundrum is that in many cases, the endemic power of culture and the sustainable baseline abundance of communities is not realised. The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute, with their partner institutes, focuses upon the principal need to impart knowledge-based solutions developed along the methodology of practice, arts, language, lore and law; the combination of traditional, cultural and contemporary applied sciences supported learning to create and advance opportunities for the realisation of local, regional, national and global potentials. The goal must be intergenerational prosperity advancement that symbiotically bolsters all cultures and traditions with which we interact, in an enduring framework. Trading in culture and the eroding of traditional societal values in exchange for lands, lifestyles, IP, tech., and trade benefits needs to advance from simply beneficial ‘consideration’ to actual shared success, embodying greed free agreements. TESSI progressively seeks opportunities to mediate/facilitate positive advancement between westernisation, traditional cultures and emerging globalisation in a manner that supports all people in development of a greater appreciation for, and valuing of, culture and heritage within wider societally endorsed methodologies for management of change. This drives the preservation of all elements of cultural integrity, opening judiciously selected opportunities and advantages for appropriate and timely ecosocietal advancement.
