Develop The Sustainable Future
That We Need and Deserve
My name is Jesse Henry
Every day I’m embedding sustainable solutions into the agriculture, chemicals, and manufacturing industries. To me, sustainable solutions are the single most important factor in the long-term survival of our species. My focus is:
- Reducing The Carbon Footprint of Raw Materials and End Products
- Replicating Sustainable Business Practices Across The World
Creating Sustainable Thoughts and Things
The law of attraction says that thoughts become things. So a sustainable material world starts with a sustainable immaterial world.
Part of my purpose on this planet is to embed sustainability into the physical, digital, & metaphysical worlds. The question is, what is truly sustainable?
From Green Energy Into Green Materials
Society needs similar incentive structures so that green materials can become the backbone of manufacturing.
The race to lowest cost production means we have sacrificed carbon emissions for profit. If we want to transition toward a more sustainable future, we need to start creating an environment where sustainable solutions are possible. The materials industry is $5.5T+. It's time to make it green.
Thinking Through The Lens of Sustainability
The leaders of tomorrow will make decisions by putting sustainability at the forefront of the conversation.
While building a business focused on sustainable materials, I started to look at the non-physical aspects of sustainability. How I communicate, listen, think, act, react, relate, consume, and speak was all of a sudden looked at through the lens of sustainability.
Throughout The Supply Chain
My team partners with traditional row crop farmers (corn, wheat, soy, etc) to successfully add industrial hemp into their crop rotation. Our crops help farmers reduce chemical usage and nitrate runoff while increasing soil carbon and water retention.
Heartland partners with material suppliers, chemical companies, and plastic compounders to reduce the cost, weight, and carbon footprint of plastic, rubber, paper, concrete, cement, asphalt, and other raw materials.
Heartland is a sustainability partner for brands and their suppliers on their journey to reduce their carbon footprint. Our team helps create stakeholder alignment so companies can quickly develop and test products that leverage sustainable materials.
