Sequerciani Green

Our project for environmental sustainability

The Preamble

Climate change is a reality that we have to deal with. “Slowing it down” though is no longer enough. Our planet is in jeopardy and we have to reverse the trend. Every one of us has to contribute.

The sooner we realize this, the better off we will be: taking care of the world around us and the natural resources that support us means taking care of ourselves.

Unfortunately, this cultural and philosophical approach has been of little interest to most individuals up until now, starting from the economic powers that be which insist on quick success: where every action around the world is measured by the word “profit.”

In today’s prevailing culture, with no communal projects in hand and only short term individual goals, the eventual exhaustion of resources is likely to lead to new wars, poverty and desolation.

A new economic and social philosophy would not be a revolution though: it would simply be a different approach, one that is based on the foundation of free market enterprise, the rights of businesses and the markets, as before, but with an awareness that the free market cannot stand above social rights or respect for the environment.

Business activity must be positioned with an awareness of these new scenarios, and entrepreneurial and managerial culture must become a vocation oriented towards producing economic and social wealth and the improvement of the world in which we all live.

A new business model

A circular or regenerative economy is the new frontier for business activity.

The old, linear economic model, “take-make-dispose” is based on accessibility to enormous amounts of resources and energy and is increasingly less suited to the reality we now live in and the one will have to act in in the future. By themselves, initiatives to support efficiency, which work to reduce resources and fossil fuels consumed per production unit, can delay the crisis of our current socio-economic model, but are not enough to solve the problems caused by the finite nature of our raw material stocks.

The transition from a linear economic model to a circular one is therefore necessary. By considering all phases of production – planning, production, consumption, and end of life disposal – a circular economic model allows for the recognition of every possible opportunity to limit material and energy expenditures, and to minimize waste and loss, with
particular attention given to the prevention of negative environmental impact and the creative of positive social and territorial value.

A relationship exists between human economic activity and the environment in which it takes place: damage to any part of the relationship damages every other part as well.

This is the definition of holistic wealth, i.e., wealth that is not only monetary, but that is defined and achieved by a shared well-being and prosperity, obtained by harmonizing all types of riches and capital, including social, cultural, residential, and experiential wealth.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

The Sequerciani Green project

The way to eco-sustainability


Ethics: an awareness of the limited exploitability of the material, energy and environmental
resources available on our planet.
Morality: an awareness of the undisputed value of sharing well-being and natural
resources among people and populations.
Sustainability: each activity, in order to be repeatable in the future in a theoretically infinite
number of times, must not lead to an univocal exploitation of non-renewable natural energy
resources, nor create or aggravate social disparities.

The Green choices that Sequerciani is working to develop are being implemented in three
- analysis and improvement of daily behaviour in terms of energy savings, reduction of nonrecyclable waste, recycling, composting, and sustainable electrical mobility;
- upgrading current energy production plants to renewable energy systems and using bio
or at the minimum “positive net environmental impact” methods
- experimentation and adoption of agricultural procedures and systems that regenerate soil
fertility, protect it from erosion and desertification, reduce water consumption and improve
the wholesomeness of food products (without synthetic chemicals). These are regenerative
agricultural techniques, such as biodynamics (the most well-known), syntropic agriculture,
and permaculture.

Biodynamic agriculture

In unison with nature

Biodynamic agriculture takes a global look at land development within our planetary
system, and more specifically at the future tasks of agriculture.

The goal is to sustain the evolution of our vital environmental forces, our flora and fauna and      support the human wish to reunite with the environment in a conscious manner.
For biodynamics, life born on the land is a holistic system: agriculture should be understood
as an interconnected, organic process where humans, animals, plants and the land thrive in
harmony. Agricultural work on the land is part of this process and, with the help of growers,
its individual potential can be fully realized. Although self-regulated, an organism always
needs the surrounding world around it and is never "finished".

The health and vitality of plants will be strengthened by infusing new vigor into the soil:
biodiversity will be incentivized with the results of the use of humus, proper tilling of the
earth, respect for the rhythms of the cosmos and its natural cycles, and the use of natural
fertilization methods such as cow horn manure and silica.

The organic rural district

An “area” agricultural project that foresees the involvement of nearby local organic companies

The project is aimed to:

- adopt and support any initiative directed at protecting the health and well-being of human
beings, animals, the environment and the conservation of biodiversity;

- promote, disseminate, and protect the organic and biodynamic production methods in the
agricultural, agri-food, animal husbandry, forestry, environmental, craft and energy fields as
a cultural project, and as a sustainable resource management model that is a necessary
choice for our food safety and sovereignty;

- enhancing and protecting characteristic productions and local traditions, also through the rediscovery and optimisation of pre-existing and abandoned varietal species;

- promote and optimise the concepts of conscious consumption, energy saving and eco-sustainability.

Sequerciani Arte Clima

An art, performance and science project

We are currently developing Sequerciani Arte Clima.
Sequerciani Arte Clima is a platform for artists and scientists whose work focuses on the urgent challenges of climate change in front of us and who seek creative solutions. To this end, Ruedi Gerber’s biodynamic vineyard in Tuscany, Sequerciani, is available to help
research, experimentation, interaction and performance with the living organism on its lands.
Sequerciani Arte Clima is open to all, from near and far.

Sequerciani Arte Clima is open to all, from near and far.
More information about the project will be published soon.
