Social responsibility and sustainable undertakings are more than just the improvement of one’s production and sales process. In fact it could be better expressed as 'a break with business as usual'.
MatureDevelopment believes that in order to work in a sustainable manner one must be conscious of the global economy.
This small Dutch enterprise which actively works with the development of innovative and sustainable ideas, is also involved with the implementing and further development of these innovations.
The aim of these innovations is to contribute to the future so that even those who, until now, have not had the opportunity to profit from technology will be able to lead a sustainable lifestyle.
We are pleaced to welcome Professor Simon Davies to our team. He has been instrumental in developing new feed technologies for the sustainable production of farmed fish and is committed to education at all levels from vocational training to university degree levels and beyond. He is a strong believer in open access life-long learning and the alleviation of poverty globally through advancement in new technologies and especially improved food production practices.
New energy realities have ruptured society and future competitiveness of countries and organisations. Reliable access to energy sources will be a major advantage in the future. Countries and organisations in transition towards sustainable energy will occupy the high ground in tomorrow’s world. Many sources of sustainable energy can help to reach this position. Solar, wind, water, geo-thermal and biofuels are competing for interest. MatureDevelopment advocates synergistic sources, yet making the choice for biofuels as a focal point for core competences.
MatureDevelopment focuses on the creation, diffusion, use, coordination and support of sustainable energy technology. This focus is linked to Pure Plant Oil (PPO) production and application. We made the choice to value co-creation with other competent organisations in state-of-the-art technology. Where our expelling and filtration competences are valued in the first stage of the chain.
Limitations in water quality and quantity, lack of land, cost of land, limitations on water, zero larvae and parasites discharges, environmental impacts and diseases, reducing total costs of ownership, increasing revenues within business constraints; all are driving the aquaculture industry towards more intensive practices, towards innovation.
This forces breeding hatcheries and producers to adopt environmentally and cost-effective friendlier technologies. MatureDevelopment BV, co-developed for the aquaculture industries a self-cleaning filter.
Emphasis is placed on cost competitiveness, low head operations, biosecurity, intensification of ponds and nursery systems. The filter system is reducing total costs of ownership while improving performance compared to conventional filter systems.
Innovations are necessary to fulfill changing societal needs, support sustainable development and create societal resilience. The utilisation of such potential depends in large extent on the governance and management of innovations on both organisation- and system level. However, increased specialisation, organisational interdependency and attention for social and environmental values have increased complexity within the systems in which organisations operate.
Due to increased system complexity, traditional governance and management approaches are characterised by reduced predictability and effectiveness. In order to improve on these traditional attempts, the system of innovation approach (SI) has been gaining much interest in scientific and managerial circles over the past decades in describing innovation dynamics of complex systems. Innovation systems are networks of organisations that are directly or indirectly involved in the creation, diffusion, use, coordination and support of scientific and technological knowledge.
Information is not only important to fulfill today's tasks and business processes, information is every day converted into knowledge which is the input information of tomorrow. Access to this knowledge is critical to develop viable and sustainable businesses. With the support of today's technology the opportunity is created to capture and have access to this knowledge on any time and in any form it is required.
MatureDevelopment focus on the development of interaction between human and technology to improve efficiency and effectivity of information. This with the result of reducing complexity when a project has to be realized and governance is at stake. We made the choice to value co-creation with other competent organisations where our practical and result oriented approach are valued.
