Positive Impacts

and measureable benefits

We deliver positive impacts on the social, economic and environmental levels but it's on the family level where we create intriguing and unexpected benefits that will ensure lasting results. NextGenUrban believes that true sustainability boils down to family economics and personal control of life's critical resources of water energy food and fuel. Without sustainable families there is no sustainable world, plain and simple. Without family economics AND personal control over resources baked-into the solution, there is no basis for an enduring society and no chance of living in equilibrium with nature over the long haul. That's why we ensure the exact method for families to do two things: 1. Control the source of their water energy food and fuel. 2. Retain and grow their family wealth over multiple generations. The control is achieved through private ownership of all the sustainable infrastructure that's responsible for delivering their water energy food and fuel. The family retains their wealth over time via savings on the cost of water energy food and fuel, and their wealth grows through the appreciation of their equity interest in the infrastructure assets. NextGenUrban believes that securing a family's sustainable resources AND simultaneously securing a family wealth is the only way to achieve both the life of abundance we all desire AND the long-term balance with nature required for survival.    Below is a fun little video about the positive impacts of living in a NextGenUrban neighborhood.

Environmental Benefits

Each year NextGenUrban eliminates the following impacts for each resident:

• All 6 metric tonnes of CO2 and greenhouse gasses (the global average per person per year)
• All 32,295 gallons of raw sewage from entering the environment. (average sewage produced per person per year)
• All 1,289 cubic meters of natural gas used (average person's annual consumption)
• We keep all 1,268 pounds of trash out of the landfills (average person's trash per year)
• We save all 36,786 gallons of fresh water usage (average person's annual tap water consumption .
• And we convert 100% of the food waste produced at our farm level, retail, transportation, and at the household level.

In other words, we will eliminate all the upstream impacts from our customer's water energy food and fuel consumption, and we eliminate all downstream impacts from their waste, sewage and trash.   

social benefits

Each resident of a NextGenUrban neighborhood will enjoy the financial benefits derived from an equity interest in the neighborhood's infrastructure assets in the exact same manner they enjoy the benefits of home ownership.

Each resident will also enjoy;

  •  15% savings on electricity (vrs to local rate)
  • 20% savings on cooking fuel (vrs to local rate)
  • 35% or more on fresh organic produce (vrs local rate)
  • 40% savings on drinking water (vrs local rate)
  • Equity interest in the neighborhood's sustainable systems


physical benefits

of our sustainable infrastructure platform

Our modular and scalable platform for sustainable urban growth delivers the following physical benefits. 

  • Low capital cost for new infrastructure
  • Reduced footprint of infrastructure
  • Nodes of independent self-contained populations
  • Resilient places of refuge after natural or man made disasters
  • Zero burden on existing municipal infrastructure

Personal Benefits

of living a sustainable Lifestyle

Less obvious than the direct benefits listed above, is the way our sustainable neighborhoods benefit the family on a very personal level.

NextGenUrban helps families build their wealth over time. We believe that without this, there is no basis for a sustainable life. So, we ensure the path for each resident to gain equity ownership in the neighborhood utilities. This locks-in savings and helps families retain their wealth and enables families to grow that wealth through the appreciation of asset values.  

We believe that combining a path to family wealth AND a path to family control over critical resources is the key to true long term sustainability. Our model combines the two, and thus, satisfies the human desire for a life of abundance while creating the needed equilibrium with nature. 

On a very practical level, we save residents time and money, keep them healthy, protect their environment, create local jobs and drive other social benefits while helping to solve some of the world's most urgent problems. 

But that is really just be beginning. 

There are some profound psychological benefits that flow to the individual consumer as they become liberated from humankind's oldest task of securing a daily supply of life's most critical resources. 

When a family is no longer dependent upon the global supply chain and they gain equity in the systems that produce and deliver their resources, they achieve a high degree of control over life's basic necessities. Over time this grows into a deep sense of security and opens up new opportunities. In turn, this fosters a strong belief in a brighter future. 

NextGenUrban believes these are the most powerful impacts of all because liberating the individual carries the power of change that the world so badly needs at this time. This is what we refer to as "The Lifestyle Beyond Sustainability". A lifestyle characterized by an abundance of health & wellness and a freedom from those age-old routine tasks of securing life's most critical resources of water energy food and fuel. We believe this is the path to unlocking the exponential power of our full human potential.
