Yorth’s hardware is its Integrated Utility Hub (IUH) and Integrated Utility System (IUS) designs, high-performance and holistic grid solutions that capture nutrient and material streams and optimises energy, water, waste, food, IT, and zero emissions vehicle infrastructure through a unified, closed-loop system at district-base scales, enhancing local resilience, resource security, economic stability, and standards of living.
The Yorth Insights software is a performance benchmarking, assessment, reporting, and management platform which assesses and guides businesses and cities to regenerative success. It is highly systems-based, assessing the synergistic relationship between environmental, social, economic, and cultural assets while providing objective scoring, financial modeling, ecological equity statements, and scenario planning capabilities.
Yorth has engaged with diverse markets and sectors around its turnkey restorative approach. To date, the company has designed regenerative districts for cities such as Minneapolis, San Francisco, and Washington DC, and is collaborating with multiple parties in Europe.
Yorth Group also engages with international foundations, federal government agencies, and financial institutions, who view its model as one that could fulfil requirements for circular economy bonds.
In addition to its direct market engagement, Yorth has led numerous capacity building and advocacy efforts, including mayoral training programmes, presentations at national planning conferences, TEDx events, universities, and for BBC affiliates.
Yorth Group’s ‘leapfrog’ approach enables communities to realise ambitious economic, social, and environmental development goals at far less cost and effort than incremental, green, or ‘less bad’ approaches.
