The Savory Institute is the home of Holistic Management, a decision making framework which results in ecologically regenerative, economically viable and socially sound management of the world’s grasslands.

The institute teaches people how to manage herds of domestic livestock to mimic those wild herds and in the process sequester thousands of tons of carbon into the soil (which can also increases its fertility and water storage).


In 2003 The Savory Institute’s founder, Allan Savory, won the Banksia award given to the person doing the most for the environment on a global scale, and in 2010 the Institute’s sister organization, the Africa Centre for Holistic Management, won the 2010 Buckminster Fuller Challenge Award for the organization working to solve the world’s most pressing problems. Often seen as a cause of climate change the Savoury Institute shows the world how to rethink its relationship with cattle – and feed more people in the process.
