Create locally focused circular economies

Get your organisation to participate in the circular economy

Organisations have been key to our success in the past 200 years, but they are also degenerating the planet on a massive scale.

Organisations are the biggest ‘organisms’ on the planet. They have done so much for us, given us shelter, food and lifestyles which were unimaginable 100 years ago. BUT there has been a cost, and that cost has been the degeneration of the planet on a truly massive scale.

To have a regenerative circular economy means we need every organisation on the planet to participate and shift from degenerative practice to regenerative practice. This means that the value extracted from the natural world is also regenerated. This means we need to close the loop on the resources we do use. Recycle, reuse, remanufacture in a circular economy, while doing what we can to regenerate the natural capital that has been extracted from the planet over the past 200 years.

To do this, each organisation on the planet needs to determine exactly where it lives: not just the within industrial but in the natural ecosystem. Your business or organisation is in some way directly or indirectly contributing to the degradation of the planet. It is time we changed that or else we have no future on this star ship called Earth.

We have collected a few resources to help you get started on your journey.
