This article is part 5 of 9 in the series Regenerative Leadership & Regenerative Business

Many of the ingredients we need for a Regenerative Renaissance—made up of regenerative businesses and brands and led by regenerative leaders—already exist. 

Regenerative brands and business models (will) bake together frameworks, technologies, and tools like:

  • Recalibration of economic and financial accounting to encourage and measure human well-being, happiness, learning, meaning, and joy, as well as productivity/profit/GDP
  • Optimizing and consciously trading off at least 6, probably 8 or 9, different forms of capital, including social, relational, intellectual, natural, and material capitals
  • A recalibration of globalization, with the focus shifting to the mobility of ideas and relationships (consciousness) as opposed to simply (cheaper) labor and liquid capital (matter)
  • Slow, patient, and humble capital that is less interested in material scale, exponential returns, and rapid exits (i.e., ‘unicorns’); and far more interested in sustained and sustainable positive impact (e.g., ‘zebras’)
  • Authentic business purpose at the core of all organizations (that is realized with concrete changes in business practices and investment in employee and user well-being)
