The principles of Natural Capitalism provide the basis for a complete rethinking of business. They show how, contrary to conventional wisdom, far greater profits are achieved through protecting and enhancing nature, culture, and community than by harming them.
Most companies can dramatically increase the productivity of almost any resource they use. Four-fold increases in resource productivity are now the basis of economic development policy for the European Union and ten-fold increases or greater are possible with existing technologies. Increasing efficiency also encompasses the development of innovative business models that focus on meeting consumer needs in ways that require fewer manufactured products and reward companies for reducing their environmental footprint.
Biomimicry calls for a shift away from conventional “heat, beat and treat” manufacturing methods, which require enormous energy inputs and usually create toxic byproducts, to production based on models derived from nature.
The benign productive processes of living things can guide industrial innovation and teach us how to eliminate waste and toxics. All good capitalists reinvest in productive capital. Restoring the world’s depleted natural and human capital is a critical foundation of sustainable wealth creation. This principle encourages businesses to behave in ways that restore the capacity of both the earth and society to sustain life by investing in human and natural capital.
No net loss of natural or social capital. No current balance sheet accurately captures the real economic value of natural or social capital. But no human system that systematically degrades either one can long endure. To achieve genuine prosperity and an economy worth sustaining, it is essential to ensure that neither form of capital is diminished.
Take the vision of Natural Capitalism to scale worldwide, to make it a central operating principle of business and society around the globe. She implements the concepts of Natural Capitalism and sustainable development by fostering resource efficiency, biomimicry and restorative business practices within companies, and communities. This approach builds core business value for clients, strengthens local economies, creates a higher quality of life, and helps businesses and communities address the world’s growing environmental and social concerns.
She enables businesses to identify and capture the opportunities to increase profitability by behaving in more sustainable ways. It helps governments meet the needs of their communities in more cost effective and restorative ways.
