For sustainability to really mean something, sustainability context is everything. How can companies start to place their activities within the big picture?
Multiple capitals seek to expand the notion of value beyond money, cost and price. How useful might they be?
Efficiency of use is a key aspect of sustainable energy, but quality may be more fundamental, how might we define it?
The discount rate makes a lot of sense but it also acts to restrict adequate investment in sustainable change. How might we compound future value?
Out with the old? The “new” seldom really is new, built as it so often is upon the ramshackle foundations of the old – not upon fresh footings of its own.
Allowing the values we hold to be expressed through action should not be a matter of guilt. Sustainability will come when we turn the tide.
Capitalism has no stated end-goal, no clear outcome or purpose, yet it dominates our planet. We need a little more from our operating system.
The future evolution of business; Rejuvenative Enterprises will thrive upon the changes our planet faces, for the good of all.
Entropic Valuation is a “solar unit in – utilisable energy unit out” approach. It can compare how efficiently sunlight transforms to usable energy.
The energetics of life show us the way to a seismic change in the capacity and sustainability of our species.
Using money to put things on a level playing field makes sense, but only if the things we are comparing are actually comparable – natural capital is not.
Entropy applies without exception to all activities and processes. Is it the meta metric to measure and drive a circular economy?
The limits to growth are framed by thermodynamics, not sentiment and custom. We must evolve our systems of value to work within and alongside this reality.
We need to drive a flowering of rejuvenative technology – sustainable in its impact and biotic in its nature – increasing the sum total of life on Earth.
From shallow value to real value – markets need to be capable of valuing a common future as more valuable than a private present.
What hope for sustainability when short term, shallow value and sensation is prioritised over the long term productive capacity of the planet and humanity?
Like pricing the Earth, getting the right price for your Mother might be harder than you think
Scarcity may be a simple and effective way of generating price but it is fatally flawed as an approach to delivering a sustainable future…
This post presents a gentle meander around some of the issues and ideas generated by our modest proposal to explore an Initial Public Offering (IPO) for the Earth, an EPO.
Delivering sustainable capitalism – how the price mechanism must evolve.
