Planet Positive

We have been very successful in our way of doing business to date. But we have focused too much on growth and resource extraction, while not paying enough attention to the consequences this has on our planet. In the industrialized countries we are currently using up more than twice as many resources as our planet can regenerate.

A Planet Positive way of doing business will turn this around: It means giving back to the planet more than what we take from it. It encompasses all the resources we use (Air, Water, Fossils, Soils, Animals, Plants, Wood, Minerals, everything). 

In our work, we relate to the established targets and frameworks for sustainable business, like → the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), → the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Guidelines, → the Planetary Boundaries Concept, → the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi),→ the Carbon Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB), → the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), → the Race to Zero Campaign, and many others.

A Planet Positive way of making business can be approached in five ways:

Reducing what we take (Increasing Efficiency and Sharing)

Returning what we took back to nature (Using Organic Materials and Renewable Energy)

Retrieving what we took and using it again (Reusing and Recycling)

Giving back to the planet (Regenerating) more than what we took.

For an interim period, we can also minimize our own planet footprint by regenerating or reducing what somebody else is taking (Offsetting).
