These are the 3 Foundations of our ESG Activator:
Fundamentals of Conscious Capitalism
The philosophy underlying the ultimate change of business leads us to what we call a more conscious capitalism.
At this foundation we will explore 5 fundamentals of conscious capitalism:
a) Evolutionary Purpose
b) Stakeholder Interdependence
c) Responsible Culture
d) Caring Leadership
e) Value Creation
B Lab has developed a free self assessment that is one way to measure the level of consciousness of your organization through 6 categories within the assessment:
i) Business Model
Sustainable Development Goals
United Nations has upgraded its 8 Millennial Development Goals to a more comprehensive collection of 17 different areas of measurement named Sustainable Development Goals.
We believe that this all starts with a SDG Zero - Consciousness, that can be offered by the two previous foundations to strengthen the business upgrade journey.
ABOUT THE ACTIVATOR
The Conscious Business Activator was developed by Thomas Eckschmidt (CC Brazil, ReFrame Consulting and HappyForce), Amy Powell (CC Portland and Business on Purpose) and Steve Havill (CC Bay Area and Conscia Ventures) under the concept of Open Source content aligned with the Creative Commons principles.
We invite the Conscious Business community to contribute and collaborate on the development and improvement of this tool and content. Please follow the rules of engagement (see button below) if you wish to coauthor a version of this material to address your specific community needs. Make sure any changes are properly shared and referenced.
We’d like to dedicate this CC Activator to the men and women who, in the beginning, gave their time, energy and wisdom to activate this movement. They held the space through their writing, speaking, organization, practices and passion so the rest of us could find our way to a more conscious capitalism. You are honored as the true Mothers and Fathers of this amazing, liberating movement.
Our deepest gratitude goes to:
