How do you fund a just transition?
Sustainable Business Models:
Encouraging businesses to adopt regenerative practices that minimize environmental impact and prioritize long-term sustainability. This can include implementing renewable energy sources, reducing waste and emissions, and adopting circular economy principles.
Promoting transparent and responsible supply chains that prioritize fair labor practices, human rights, and environmental stewardship. This includes ensuring fair wages, safe working conditions, and sustainable sourcing of raw materials.
Ethical Supply Chains:
Encouraging investments in companies and projects that have a positive ecological and social impact. Impact investors seek financial returns while also considering the ecological and social benefits generated by their investments, supporting initiatives related to renewable energy, clean technologies, and sustainable agriculture.
Promoting conscious consumerism and educating consumers about the environmental and social impacts of their purchasing choices. Encouraging consumers to support businesses and products that align with regenerative and ethical values can drive market demand and influence corporate behavior.
Socially Responsible Consumption:
Collaboration and Partnerships:
Fostering collaborations between public and private businesses, NGOs, and communities to develop and implement nature inspired solutions. By working together, we can leverage collective expertise, resources, and influence to drive systemic change and accelerate the transition to a regenerative Earth.
Issuing a digital pass feeding a pool of funds dedicated to supporting initiatives focused on environmental conservation, sustainability, and social equity. Earth Pass holders can track the accumulated funds, learn about the impact of their contributions, and choose specific causes or projects they wish to support.
Regenerative “Earth Pass”:
Resource and Stewardship Council:
The funds collected through the Earth Pass are directed to various projects and organizations committed to preserving Mother Earth and promoting a just transition. These may include initiatives related to reforestation, renewable energy development, generative sustainable agriculture, conservation of biodiversity, climate change adaptation, community resilience, and ecological education.
By transforming commerce in these ways, we can harness the power of the economy to fund and support a just transition towards a regenerative Earth, where environmental sustainability and social equity go hand in hand.
