Do you have evidence of regenerative thinking being put into practice?

To me, the Regenerative Business revolution began back in the 1990s.  Where I see examples, I post them into the LinkedIn Regenerative Business discussion group.

The more we observe and applaud the emerging shift to truly win/win/win sustainable business models, the more we can accelerate their spread.  Whether it’s a suburban accountant installing a master power-off switch in a building refurbishment or a plastics manufacturer turning post-consumer waste into quality packaging, there’s a lot going on.

The regenerative business revolution takes environmental sustainability into the realm of strategy and innovation.  It transforms Corporate Social Responsibility from obligation to opportunity.

I list the examples I find in a LinkedIn discussion group.   What have you found?  What shifts are you observing towards business models where:

  • there are no products  – only valuable services
  • there are no wastes – only valuable by-products
  • products are designed for total safety
  • products are designed for re-manufacture as products-of-service
  • products are designed to copy nature’s smart thinking – renewable materials, renewable energy, room-temperature processes
  • resource usage is radically reduced
  • small, smart local solutions are replacing big infrastructure/big waste solutions

Let me know what you’ve observed.
