Sustainability by Design
We strongly believe that in the future, each business should be built with a positive impact to Profit, People & Planet – the so-called triple bottom-line.
Most societal problems we encounter are systemic problems ; and platforms are systemic business models; so it’s a match made in heaven : platforms are a natural ecosystem connector to bring together stakeholders from different sectors on the same topic and in the same virtual place.
We use the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) as our North Star.
We are guided by 3 principles:
1. Less talking, more action.
2. A business model which works.
3. No greenwashing but platforms with a tangible and measurable impact.
