Context-Based Biodiversity Metric Pilot Project

Context-Based Biodiversity Metric Pilot Project

r3.0 is collaborating with the Center for Sustainable Organizations (CSO) and Manomet to manage pilot testing of the world’s first context-based biodiversity metric that these two Advocation Partners co-developed, the Biodiversity Performance Index (BPI). This metric aggregates 10 context-based indicators, several of which already exist, and most of which utilize impact data that is typically already tracked by companies.

r3.0 embarks on further strengthening its knowledge creation and know-how implementation program through ‚+Maverick Thinking‘ in the form of White Papers, Opinion Papers and Case Studies, and has created a new webpage to capture these lines of thinking. Each of these groups of papers have specific functions in the design of future Blueprints, r3.0’s core products. These White Papers, Opinion Papers and Case Studies will also remain global public goods, freely available to everybody on this planet for inspiration, further instigation and creation of move positive maverick thinking.

Multicapitalism Whitepaper Released

Multicapitalism Whitepaper Released

“It’s been a long time coming,” writes Bill in the Author’s Foreword (quoting David Crosby) about this, our first White Paper: From Monocapitalism to Multicapitalism: 21st Century System Value Creation. More than three years, to be precise. But we think it’s worth the wait — and hope you agree! The project started as a partnership with the International Integrated Reporting Council; when we delivered the final draft, they considered it an “important and provocative paper.”

So provocative, in fact, that IIRC recognized they would need to request significant changes to be able to publish it under their name, and they showed respect by refraining from asking us to dilute the message to satisfy their more conservative base, and instead invited us to publish it solo.

We believe this is an integral part of the story of this paper: Multicapitalism, the concept conceived by our Advocation Partner Mark McElroy (and his partner Martin Thomas)  predicated on the fact that the multiple capitals all have carrying capacities, is an inherently provocative notion that challenges the core underpinnings of status quo Monocapitalism, with its commitment to shareholder primacy, perpetual growth, and privatization of value.

We believe that if political expedience requires us to disregard the carrying capacities of the capitals, then we must reject this “political world” (to quote Bob Dylan, as the White Paper does), and instead embrace the “material world” (more like George Harrison’s than Madonna’s) that reconciles thermodynamic realities with ethical imperatives — as this Multicapitalism White Paper does. Enjoy!

UNRISD

UNRISD

This month, the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) and r3.0 announced a pilot testing of Sustainable Development Performance Indicators which UNRISD developed with support from r3.0 (Redesign for Resilience & Regeneration). The initiative invites enterprises to pilot a comprehensive set of Sustainable Development Performance Indicators that are unified by common reference to real-world thresholds that demarcate sustainability — and the transformations from business-as-usual necessary to respect the limits and demands for vital capital resources.

The Thresholds of Transformation project invites both For-Profit Enterprises (FPEs) and Social & Solidarity Economy Organizations & Enterprises (SSEOEs) to pilot this set of indicators, which measure not only incremental performance, but also performance in reference to external constraints. We believe that such reality-based measurements will enhance real-world business performance.

We also believe that these next-generation indicators deliver on the deferred promise of the Sustainability Context Principle, and offer a common sense approach to harmonization. Want to pilot these pioneering indicators? Give us a shout!
