Commonland

Commonland

Member of the r3.0 Advocation Partner Program

 
Commonlands systemic model to restore large ecosystems with business model is called four returns, three zones, twenty years (‘4 returns’), and is meant as an alternative for our current economic model of maximization of Return on Investment per hectare. The current model has led to worldwide degradation of at least 2 billion hectares (twice the size of the US). Degradation is connected to the biodiversity extinction crisis, climate change, food production, health and migration. Commonland started with a scientific publication introducing ‘4 returns, 3 zones, 20 years’, a holistic and practical business framework that uses a common language, is evidence based – using technology and social stakeholder management tools with the aim to establish Landscape Restoration Partnerships between people living on the land, companies, investors, governments and business schools, to restore degraded ecosystems that gives multiple returns, while teaching practical lessons and reaching international restoration targets.
 
In 2013 Commonland was founded by the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management (network of ecological scientists under the IUCN), the Rotterdam School of Management of the Erasmus University and a private foundation. In Commonland provides long term support to local people to restore degraded landscapes and ecosystems, generating inspirational, social, natural, and sustainable financial returns: the 4 returns framework. It is a holistic people oriented ‘ecosystem business canvas model’, and connects three landscape zones: natural, combined and economic zones during a time frame of minimal one generation (20 years). Our goal is to deliver those 4 returns by realizing large-scale landscape restoration projects and business cases together with our partners: local farmers, land-users, experts, investors and governments. The last five years we have focused in the field on a ‘proof of concept’ track record in four large landscapes in general more than 0,5m ha (South Africa, Spain, Australia, Netherlands). Since 2017 we help other implementing parties in seven other countries. In 2018 in Australia we were able to bring a 4 returns company to the Australian Stock Exchange (see 2 pager attached). We are working in close cooperation with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration and many other experts, but our focus is on the Landscape Restoration Partnerships with farmers, landowners, local authorities, conservationists and entrepreneurs, etc. 
 
Besides establishing Landscape Restoration Partnerships, Commonland also shares its lessons learned with the business students community
via MOOCs (online courses) as they are the leaders of the future:
For more background information see also the Royal Address that was held for the Dutch Parliament in 2017. Our ambition is that the 4 returns becomes the new norm in 2030 as part of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

“We know that we need to restore the ecology of our planet, so transforming mindsets of farmers, experts, investors and authorities, all of us, is critical. That is why the Reporting 3.0 and  mplementing Thriveable Transformation’ is well chosen. As an Advocation Partner I am looking forward to share our experiences on how transforming people can lead to massively turn degraded landscapes into thriving ecosystems and communities.”

“We’re building a lot of value for our members and for the community at Coop Power, but most of it doesn’t show up in our financial reports. New financial reporting tools are needed and reporting 3.0 has gone a long way in describing what that new reporting paradigm might look like.”

Deep White

Deep White

Member of the r3.0 Advocation Partner Program

We at deep white have built a tool that uses a methodology, developed together with the University of St. Gallen, to measure corporate culture and enable the benchmarking of its characteristics in correlation to financial success. Since our studies have found that corporate social responsibility is the main driver, we have developed an additional set of indicators, derived from the standard guidelines like GRI4, UNGC, EMAS, DJSI, DNK etc. that allows us to answer questions like: How firmly established are the principles of sustainability within the mindset of an organisation? Based on the results we run a SWOT analysis to develop courses of action for further improvement related to strategy formation, internal/external communication, organisational development etc.
Furthermore deep white provides consultancy services through thorough business analysis to help its customers to take advantage of digitalisation potentials. Its corporate culture analysis supports these activities by providing insights about e.g. the organisational readiness to adopt the change that results from these digitalisation projects.

“As an entrepreneur it is important to me to keep moving and to break new ground. I want to create and long-term value – for our customers, company, employees and partners. Turning visions into reality cooperatively, mastering challenges and shaping the future – that is what I stand for. Customer satisfaction is always our top priority. Competence, reliability and quality are just as important to me as an encounter at eye level. Creating added value, integrated solutions in a holistic context requires a strong, diverse network. r3.0 offers exactly this network. Becoming an advocation partner is the logical step and I am very much looking forward to working with the many other inspiring “positive mavericks”.”
