Blueprints overview

Content development

Our Blueprints represent the core of r3.0’s knowledge creation, with the goal of identifying the gap between current practice / ambition and necessary progress (based on scientific realities and ethical imperatives) with recommendations on how to fill those gaps. The first phase of Blueprint development (2016-2018) focused on four fields (Reporting, Accounting, Data, and New Business Models) with a fifth Blueprint synthesizing and integrating the other four into an implementation framework (Transformation Journey). The second phase of Blueprint development (2019-2021) focuses on Sustainable Finance and Value Cycles, with other fields to follow. The Blueprints build the “engine” of r3.0’s work-ecosystem, generating the content needed and defining recommended solutions in an iterative manner to fuel innovation and systemic change. Blueprint Lead Authors convene Working Groups of 20+ international experts in a 12-to-18-month process gathering state-of-the-art research, best practices, innovative approaches and co-created recommendations that feed into two Exposure Drafts of the Blueprint. The Working Group reviews each Exposure Draft via an In-Person Working Group Meeting and a Virtual Dialogue (with a Public Comment period added during the second round), after which the Lead Author revises each Blueprint into a Final Report. In a dynamic process of content dissemination and feedback gathering, the different Blueprints are iteratively updated in 2 year cycles.
