Net Impact announces its 2021-2022 theme: The Regenerative Economy: Reimagined Capitalism for People and Planet, a concept built on the belief that society must urgently work together to evolve an economic system leveraging regenerative principles.
In their 2020-2021 theme of Reimagining Capitalism, Net Impact drew back the curtain to discuss current systems and institutional deficiencies in support of a just and sustainable world. Through the 10 event series, audiences began to reimagine how an evolving economic system might abide by planetary limits and assure a social foundation for all people.
“2020 shone a light on our systems’ deficiencies in dealing with climate change, racial injustice and inequity, and social and economic inequality. A mounting pessimism misses the history of humankind rising to the occasion. We at Net Impact believe that the relentless ambition and innovative minds within our global community can continue to forge gains for people and planet while social innovation comes to cause plausible exponential favorable outcomes,” shares Peter Lupoff, CEO of Net Impact. “Now as we enter this new period, we bring a shared objective to further hasten the allyship amongst people and industry to preserve the planet’s resources and assure health and opportunity for all people.”
Net Impact, through The Regenerative Economy series, utilizing targeted programs, events and strategic initiatives, aims to harness the power of business as a force for good, to hasten a changing narrative in the direction of regenerative principals, in place of the acceptance of degenerative ones. Over the course of the next year, Net Impact will lead conversations and offer opportunities to learn and apply regenerative principles in business, social innovation, and fundamentally, in our way of living, to consider what we value, how we work, and what change we are working to enact. Leveraging their unique partnerships and community, Net Impact will dive deep into sub-themes with experts across the fields of business, sustainability, investing and finance, academia, Justice, Equity, Inclusion and Diversity (JEDI), and more.
Net Impact believes that together we can forge a more regenerative economy, one that unleashes business innovation while maintaining a social foundation and abides by our planetary boundaries.
