We are measuring impact BEYOND sustainability. What about you?

Posted By Cecilia Latapí, SVX México, Friday, April 27, 2018
Hello!
 
We want to invite you to join a collaborative effort to define what REGENERATIVE - going beyond sustainability - means in our daily practice and to design the metrics for measuring it. Our aim is to collect as many opinions as possible from regenerative practitioners and others with different perspectives, taking into account as many voices as possible before ReGen18 in early May 2018.
 
In the words of Kevin Jones, co-convenor of ReGen18 and co-founder of SOCAP: "the challenge for regenerative metrics is that we have to find a way for them to add value, instead of being seen as a cost." 
 
The intention of this undertaking is a collaboratively-designed, co-created regenerative tool to provide organizations the capacity to determine the positive and negative impacts of their practices while establishing some common ground on what regeneration means, its sector-specific metrics, and guidance on best practices for generating Regenerative outcomes. 
 
As a first step, we invite you to participate in the following survey: https://goo.gl/forms/Q7tZMLp5fIKRSOIu1 
 
The results of this survey will be made available to all participants and presented during ReGen18 for further discussion and exploration. After the event, we will keep working on the project on a shared platform, aiming to develop our regenerative tool with your participation (the resulting tool will be placed in the public domain under a Creative Commons license).
 
If you are doing something similar, working on ideas that could contribute or are interested in co-creating in this exciting new field of endeavor, we want to hear from you!
 
Thanks for co-creating with us.  We look forward to your contributions.
 
 
- Holly Dublin, Kevin Jones, Cecilia Latapi, Laura Ortiz Montemayor, Shaun Paul @ ReGen18

G20 Platform launches Inclusive Business Survey

Posted By Kathleen Mignano, International Finance Corporation, Friday, February 26, 2016

 

On behalf of the G20 Global Platform on Inclusive Business (GPIB), I would like to invite you to participate in the GPIB Inclusive Business Survey. The survey will take less than ten minutes of your time, and your input will help us to build the conversation with policy-makers around inclusive business. We want to hear what policies have helped you to engage with people living at the base of the pyramid (BOP), as well as what policies you think need to be changed. 

 

The G20 has recognized inclusive businesses as having the potential to be a driving force for inclusion and sustainability. These are companies that extend last-mile water, power, and mobile phone service to customers in rural areas, or that train, finance, and create markets for small farmers. They treat low-income patients or teach low-income students. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to give us your input. Whether your experience is as a multinational corporation, a local business, or a start-up social enterprise, if you are a commercially-viable organization providing goods, services, or livelihoods to the BOP, we want to hear from you.

The GPIB was endorsed by the G20 in 2015 and is jointly implemented by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the UNDP. Designed as a global partnership, the GPIB connects policy-makers and business behind a mission that is both pro-poor and pro-business. GPIB strives to help governments support inclusive companies more effectively and to facilitate the adoption of inclusive business policy.
  
Survey results will not only be discussed at the G20 Development Working Group, they will also inform GPIB’s future research efforts. You can find the results on the upcoming GPIB website.
