May 20, 2021 / CSRwire / – Net Impact announces its 2021-2022 theme: The Regenerative Economy: Reimagined Capitalism for People and Planet, a concept founded on the belief that society must urgently work together to change an economic system based on principles of regeneration.
In its 2020-2021 theme of Reimagining Capitalism, Net Impact has drawn the curtain to discuss current systems and institutional shortcomings in support of a just and sustainable world. Through the 10-event series, audiences began to reimagine how an evolving economic system could respect planetary boundaries and ensure a social foundation for all.
“The year 2020 has brought to light the shortcomings of our systems to deal with climate change, racial injustice and inequalities, and social and economic inequalities. Growing pessimism is missing out on the history of humanity, which is rising to the challenge. At Net Impact, we believe that the relentless ambition and innovative minds within our global community can continue to forge gains for people and the planet as social innovation comes to produce plausible exponential positive results, ” says Peter Lupoff, CEO of Net Impact. “Now that we enter this new era, we bring a common goal to further accelerate the alliance between people and industry to conserve the planet’s resources and ensure health and opportunity for all.
Net Impact, through the series The Regenerative Economy, using targeted programs, events and strategic initiatives, aims to harness the power of business as a force for good, to hasten a shifting narrative in the direction of regenerative principles, instead of acceptance of those. Over the next year, Net Impact will lead conversations and provide opportunities to learn and apply principles of regeneration in business, social innovation and, fundamentally, in our way of life, to consider what we value, how we work and what change we work to adopt. Leveraging their unique partnerships and community, Net Impact will dive deep into the sub-themes with experts from business, sustainability, investing and finance, academia, justice, equity, inclusion and diversity (JEDI), etc.
Net Impact believes that together we can forge a more regenerative economy, an economy that unleashes business innovation while maintaining a social base and respecting our planetary borders.
