The regenerative economy: renewed sustainability
In a world facing a multitude of ecological and social challenges, the regenerative economy is emerging as a holistic response to the quest for sustainable prosperity. Unlike the linear, extractive approach that has dominated the global economic landscape for decades, the regenerative economy offers a bold vision that integrates ecological regeneration, social equity and economic viability.
1. The regenerative economy defined
While the traditional economy focuses primarily on growth and profit, often to the detriment of the environment and people, the regenerative economy emphasises restoration, renewal and revitalisation. Its aim is not simply to minimise damage, but to create systems that enrich and restore resources.
