Action Initiatives: Regenerating Natural & Social Systems

Amazon & other ecosystems: We collaborate with initiatives that protect and regenerate crucial ecosystems via policy and education, impact investment and regenerative business initiatives that also create regenerative value for the people whose livelihood depends on these habitats.

Regenerative Agriculture, in its best applications, is more productive than chemical-base industrial farming. It can regenerate degenerated soil and water, sequester massive amounts of carbon, and protect biodiversity and local economies. We support knowledge exchange and large-scale implementation with some of the best global practitioners and experts.

END PANDEMICS CAMPAIGN

End Pandemics Campaign aims to prevent future pandemics by eradicating the root causes of Covid-19 and the prior five pandemics, including HIV and Ebola. These solutions support biodiversity, climate and economic development. Our work in Thailand contributed to systematic implementation that is now being considered by ASEAN and will be presented to world leaders at the upcoming G20. -> Read more about the End Pandemics Action Initiative.

EQUITABLE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE

The Covid vaccination crisis highlights once more the crucial need for fair access to healthcare around the world as a central aspect of human dignity, socio-economic system resilience as well as regenerative business relevant market expansion. We collaborate with institutions like the United Nations, Philips and Yunus Pharma to create solutions.
