Episode 14: Hunter Lovins| New thinking that will drive Regenerative Capitalism, the next wave beyond sustainability
From a vantage point of 40 years experience helping create the field of sustainability, Hunter Lovins is in an excellent position to explain where sustainability is today–and to highlight the latest thinking that will drive regenerative practices, the next wave beyond sustainability. Hunter is the President of Natural Capitalism Solutions, an entrepreneurial NGO that helps companies, communities and countries implement more regenerative practices profitably. Hunter is on the steering committee of Leading for Well-Being, an international team charged by the King of Bhutan to reinvent the global economy. A Professor of Sustainable Business at Bard MBA in New York, she is also one of the entrepreneurs creating Change Finance, an advisory moving money from harm to healing.
In this podcast, Hunter gives her vision for a sustainable future, building on A Finer Future, a forthcoming book she is co-writing for the Club of Rome, on whose Executive Committee she serves. Hunter talks about the power of resource efficiency, renewable energy, and the potential for tax shifting. She describes the potential for positive change with cutting-edge ideas like Biomimicry and Regenerative Capitalism. This is a resolutely positive vision of change and building a better world, inspired by Buckmister Fuller, Dana Meadows and many others. But it is only possible if we take action today.
