When Business Meets the Doughnut
Version 2.0 (January 2020)
Please note: all businesses, business consultants, and for-profit organisations interested in engaging with the concepts of Doughnut Economics must first read the 'How can business engage with the Doughnut?' question in DEAL's FAQ and follow DEAL's conditions for business.
The Doughnut envisions a world that meets the needs of all people within the means of the living planet. It's a world that is regenerative, rather than degenerative. And it is far more distributive of value and opportunity than today’s economy. What, then, does it mean for the future of business?
In this 18 minute video Kate Raworth introduces the essential elements of Doughnut Economics for Enterprise, including:
- Embracing the Doughnut as the 21st century goal
- Creating a business that aims to be regenerative and distributive by design
- Aligning the design traits of the business itself, through its Purpose, Networks, Governance, Ownership and Finance.
The aim of this tool is to facilitate a deep reflection on the internal organisational design of a business, and on what systemic changes are needed if it is to become regenerative and distributive by design, and so help bring humanity into the Doughnut.
