The Great Reset

New paradigm

A new way of thinking requires an orientation towards the overall system.

Shareholder Value

Economic success is the top priority. Environment and people are resources that are used for the benefit of maximising profits.

Stakeholder Value

Economy, society and the environment are equal and largely independent systems. At the points of contact, interests are balanced.

System Value

The company is part of society is part of the overall system of living nature. Economic activity is sustainable if it makes a meaningful contribution to the higher-level systems.

Decade of action

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the framework for this.

  • In 2016 the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations (UN) were implemented.

  • The global community has committed to a sustainability agenda up to 2030.

“Today we are making a decision of great historical importance. We resolve to create a better future for all people, including millions who have so far been denied the opportunity to live decent, dignified and fulfilling lives and to achieve their full human potential. We can be the first generation to eradicate poverty and, at the same time, maybe the last generation to have the chance to save our planet. If we can achieve our goals, we will have changed the world for the better by 2030. “

From the declaration of the 2030 Agenda, page 13

Business as usual is not an option

The future viability of companies depends on their sustainability. Companies with sustainable business models are more stable, more resilient and economically more sustainable. The time to transform business models is right now.

More and more customers and investors want to know whether the products they buy or invest in have been produced sustainably and under fair conditions. Employees want to be able to identify positively with the company in which they work. It cannot be dismissed: Responsible corporate management provides better access to customers, talents and business partners.

Jörg Asmussen
State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs

As I have written in past letters, a company cannot achieve long-term profits without embracing purpose and considering the needs of a broad range of stakeholders. […] Given the groundwork we have already laid engaging on disclosure, and the growing investment risks surrounding sustainability, we will be increasingly disposed to vote against management and board directors when companies are not making sufficient progress on sustainability-related disclosures and the business practices and plans underlying them.
