View highlights from our Regenerative Capitalism launch, including a conversation with John Fullerton and Patagonia’s Director of Philosophy Vincent Stanley.
Capital Institute Founder John Fullerton reflects on his regenerative journey.
Capital Institute is a non-partisan think tank launched in 2010 by former JPMorgan Managing Director John Fullerton.
Our mission is to explore and effect the economic transition to a more just, regenerative, and thus sustainable way of living on this earth through the transformation of finance. Through our thought leadership, storytelling, and activating projects we illuminate how our financial system can operate as a restorative, even regenerative agent, supporting a new way of living on this earth that promotes a shared social, economic, and ecological prosperity.
In his latest post, John Fullerton reflects on the Paris attacks and how our shared work to address the interconnected crises must carry on with heightened urgency, unbowed in the face of terror.
Last week, John Fullerton hosted the closing session of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s 2015 Disruptive Innovation Festival. The festival showcased how thought-leaders, business innovators, makers, learners and doers are challenging the linear ‘take-make-dispose’ model of the economy. John’s talk focused on Regenerative Capitalism.
In April 2015, Capital Institute released Regenerative Capitalism at an event hosted by Yale University. The collaboratively created framework and accompanying white paper calls on business leaders and policymakers to fundamentally rethink economics and how our free enterprise system operates.
