The Regenerative Framework & White Paper


For the past few years, Capital Institute and its collaborative network have been on an evolutionary learning journey…searching for a path that will lead us beyond our current unsustainable economic system and the finance-dominated ideology that drives it.

What we discovered is a new way of thinking about economics and how we manage our free enterprise system, aligned with our scientific understanding of how the universe actually works and with our shared values.

We call it Regenerative Capitalism.

On April 21, 2015, the co-created Regenerative Capitalism framework and peer-reviewed white paper were launched at an event hosted by Yale University’s Center for Business & the Environment.  

A year later, the paper has been re-released in Spanish.
