The methodology includes 5 principles namely Purpose, Planet, People, Partners, and Places. Each of the 5 sections of the Compass review opens with a key question which we invite you to sit quietly with and live. Take a step back and spend as much time as you can embracing what these larger questions mean for you and your business.

The Compass for Regenerative Business is a transformational methodology going beyond ESG and certifications.


It provides any business with the chance to future-proof its activities and be ahead of the curve.


It has been co-designed in collaboration with 200+ businesses, academics and practitioners - and inspired by the work of Daniel Christian Wahl, Carol Sanford, John Fullerton, Johan Rockstrom, Helena Norberg and many others.


Have you ever wondered about the impact potential of your business?


Businesses pass through three main developmental stages on the path to a Regenerative and Equitable economy: “Do Less Harm”, “Do No Harm”, “Restorative” and “Regenerative and Equitable”.


The fourth developmental field of “Regenerative and Equitable” is where Regenerative businesses exist, at the cutting edge. This field represents a critical shift in mindset away from previous models of business which were designed to extract resources and exploit humans.

Everyone talks about sustainability but putting theory into practice requires guidance and expertise.


Being future-fit goes beyond being responsible. It is the only way for your company to be on top of its game and survive.

Investing today into what matters is the only way for your company to thrive in a few years' time. We believe most of the late players will either disappear or pay the high cost of transformation.
