Towards Zero Impact Growth: Strategies of leading companies in 10 industries | Sustainable Brands | Office Kuki | Scoop.it

Consultancy Deloitte teamed up with sustainability visionary John Elkington to help make Elkington’s vision of a zero-impact growth economy more accessible to major corporations. The team developed a scoring system to plot companies along Elkington’s “pathway to zero,” the five stages from recognizing the opportunity of a zero-impact growth strategy to fully embracing one. Of 65 companies studied, none had yet reached the final stage but according to the analysis, six companies — Puma, Natura, Nestlé, Nike, and Ricoh and Unilever — have arrived at the fourth stage.

To Change The World, Change The Story - Introducing StoryLab

To Change The World, Change The Story - Introducing StoryLab | Office Kuki | Scoop.it

StoryLab is a new hub for innovation with a big aim: to radically improve public conversation in the U.S. and around the world. Everybody talks about it, but CDS actually knows how to do it.

To change the world, you first have to change the story.

 

Here is an organization I think everyone should know about -- the Center for Digital Storytelling (CDS). They have been, and continue to provide world-class training in digital storytelling grounded in the power of a story dynamics to make a difference.

 

They are launching a new project -- StoryLab -- which aims to engage people in changing stories that keep us stuck, limited -- like our political discourse, violence, aids, etc. -- and expressing those stories that eliven and enoble us. Truly great work.

 

So why am I curating this and what has it got to do with business? Well -- imagine applying these same principles and ideas to the stories you share about your business, engaging your organization in this kind of deep story sharing that changes the world, and engaging with customers to create profound partnerships that make a difference.

 

Hmmmm -- I think there are lots of opportunities here and StoryLab is showing us the way.

 

The video on the StoryLab page also mentions supporting the project through donations. That is up to you. I have no affiliation with the Center other than our mutual love of story and its transformative power, and an amazing conversation I had a few years ago with founder Joe Lambert.

 

IMHO, thank heavens they are doing this project. There are so many others in the field of story that also work with story for transformative change. Let's keep hooking up. It is in this spirit that I bring you StoryLab.

How Patagonia Uses Social to Protect the Planet [Case Study] | | Pivot Conference 2012

How Patagonia Uses Social to Protect the Planet [Case Study] | | Pivot Conference 2012 | Office Kuki | Scoop.it

Since its inception, Patagoniahas been a brand with purpose. It has made bold decisions to protect the environment and encourage consumers to reduce their carbon footprints. In 1972, when founder Yvon Chouinard realized his climbing equipment was creating rock damage he made a risky business decision to phase out the popular gear and introduce an environmentally friendly alternative through the launch of Patagonia’s first catalog. More recently, in December of 2011, they ran a full-page ad in the New York Times discouraging consumers from purchasing one of its jackets because it took so much water and energy to make.Now, in a world of constant connectivity and increasing social media activity, how is this purpose-based brand pushing to new heights to promote environmentalism and extend its footprint?
