Creative Destruction - Conscious Capitalism
28th October 2016
The future of success lies with conscious capitalism, with conscious leaders and entrepreneurs who not only contribute to the economy but aim to positively impact the world around them.
EcoPlanet Bamboo's CEO Troy Wiseman featured by Capitalism: Be the Change in an article on the role of Conscious Capitalism. Conscious capitalism, which Wiseman describes as a blending of heart and mind, has been at the core of EcoPlanet Bamboo's operations since the company's inception in 2010. EcoPlanet Bamboo, fundamentally blends the desires of the company's co-founders to positively impact the environment through the provision of market based solutions, bring about significant positive change to communities that are suffering from severe poverty and a lack of opportunity, and be financially competitive in towards business environment.
In summary - EcoPlanet Bamboo's investments represent triple bottom line investments, aiming to deliver equally on financial, social and environmental returns, while being independently audited by the most stringent certification and sustainability standards available.
This concept of Conscious Capitalism features throughout EcoPlanet Bamboo's bamboo plantation operations in Nicaragua, South Africa and Ghana and will be extended to manufacturing operations as these continue to be developed. This innovative model of private sector development has been recognized and featured across a range of institutions, and provides a template for economically viable forest landscape restoration across Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa.
