Sustainable business development

Our approach

  • Innovation: We think outside the box to move sustainability forward.
  • Co-Creation: We develop and achieve your sustainability goals together.
  • Enabling: We focus on knowledge transfer and provide a network so that you are empowered to continue the path.
  • Connection: The relevant stakeholders are proactively involved. Because sustainability always happens in the context of the community.

Businesses cannot thrive in societies and ecosystems that fail. A regenerative economy goes beyond sustainability and refers to business practices that restore and build rather than exploit and destroy. 

Impact Hub Basel is a platform for entrepreneurs that advocate for a regenerative and distributive economy. One of the key concepts we focus on is “Doughnut Economics“. We believe that it is possible to combine economic success with social and environmental responsibility to create an economy that works for all people and our planet.

Doughnut economics, by British economist Kate Raworth, aims to create an economy that meets the needs of people within planetary boundaries.

  • a social foundation, to ensure that no one is left falling short on life’s essentials (food, health, education, social equality),
  • an ecological ceiling, to ensure that humanity does not collectively overshoot the planetary boundaries (climate change, biodiversity, water consumption) that protect Earth’s systems.

As Impact Hub Basel, we see Doughnut Economics as an important approach to your business strategy. As an official partner, we help your team identify issues and solutions step by step.
