The Regenerative Business Prize

Our previous regenerative business prize was sponsored by Jeffrey Hollender, co-founder and former CEO of Seventh Generation, founder and CEO of Sustain Natural.

This prize honors businesses in pursuit of a regenerative business paradigm as articulated in the seven “First Principles” of Regeneration. Honorees will be businesses with a deep and extended scope of aspiration to pursue and achieve shifts in one or more industries, show transformation in a social system, work to unravel and evolve cultural paradigms, and leverage governing agreements to give them new life and meaning.
