Building Sustainable Legacies


Goodbye Global Greed

Some of you may have heard of an exciting thing happening in Europe – the Economy of the Common Goods movement which started in Austria and was spearheaded by Christian Felber (www.gemeinwohl-oekonomie.org – no worries there is English information). As the first university worldwide, Business School Lausanne has undertaken the company self-evaluation of the “matrix” and is currently in the official audit process. What an amanzing and eye-opening experience this was for us! It allowed not only to identify important blindspots, but also to speed up an internal transformational process towards fully embracing and integrating sustainability and responsibility in everything we do. Take a look now at a funny and provocative comic that was developed by Herbert Wegscheider, a contributing member of the Economy of the Common Goods movement (click on the image below to download the file):

The Common Good Economy (CGE) – an option to replace capitalism and socialism

CGE Founder Christian Felber will speak at BSL on March 12th during a Collaboratory event open to all public as of 5.30pm. We will consider and debate a new economic vision and the concrete entreprise tool of the Common Goods Matrix (CGM) developed by a group of visionary Austrian entrepreneurs in 2010. Meanwhile, more than 800 companies in more than 10 countries have adopted the CGM as a way to measure their impact on society, including BSL as the first business school to complete such an analysis in the world.

So what? The collaboratory method provides a way for all event participants to take part of the debate of how to introduce the CGE and CGM in the region of Lausanne and get stakeholders to make the quantum leap to a way of operating a business and an economy that serve people and planet.

Are you curious and want to know some more? If you speak German, check out: www.gemeinwohl-oekonomie.org (the CGE/CGM site), if not, here a couple of youtube links that paint the picture very nicely:
