The GOLDEN Sustainability Database on Corporate Sustainability Behaviour
Data for Academic Research and Corporate Transformation Action
HELP CREATE FLOURISHING BUSINESSES AND SOCIETIES
Catalysing business transformation for HUMAN, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND ECONOMIC VALUE CREATION through the development and sharing of data from the GOLDEN SUSTAINABILITY DATABASE on corporate sustainability behaviour and through TRANSFORMATIVE ACTION IN CO-LABS.
GOLDEN is an innovative co-lab where a global community of executives and experts from Business, Academia, Social Enterprises and Institutions co-create and experiment with databased enterprise models of enterprise for economic and human value creation.
Our distinctive approach to knowledge co-creation combines insights derived from analysing data in our unique database on corporate sustainability behaviour, and from collaborative experiments within business organisations on the adaptation of the core elements of business toward human value creation.
This allows not only the emergence of cutting edge knowledge and insights through academic research projects, but also the nurturing of innovation and change capacity in companies committed to the transition towards integrated environmental, economic and human value creation for all concerned stakeholders.
We envision a world in which business organizations work for the overarching purpose of creating joint human, environmental, and economic value.
We realise our vision by developing and sharing data on corporate sustainability behaviour from the GOLDEN Sustainability Database on corporate sustainability initiatives and by catalysing the evolution of business and their ecosystems through collaborative innovation, learning and transformational change programs.
We define human value as the realization of the highest human potential in terms of
well-being, education, work, inclusion and self-actualization in a flourishing natural environment and eco-system.
We deploy this innovative research and impact logic at three distinct level:
Leveraging insights from the work with the GOLDEN Sustainability Database for creation of models on the optimal sustainability strategies in different settings.
Tailored programs focusing on mindset evolution through executive education programs, re-envisioning purpose, road mapping and piloting transformational change.
System analysis and intervention strategy design/experimentation for institutions, corporations, industry organisations, and their stakeholders.
The transformational journey leverages the following integrated areas of expertise:
Human Value Creation
A global community of researchers, managers and organizations
