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.

Our Vision

We envision a world in which business organizations work for the overarching purpose of creating joint human, environmental, and economic value.


Our Mission

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.

Human Value
