3 3 © be sustainable pte Ltd. JULY 2013 be sustainable pte Ltd be sustainable pte Ltd is an international group of companies that provide complete, integrated services in the area of sustainability. By choreographing a global group of sustainability experts, be sustainable ® delivers solutions that bring about transformational change and enhance the triple bottom line of organisations and projects. Based on the principles of the Blue Economy, our ethos is to assimilate solutions from nature (biomimicry) to respond to global sustainability challenges more effectively. Nature’s systems are efficient, closed loop, produce a net positive impact and bring benefit to all. Our aim is to create value, employment opportunities and eliminate inefficiencies, bringing profitable advantages without negative outcomes. We draw upon Blue Economy thinking to facilitate a shift in the accepted paradigm, demonstrating how sustainable action can create multiple additional revenue streams and make good business sense.

4 4 © be sustainable pte Ltd. JULY 2013 About the Blue Economy Gunter Pauli, initiator of The Blue Economy The Blue Economy is a progressive metamorphosis from the Green Economy. Based on the notion of thinking ahead so as to create more good, not just less bad, it uses strategic, opportunity-driven rationale to connect the environmental, social and financial puzzle. It is a business response to a changing economic landscape in which resource depletion and social costs are unsustainable. “Respond to basic needs with what you have, introducing innovations inspired by nature, generating multiple benefits, including jobs and social capital, offering more with less: This is the Blue Economy.” Explanation of The Blue Economy from the Simple ShowSimple Show

5 5 © be sustainable pte Ltd. JULY 2013 Profitable and sustainable The Blue Economy doesn’t mean managing with less, in fact it ultimately leads to abundance and prosperity. It follows patterns in nature that first respond to need and then flourish. Our present economic model relies on scarcity to create value and demand. This is unsustainable. The Blue Economy celebrates collaboration, innovation and the collective strength of organisations to create transformational change.. “Nature works with what is locally available. Sustainable business evolves with respect not only for local resources, but also for culture and tradition.” Gunter Pauli

6 6 © be sustainable pte Ltd. JULY 2013 Blue Economy and your business Businesses and organisations are complicated, dynamic systems with many facets. They face interrelated problems of a systemic nature. Traditional solutions can result in unintended outcomes. Blue Economy based interventions address the whole business model. They create sophisticated, systemically derived solutions that are efficient, effective and simple. Most importantly these principles eliminate unwanted consequences whilst positively impacting the triple bottom line. The results: people, planet and profit. People Planet Profit TBL Creating a fair society Living within environmental limits Building a sustainable business

8 8 Our methodology be sustainable’s ® integrated solutions feed into each other, with the aim of closing loops and generating revenue and profit at each stage, while having a net positive impact. Our world is an interconnected ecosystem. Every action we take has a reaction elsewhere in the system. Our approach is to synergistically merge knowledge, skills, experience and creativity into a collective intelligence, creating nature-inspired solutions to man-made problems.
