  • 18. Designing  with  Permaculture  Principles  
  • 19. Natural  Capitalism:  CreaLng  the  Next  Industrial  RevoluLon   is  a  1999  book  co-­‐authored  by  Paul  Hawken,  Amory  Lovins   and  Hunter  Lovins.  It  has  been  translated  into  a  dozen   languages  and  was  the  subject  of  a  Harvard  Business  Review   summary.[2]   In  Natural  Capitalism  the  authors  describe  the  global   economy  as  being  dependent  on  natural  resources  and   ecosystem  services  that  nature  provides.  Natural  Capitalism   is  a  criLque  of  tradiLonal  "Industrial  Capitalism",  saying  that   the  tradiLonal  system  of  capitalism  "does  not  fully  conform   to  its  own  accounLng  principles.  It  liquidates  its  capital  and   calls  it  income.  It  neglects  to  assign  any  value  to  the  largest   stocks  of  capital  it  employs  -­‐  the  natural  resources  and  living   systems,  as  well  as  the  social  and  cultural  systems  that  are   the  basis  of  human  capital."   Natural  capitalism  recognizes  the  criLcal  interdependency   between  the  producLon  and  use  of  human-­‐made  capital   and  the  maintenance  and  supply  of  natural  capital.[3]  The   authors  argue  that  only  through  recognizing  this  essenLal   relaLonship  with  the  Earth's  valuable  resources  can   businesses,  and  the  people  they  support,  conLnue  to  exist.  
  • 20. “Respond  to  basic  needs  with  what  you  have,   introducing  innova0ons  inspired  by  nature,   genera0ng  mul0ple  benefits,  including  jobs   and  social  capital,  offering  more  with  less:  This   is  the  Blue  Economy.”   Gunter  Pauli,  ini@ator  of  the  Blue  Economy     The  Blue  Economy  is  a  progressive   metamorphosis  from  the  Green  Economy.   Based  on  the  noLon  of  thinking  ahead  so  as  to   create  more  good,  instead  of  less  bad,  it  uses   strategic,  opportunity-­‐driven  raLonale  to   connect  the  environmental,  social  and   financial  puzzle.  It  is  a  business  response  to  a   changing  economic  landscape  in  which   resource  depleLon  and  social  costs  are   unsustainable.    
  • 21. The  Blue  Economy:  10  years  -­‐  100  innovaLons  -­‐  100  million   jobs  is  a  book  by  Gunter  Pauli.  The  book  expresses  the   ulLmate  aim  that  a  Blue  Economy  business  model  will  shik   society  from  scarcity  to  abundance  "with  what  we  have",     by  tackling  issues  that  cause  environmental  and  related   problems  in  new  ways.  The  book  highlights  potenLal   benefits  in  connecLng  and  combining  seemingly  disparate   environmental  problems  with  open-­‐source  scienLfic   soluLons  based  upon  physical  processes  common  in  the   natural  world,  to  create  soluLons  that  are  both   environmentally  beneficial  and  which  have  financial  and   wider  social  benefits.     The  book  suggests  that  we  can  alter  the  way  in  which  we   run  our  industrial  processes  and  tackle  resultant   environmental  problems,  refocusing  from  the  use  of  rare   and  high-­‐energy  cost  resources  to  instead  seek  soluLons   based  upon  simpler  and  cleaner  technologies.  The  book   aims  to  inspire  entrepreneurs  to  adopt  its  insights,  by   demonstraLng  ways  in  which  this  can  create  economic   benefits  via  job  creaLon,  reduced  energy  use,  and  more   revenue  streams  from  each  step  of  the  process,  at  the  same   Lme  benefiLng  the  communiLes  involved
