Rendering Sustainability Measurable and Comparable
Evaluating the sustainability performance of institutions, projects or buildings requires a science-based and data-driven approach in combination with qualitative field-research. The resulting rating- and reporting tools must be transparent and ensure the prevention of model arbitrage ("greenwashing") through a calibrated benchmarking system that renders sustainability measurable, comparable and verifiable.
Empowering Business and Entrepreneurship to Promote Inclusive Growth
People should have a go in their entrepreneurial strivings toward the realization of their potentials and opportunities. Local business and SMEs through productive exchange enable better connection of rural areas with urban centers that results in continual creation of new markets, jobs, and growth. CCRS advocates a practice-oriented approach that is based on trial and error in the search for scalable solutions dedicated to attaining UN SDG 8.
Empowering Innovation for Sustainable Change
Growth of business inevitably leads to growth in innovations in affluent and low-income countries. Many social, economic, and environmental challenges are becoming innovatively overcome in a range of examples from low-carbon economy, waste disposal, application of biotechnology in agriculture, sustainable housing, through the integration of disadvantaged groups in the markets.
Empowering Public-Private Partnership
Incentives that will motivate private sector to take the risk to invest and develop their business largely depend on the governments and the regulatory frameworks they set. By creating a supportive and accountable environment for individual realizations, governments and people get allied in attaining socially and economically sustainable and prosperous future.
Economic Integration of Low-Income Countries
Poverty is the main enemy of sustainable development. Lack of market integration accounts for most of the extreme poverty. Better trade and entrepreneurship, fashioned by the principles of inclusivity and equity, and application of rule of law, alleviate depriving material, physical and social condition. Empowering low-income countries leads to enabling food security, expansion of markets, stabilizing migration, and increasing diversity.
Empowering Science Based Research and Data
The world grows and changes thanks to the global knowledge and its exchange. Scientific research has a leading role in the diversification of approaches to poverty, health, food shortage, migration, or environmental problems. The flow of scientific data from qualitative and quantitative research enables better assessment of the problem and thus delivery of sensible and applicable solutions.
