How to Build Financially Sustainable Social Enterprises

Tra­di­tional busi­nesses find a path to finan­cial sus­tain­abil­ity by grow­ing their rev­enue, improv­ing their gross and oper­at­ing mar­gins, increas­ing their free cash flow, effi­ciently man­ag­ing both cap­i­tal expen­di­tures and work­ing cap­i­tal, and build­ing their asset base. Achiev­ing these finan­cial per­for­mance indi­ca­tors typ­i­cally result in easy access to financ­ing and higher stock prices.

Valuating Nature

The goods and services that we depend on daily would not exist without the assistance of nature in the supply chain. Humans constantly derive ecosystem services from nature, like how watersheds source our taps and faucets or how bees fertilize plants for our morning cup of coffee.
