Challenges Opportunities Provide value added products and services witch are in harmony with people and planet

Identify market niches and provide new experience which enhance behavioral change towards sustainable living

Impact on local communities and on people´s lives

Be accountable to the people and stakeholders and demonstrate your success "My challenge while scaling-up greenSwop was to streamline the costs! I had to identify the critical areas in where I could save costs and than I had to reinvest at the right time in order to reach a certain size to benefit from economies of scale." of scaling-up strategies A Switzerland-based company producing bags and accessories out of old truck tarpaulins and used car seat belts, thus giving a second life to materials that would otherwise have ended up in a landfill. The products are traded as luxury goods. This price strategy allowed the company's successful growth. Such growth also meant considerable increase in the use of recycled materials, thus scaling-up Freitag’s impact on sustainable living. Case study: FREITAG

This method from the bestselling management book 'Business Model Generation' is geared to leading organizations and start-ups worldwide. (Osterwalder & Pigneur, 2010) Opportunities Costs of failure to adapt are extremely high Challenges Collaborative consumption business model ECF is a German company that designs urban farms to produce healthy vegetables and fish within the city environment. The idea addresses small and medium sized purchasers that can become potential city farmers such as supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, architects, schools and universities.

The production is CO2-neutral as no pesticides or transportation is needed. Furthermore it has a reduced water footprint. The ECF Farms seek to revolutionize the food production in cities and provide a significant contribution to climate protection in urban environments.

The company assists with the planning, development and construction of urban farms in specific locations, providing feasibility studies and crop yields estimations. Sustainability driven business models Range of business models for sustainable living Full Costs Business Model Collaborative

- Challenge: Find the right person! "When we started our business we were a small group that shared the information and we had clarity about the company's plans. But as the company grows, such informality has to be replaced by processes, technology and internal communication." "For me the 'right governance' was the real challenge!

intentional or unintentional
permanent or temporal
positive or negative A product or service has value added, when the production of them create extra value to consumers without causing additional environmental or social impacts What is impact assessment? Impact assessment is about sustainable change. This is change that comes about as a result of business ideas, projects or programm activities It involves understanding the nature of the change that has taken place (in your business) and to determine its significance (impacts) in people, planet and profit Identify your impacts Reviewing your impacts Energy generation Use of resources Collaborative transport:
Car sharing Consumers as producer:
Local farming Urban planing to decrease mobility needs Human-centered city design Affordable housing solutions Eco-housing Collaborative consumption:
Swopping services New culture habits (e.g. swopping) New leisure possibilities (e.g. sustainable consumption catwalk) And why is it relevant to entrepreneurs.... By assessing impacts, entrepreneurs can not only identify and magnify (and later on scale-up) the positive impacts on hotspots, but also reduce the negative ones More info on scaling-up will be presented in the blue ring, "4. Scale-up impacts" Lack of skills and training to assess triple bottom line impacts There are many methodologies available and entrepreneurs may not know which one they have to apply Information to measure the impacts are not available and/or it is difficult to understand and to implement Other approaches Lack of financial framework which supports the development of sustainable and innovative products and services.

scale-up Organizational scale-up Project & program scale-up Assessments are commonly seen as an extra effort for entrepreneurs while starting-up a business idea Thresholds (baselines) and methodologies are difficult to establish and therefore to measure The Spider Web helps to quickly evaluate your products, services or business ideas against an former/other version and to uncover areas of improvement for people, planet and profit. This tool represents graphically the trade-offs between the selected hotspots and the assigned qualitative scale of relevance. This ensures that every aspect of "people, planet, profit" is taken into account. In this canvas profit is not the only key factor. The business model canvas has been customized slightly to integrate the triple bottom line (People, Profit, Planet) and sustainable development. Puma engaged PWC and True Cost to develop a methodology to measure environmental impacts in the life cycle of PUMA’s conventional Suede sneakers versus a pair of PUMA’s soon-to-be-launched biodegradable InCycle Basket sneakers.

The analysis takes account of the environmental impacts caused by greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, waste and air pollution, as well as the use of natural resources such as water and land along the entire value chain, from the generation of raw materials and production processes to the consumer phase where the product is used, washed, dried, ironed and ultimately discarded.

You can find more details about this in our further reading section The PUMA Product Environmental Profit and Loss (EP&L) Puma´s environmental profit and loss account for the year ended 31 December 2010: http://about.puma.com/wp-content/themes/aboutPUMA_theme/financial-report/pdf/EPL080212final.pdf This tool aims to identify key issues of analyzed categories such as resource use, ecological and social challenges along the value chain in a quick, reliable and life-cycle-phase-specific way

The results highlight so called HOTSPOTS in the product chain. These can be seen as starting point if you want to elaborate actions for improvement in detail Example of SHSA from a retail company (Henkel, 2013) Sustainability Hot Spot Analysis: A streamlined life cycle assessment towards sustainable food chains: http://ifsa.boku.ac.at/cms/fileadmin/Proceeding2010/2010_WS4.4_Bienge.pdf Henkel, Laundry & Home Care (Henkel Sustainability#Master – Persil Duo-Caps compared with Persil liquid laundry detergent bottle): http://sustainabilityreport.henkel.com/typo3temp/pics/10635e9568.png How to scale-up business impacts on sustainable living...

Traditionally these are considered as externalities Full Cost Business Model encourages organizations to work together on the development of production processes, products, services, and systems with a smaller ecological footprint (e.g. in value chain) Collaborative Production Business Model represents a business strategy that combines the process of dematerialization (crucial in developing economies) with innovative disruptive products and services Disruptive Business Model employs social criteria as key components in determining stakeholder relationships and engagement and in influencing consumer habits Societal Business Model facilitates the multi-functional and simultaneous use of products and services to better meet consumer demands and create additional business value Multi-Functional Product & Service Business Model a relatively new concept. A number of innovative business ventures and business models are emerging, such as collaborative work spaces, book swapping, carpooling, bike sharing, peer-to-peer renting Collaborative Consumption Business Model characterized by the integration of technical products and services in the life cycle.

hotspots: One Planet Living uses ecological footprints as key indicator of sustainability. It promotes the idea that living sustainably should involve better quality of life

The One Planet Living approach and the ten principles framework are simple ways to plan, deliver, communicate, and mainstream sustainable development and the green economy (WWWF, 2013; BioRegional, 2013) One planet living: http://www.bioregional.com/oneplanetliving/what-is-one-planet-living/ Since November 2010 Unilever commits its operations to a ten years journey towards sustainable growth

Beliefs & Identity
Self- efficacy shows the factors which influence the human behaviour. When some of these factors of influence change the overall environment changes as well. Mobility Collaborative transportation systems Nutrition & Food Housing Use of energy Local food (e.g. local farm, rooftop farming, etc..) Providing Affordable Urban housing
Tackling Inefficient housing through eco-design Renewable resources & energy
Energy efficiency & resource management
New efficient Infrastructure Some results from the SPREAD project were scenarios of sustainable lifestyles in the year 2050. These visions were based on an ongoing public discussion in a people’s forum and an online community. Thus the public structures of analysis and interactive assessment of existing promising practices of sustainable living, moving, consuming and healthy life were taken into account. Step a: Select applicable sustainable living hotspot categories
Step b: Select specific hotspots within the hotspot categories applicable to the region or stakeholder (group) under investigation Sustainable living hotspots can be categorized in many different ways

It depends on your application level (macro, meso or micro), your geographic region and preferences of stakeholders involved (e.g. entrepreneurs, multinational corporations, financial institutions) Defining the business models... Nine building blocks of business models cover the four main areas of a business:

Financial viability Personal motivation Sustainability drivers Customer demand Resource efficiency
-> save costs Innovation Regulations, environmental pressure and pushing suppliers Expand your customer markets and increase eco-consciousness of customers Motivate your employees within an environmentally responsible working culture React on volatile fuel prices, disruptive supply of raw material futures Identify internal and external stakeholders' Scaling-up Communicate the vision (in contrast to green-washing) Understand that sustainable business model are not linear Missing access to information on sustainable business practices Sustainable

The products are based on the work of Stanford University. It offers solar-powered LED-based portable home lighting systems (MightyLight).

Cosmos Ignite provides the foundations for the developing world to leapfrog to the next generation of lighting, which is even more efficient than incandescent lighting, while avoiding the pitfalls of dangerous mercury vapour in fluorescent light sources. MightyLight systems are used in India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kenya, Nigeria, Guatemala, Panama and many other regions with almost 100,000 people being impacted (2008). Ouro Verde Amazonia was founded in 2002 produces and sells products made from the Brazil nut while promoting sustainable land use. Ouro Verde provides an alternative to the common notion that high impact lumber exploitation and deforestation are the best economically viable use of the land.

Brazil nuts are collected from the forest floor – trees are not cut down to harvest the nuts. Only a small fraction of the Brazil nuts are collected, leaving seeds for the Brazil tree to propagate. About 1.3 million hectares of rain forest are sustainably managed by Ouro Verde supplier partners. The Brazil nuts are sustainably harvested by local community members who sell directly to Ouro Verde and receive fair prices for the nuts since middle men have been eliminated. http://www.ouroverdeamazonia.com.br/ AdVinylize was founded in 2007 with the aim to create sustainable promotional products from discarded advertising materials. Billboard vinyl commonly used for outdoor advertisements is repurposed into durable, high-quality goods (e.g. totes, wallets, coolers, beach slings and messenger bags) that are both highly useful and provide an option to keep the material from landfills.

Despite this success in scaling-up impacts, AdVinylize remained so far a small company with just one employee. It plans to continue expanding geographically by targeting advertising agencies and their clients in Southern California and Arizona. http://advinylize.com/ CEMEX is a Mexican global building materials company. It produces cement, ready-mix concrete and related building materials in more than 50 countries. Since 1998 the CEMEX Patrimonio Hoy program seeks to make housing affordable for low-income Mexicans. The program provides customers with access to credit as well as advice on building techniques (since most low income customers in Mexico build or expand their homes themselves).

Since the beginning of the program, it has provided affordable housing solutions to more than 350,000 families in Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The program’s international expansion was fueled by a partial credit guarantee of up to $10 million from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in 2011. It is estimated that by 2016, more than 750,000 low-income families in Latin America will be beneficiaries of Patrimonio Hoy. Roughly 2.5 billion people across the world do not have access to dignified sanitation. This leads to water contamination – a primary cause of typhoid, diarrhea and other intestinal diseases. Moreover, much of agricultural production in the developing countries is dependent upon imported chemical fertilizers rather than natural local fertilizers.

Peepoole addresses both of these problems with the offer of single-use, self-sanitizing and fully biodegradable toilets which are rendered harmless in two to four weeks and can be used as a natural fertilizer. The Peepoos are distributed through kiosks and local micro-entrepreneurs. A refund is given for each used Peepoo brought back to the collection points. In addition, Peepoos can be used as an emergency solution in humanitarian response missions and refugee camps. http://www.peepoople.com http://www.cemexmexico.com/DesarrolloSustentables/PatrimonioHoy.aspx Opower (Positive Energy until 2009) is a private company founded in 2007. It partners with utility providers to promote energy efficiency through home energy reports for utility customers developed with Opower’s software. This software analyzes the usage of energy and offers recommendations on energy saving by making small changes in energy consumption. Through this service Opower helps to protect the environment, boosts energy security, saves money for utility customers and influences their energy consumption behavior.

The company received a number of high-profile awards and endorsements, including the Global Tech Pioneer 2010 of the World Economic Forum and the Green Jobs Award 2010. Its services were praised by the US President Obama who said that the company’s growth is “a model of what we want to be seeing all across the country.” http://opower.com http://www.ecf-center.de/en/ Costs Value Added value:

Recommended scaling-up strategies: Organic growth, partnerships, franchising, social franchising How to use the Spider Web tool Case study: BioVeg Secondary hotspot Secondary hotspot Scaling-up lead to use smarter, more efficient methods and tools to achieve the desired outcome This is a bottom-up framework starting at the inner layer with "Sustainable living".
Each of the 4 layers provides an introduction to the concept, some opportunities and challenges, a "how to"-guide, and practical examples.

The CAP-Markt concept was invented and implemented by GDW SÜD (Genossenschaft der Werkstätten für behinderte Menschen eG), a charitable cooperative providing employment for disabled people (handiCAPped). Since the founding date in 1999, the number of CAP-Märkte shops has been growing steadily and reached 90 shops in 2011. They provide employment to 1,200 people of which 700 are disabled.

Up-scaling was achieved by using the social franchising scheme: Each franchisee pays GDW SÜD a fee for the franchise, as well as 0.6% of turnover. No specific financial package is offered to franchisees. However, the fact that CAP-Märkte emerged as an established brand with a proven concept increases investor confidence. Case study: CAP-Märkte
Scaling-up beyond organizational boundaries Essilor International’s project to provide glasses to the bottom of the pyramid (BOP). Visual impairment is not only a health (or discomfort issue) but it also has economic, educational and public safety implications. Essilor entered the BOP market in India in 1998, selling their glasses only through optical shops in urban centres. Therefore 70 percent of India’s rural population did not have access to Essilor’s products or services, whereas addressing rural poors could not only contribute to Essilor’s growth but also allowed to sacle-up the impact.

In 2005 Essilor teamed up with two Indian eye hospitals (Aravind and Sankara Nethralaya) to launch a new project – a tele-ophthalmology van and a refraction van visiting rural communities to provide eye care and distribute glasses. This project expansion turned out to be a commercial success up-scaling impact potentials considerably. Case study: Essilor
Functional scaling-up through vertical integration WeGreen enables a dialogue between consumers and corporations. Users of the online platform can rate the sustainability of companies and the companies can reply to those evaluations.

WeGreen collects all substantial, factual and credible ratings of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of companies in Germany. Thereby, both consumers and producers are enabled to make more sustainable choices and to substitute one product for another. Case study: WeGreen
Scaling-up by product substitution The companies organized in the Repair Network Vienna offer mobile maintenance and repair stations for consumer goods.

Different repair and service companies collaborate to make repair services more attractive. The aim is to improve the competitiveness of repaired goods in relation to new bought goods. As a result, higher resource efficiency and reduction of waste can be achieved. Case study: Repair Network Vienna
Scaling-up by using longer WaterHealth International is a US-based for-profit social-purpose venture. It installs UV Waterworks (UVW) technology for disinfecting water with the help of ultraviolet light in the so-called Water Health Centres (WHCs) in villages in developing countries.

To scale-up the number of WHCs, Water Health International was actively reaching out to potential investors and succeeded in raising capital from multiple financial sources, including banks, venture capital firms, local governments and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). With this funding the company installed over 600 WHCs in many countries around the world, including India, the Philippines, and Ghana providing clean water to more than one million people (2009).
