The Net Positive Project, a coalition of companies that aim to go beyond reducing their negative sustainability impacts to contribute in a “net positive” way to society, the environment and the global economy, launched yesterday.

“With the recent adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the ratification of the Paris agreement on climate change, the need for net positive approaches is more urgent than ever,” said BSR senior vice president Eric Olson in a statement announcing the project. “Business has a clear mandate to create sustainable technologies, products, and services that can help the world meet these goals.”

Founding company members are: Advanced Micro Devices, AT&T, Capgemini UK, The Crown Estate, Dell, Dow Chemical, Eaton, Fetzer Vineyards, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, Humanscale, Kimberly-Clark, Kingfisher, Kohler and Owens Corning.
