"While initial hopes were high, two decades later humanity is still living well beyond the means of the planet," says Mark Lee, Executive Director of SustainAbility and Co-Director of The Regeneration Roadmap. Speaking in a video, he is followed by the initiative's other Co-Director and President of GlobeScan, Chris Coulter: "There is a growing consensus that we all need to work together to find ways to meet the needs of humanity today, without compromising the livelihoods of future generations." [1]

The video is one in a series called Ray Anderson Memorial Interviews, as part of The Regeneration Roadmap initiative. Sharing their experiences and insights on sustainable development, are the Pioneers, such as Gro Harlem Brundtland, Vandana Shiva, and David Suzuki, to name a few. Aside from video interviews, the project provides what SustainAbility and GlobeScan do well: research, analysis and insights into sustainable development issues and potential solutions.

What is The Regeneration Roadmap?

A collaborative project, The Regeneration Roadmap "aims to provide a way forward for achieving sustainable development within the next generation..." In particular, the initiative focuses on enabling the private sector to "improve sustainability strategy, increase credibility and deliver results at greater speed and scale." [2] To create a roadmap for business, the project not only assesses progress made thus far, but also looks to the future. This is done through two influencer surveys, and two quantitative public opinion surveys, across more than 20 countries.
