If you are into nature tech, greentech, regenerative economy, product-market fit. This episode is for you.

Is it possible to make economy regenerative? Can we make e-commerce, fintech and other digital sectors more sustainable? And prove it.

Handprint are on a mission to regenerate the planet with the help of digital technology and partnerships. They want to change the narrative and convert our extractive economy to an economy that benefits nature.

They do exactly what it says on the label – they help companies increase their handprint, the sum of their positive impact on the world’s environmental and social ecosystems.

Their platform provides nature credits. A nature credit assigns a value to nature’s services, like that companies are not just reducing their environmental footprint, but they are also helping to regenerate and preserve nature.

The claim that a carbon credit can reduce a company's carbon footprint is extreme. Carbon credits don’t eliminate carbon debt.

Companies must be held accountable not only for their direct environmental impact but also for the impact coming from their influence on other companies.

Net zero makes sense at global level, where you have a limited number of countries. It doesn’t make sense at the economic level where you have an unlimited number of companies, simply you cannot cap them all.
