Meet Sebastian Cadell, COO & Partner at Nosco, one of the driving forces behind the Nosco Platform’s strategic development.

This is how Sebastian summarized the principles of the Nosco platform in an almost poetic way:
“Silos mean that the eyes and ears are no longer connected to the decision making power and the brains. Therefore, our platform’s core principle is to help remove silos. It’s about flattening the hierarchies, reducing the distance between idea and decision making and improving the ability to execute on that idea.”

A sustainable company seeks merely to reduce its ecological footprint; a regenerative company boldly seeks to increase its socio-ecological handprint—as Harvard professor Greg Norris puts it—by restoring the health of individuals, communities, and the planet.

In doing so, regenerative businesses can achieve greater financial performance and impact than their sustainability-focused peers.

Innovation in general is not easy, but succeeding at sustainability-oriented innovation requires even stronger innovation capabilities in several areas.

Sustainnovation360 is a unique new innovation-assessment tool by Innovation 360 Group AB that drills down to the specific innovation capabilities needed to yield sustainability benefits. It tests for what benefits have already been realized, which barriers still stand in the way, and where a company is on its overall journey to become a true agent of change in the area of sustainability innovation.
