Regenerative Society Foundation
The Regenerative Society Foundation is a participatory foundation born in September 2020 to promote a new regenerative socio-economic model with the objective of generating environmental and social benefits. This model could be developed through the decarbonization, the circularity of the supply chains and the revitalization of the natural capital.
To achive this objective, the foundation adopts an ethical and systemic approach based on the “one health” concept that relies on scientific knowledge.

The Foundation provides companies and organizations the following services: management and organization of knowledge & education, metrics and measurement, advisory for the development of projects, public and private partnership and communications activities.
Their work is addressed by a multidisciplinary Scientific Committee that plays a fundamental role in the validation of the Foundation scientific model, in the development of a research plan on regeneration and the evaluation of the regenerative projects with the highest potential.
