As we embark on the new year, there is a lot of talk about a “Green New Deal.” At Fifty by Fifty, we are all for policies that bring our economy into alignment with the needs of our planet. We’ve spent much of the last year exploring the relationship of employee ownership to sustainability, and we believe our hypothesis — that ownership design matters to a sustainable future — is borne out by the data we’ve been collecting.
If you haven’t been following our series on the future of our planet, check it out, particularly our newest post: Finding a Path to a Sustainable Economy. This interview with Carina Millstone offers an insightful critique of the publicly held corporation and why this form of ownership is a barrier to building an economy that functions within planetary limits.
Also, if you missed our preliminary report on our research findings, take a look at Next Generation Enterprise Design: The Employee-Owned Benefit Corporation. Our research suggests that employee owners are the best stewards of environmental mission.
