Our economy should serve human needs. For that, it must not be entirely geared towards economic progress but has to improve social progress and environmental sustainability as well. This is the vision of a recoupled economy: where social, economic and environmental prosperity grow together and not apart. Achieving a recoupled economy requires complementary action in policy and business; a commonality of purpose. This session discusses elements and examples of a recoupled economy. It determines implications for policy-makers and business leaders and how their actions can support and reinforce each other. It will also address specific ways in which our economic system must evolve in order to align policy decisions and business action to achieve a resilient, sustainable recoupled future.
