The Club of Helsinki begins its project by inviting partners to prototype the overlap between their CSR and business strategies in one of the most demanding urban contexts in the world: Sao Paolo, Brazil. Together with Professor Maria Cecilia Loschiavo dos Santos at Sao Paolo University, The Club of Helsinki will work closely with one specific waste collection community, Coopamare, to design and then test a locally relevant sustainable value chain model. This new partnership platform will add value to the collected waste, and generate incentives and benefits for the community and engaged partners driving the work further along specific project phases and goals. The work with Coopamare commences this August 2012 to frame the needs and goals of the project.
The Club of Helsinki is an umbrella platform and non-profit organisation driving sustainable urban development projects that prototype new business and management models.
We invite enterprise, academia, government, and local communities to participate in scalable projects. We help our corporate partners merge their existing strategies with systems thinking, social entrepreneurship and global insights - in a method we call Applied Corporate Social Integration (CSI).
The Club of Helsinki is founded by design, communications, innovation and business professionals wishing to take their experience and expertise to the next phase of genuine sustainability.
