Triple Bottom-Line Ideation - Developing Innovative & Sustainable Solutions for People, Planet and Profits
Social Media

New & Improved's Triple Bottom-line Facilitated Ideation for Conscious Impact & Sustainability is designed to generate new insights and diversity of thought that are beneficial for all. 

Our creative processes serve the needs of teams, organizations and individual entrepreneurs in developing business solutions, visioning, branding, positioning, developing new product and service concepts and resolving team issues in:

  • Achieving a better balance between the realities of market pressures and the desire for sustainability
  • Initiating or strengthening on-going corporate sustainability enterprises
  • Increasing alternative energy sources and carbon neutral programs
  • Developing green products, internal processes, architecture, etc.
  • Improving the quality of food production / nutrition
  • Enhancing environmental awareness and protection skills / processes
  • Supporting social entrepreneurial endeavors
  • Developing science-based mind-body-spirit wellness programs
  • Enhancing outdoor adventure / eco-travel businesses
  • Inspiring and developing conscious capitalism enterprises
  • And, whatever other areas of conscious impact you may be working in…

One of the most efficient ways to gain these benefits is to engage people whose creative ways aren’t bound by the same rules, assumptions and restrictions as most people, and who bring a passion and expertise specific to your sustainability endeavors.

Choreographing the right mix of team members is essential. That’s why New & Improved recruits industry and sustainability experts who will be the most stimulating for your team’s creative juices. Our Conscious Creatives are available in the New York, Atlanta, Minneapolis and San Francisco areas, or in any other locale that serves your needs.

And, if you’d like to get great thinking from the end-users in your value chain, our Conscious Consumers are what you need for Triple Bottom-line input and stimulation. Our strong network of creative thinkers with a conscious consupmtion lifestyle is ready to help.

Transition: Resilience and Hope in Extraordinary Times

Resilience thinking means decentralizing our basic systems - food, energy, and water. It’s backup against the inevitable failure of centralized, too-big-NOT-to-fail systems. At this point in history it is imperative to overcome the nemesis of resilience - the hyper-individualism of America’s consumer culture - and rebuild a strong social fabric. The goal of “Transition U.S.” is to connect and support neighborhoods, towns, and cities to become more sustainable and self-reliant – together. Let’s grow flourishing, locally-scaled, green economies and step into a future that nourishes both people and planet.
