Global responsibility begins with us.

The Regensburg Sustainability Week 2022 took place from June 27 to July 03, under the motto “17 goals. Our future”. The aim of this week is to promote sustainability awareness in all dimensions. More than 120 events throughout the city stimulate reflection, make examples of commitment visible and show how each individual can make a contribution to sustainable development within the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Founder Christian Felber represented the Economy for the Common Good (ECG) during his lecture “The Economy for the Common Good: Rethinking the Economy”. He introduced ECG as an alternative economic model and presented the ideas upon which the movement is based: “Our economic system is upside down. Money has become an end in itself instead of being a means to what really matters: a good life for everyone”. After the lecture, Christian Felber and Prof. Dr. Georg Stephan Barfuss, Economics, Science and Finance Advisor for the City of Regensburg , opened a space for discussion.

The ECG aims to establish an ethical, environmentally sustainable and socially just economic system and takes a holistic view of all corporate practices that contribute to the SDGs. The core instrument of the ECG model is the Common Good Balance Sheet (CGBS), which can be used both for ethical organisational development and as a sustainability reporting framework. This makes a company’s contribution to the common good visible and measurable. At least one SDG is addressed within each Common Good theme. The CGBS is an exemplary instrument for aligning the practices of a company with the SDGs, as it meets their requirements in terms of integrity, ambition, interdependence and transparency.
