Rethinking our future

Our extractive economies are reaching ‘end of life’, exhausting the natural resources and systems they and we depend on.

We need to rethink our economy if we want to reverse this trajectory and rewrite our future.

Established by His Majesty King Charles III, the CBA is a unique, diverse, multi-stakeholder platform. We aim to accelerate the transition to a nature-first economy that is both powered by nature and prospers in harmony with it.

"<em>There is no future for business as usual. We urgently need to restore balance and put nature back at the centre of our economy</em>."

Living Labs

The CBA works with scientists, indigenous communities, corporates and local governments to develop Living Labs. These are pilots of nature-first economies, using sustainable value chains to holistically regenerate landscapes and power prosperity in the local community.

This 10-year community-based project in Atebubu, Ghana aims to foster both ecological and community resilience.

Connecting the dots

We deliver transformative impact at scale through:

Activating and demonstrating: creating scalable ‘proof of concept’ through a global network of Living Labs that blend science, technology and indigenous knowledge to holistically regenerate landscapes, support communities and rethink value chains.

Advancing and sharing knowledge: scaling learning-to-action by supporting research, communication and capacity building through leading experts, rigorous scientific frameworks and data and inclusive programmes.

Connecting and facilitating: developing targeted global-to-local partnerships, to advocate for and advance global efforts through a diverse network of leading scientists, pioneering corporations, indigenous communities, campaigning organisations and public institutions, spearheaded by King Charles III.
