The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the rethinking what it means to be human and our relationship with the Earth.


The principles of the new economy were systemic, Earth‐centric and directly addressed a range of issues facing life on Earth: climate change, population, resource use, the global commons, governance, management and education.


In order to revisit the world and therefore co‐create a new future we need to adopt clear principles.


The paper argues that “CSR is dead” and at the same time say: “long live the sustainable enterprise economy”.
