In a recent fireside chat hosted by Gramener’s Sundeep Reddy Mallu, the CEO, and Co-founder of Regenerative Intel, Chad Frischmann explained the issues on global sustainability targets and the need for regenerative solutions. 

First, what are Regenerative Solutions? 

Regenerative solutions are a holistic approach to addressing climate change by simultaneously tackling interconnected issues such as food security, public health, ecosystem preservation, and livelihood improvement. 

This approach involves implementing regenerative agricultural practices to restore soil productivity and hidden carbon, adopting resource-efficient plant-based diets, and reducing food loss and waste. 

These solutions can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce enough food to feed the world’s growing population without expanding into forests for farmland. 

This regenerative approach underscores the concept of cascading benefits, where solutions to climate change align with solutions to broader societal challenges, leading to a more equitable and sustainable future for all. 

It emphasizes the need for collaboration and partnership across various sectors to implement these solutions at a global scale, thereby realizing the vision of a Regenerative Future that prioritizes both environmental health and human well-being. 

Navigating Climate Targets and Regenerative Solutions 

The discussion started with Sundeep asking about the possibility of meeting the global target of limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius by the year 2100. Chad emphasized the significance of this target in averting catastrophic climate and biodiversity events along with setting ambitious goals for organizations beyond numerical targets. 

“Instead of focusing on the precise degree, we should name where we want to be in 2100,” Chad said. The idea is to have a regenerative future that prioritizes human and planetary well-being. 

Talking about implementing regenerative solutions across various sectors, he gave examples of regenerative agriculture and renewable energy systems, stressing the need to scale these solutions for widespread impact. 

Chad stresses the importance of a systemic approach, where organizations adopt a regenerative mindset and implement diverse solutions to address interconnected challenges. 

When discussing the role of Regenerative Intel in driving change, Chad talked about the company’s focus on providing advisory services tailored to the unique needs of organizations. 

By guiding them towards implementing the right set of solutions, Regenerative Intel aims to enable organizations towards a sustainable future. This could be achieved with education and community-building to activate humanity to become a planet-positive species. 

In response to queries on career opportunities in climate action, Chad is optimist because of the growing climate solutions economy. He believes the current climate crisis is not only a problem to be fixed but also an opportunity for innovation and transformation, which will require skills and technology. He advised individuals to acquire the skills and mindset required to contribute meaningfully to the climate solutions economy and participate in shaping a regenerative economy. 

This fireside chat offered invaluable insights into the urgency of addressing global sustainability challenges and the potential for regenerative solutions to drive positive change.
