Enabling the development of
local & resilient businesses
Local businesses are a major enabler for economic development but are seriously under threat.
There is no denying that businesses relie on nature to thrive, one way or another, either directly or indirectly. Investing in nature protection and fight pollution is both beneficial and a competitive advantage over competitors following a business-as-usual.
"Nomad Economy's goal is to support and enable local businesses to become more resilient and responsible by contributing to the effort to end plastic pollution and restore nature.
Because no nature = no business ".
Which kind of businesses are we referring to?
Supporting a sustainable blue economy
Sustainable use of the resources for economic resilience, improved livelihoods, jobs, and ecosystems’ health:
Ocean Conservation as a business driver, including social and environmental benefits
Our oceans are worth at least $24 trillion,
according to a new WWF report Reviving the Ocean Economy: The case for Action
Business case example: Tourism in Indonesia
An amazing ecological heritage and economic potential under threat:
World’s 1st coral reef fish diversity,
18 billion US$ from tourism industry in Indonesia (2019) - 50% growth in 5 years
1.29 million tonnes/year of marine debris in Indonesia (world’s 2nd) with an ambitious commitment to reduce by 70% by 2025
Taka Bonerate, Flores Sea
Tourism under threat
In these beautiful remote and coastal indonesian regions, the economy strongly relies on the tourism industry: resorts, liveaboard, diving and other ocean-related leisures. Needless to say that the recurring plastic pollution is strongly reducing the attractiveness for some regions or forcing authorities to reduce access to tourists or even close down some areas.
Still Taka Bonerate, Flores Sea
The case of Nomad Archipelago:
regenerative liveaboards in Indonesia
Explore with purpose:
This social liveaboard business built the economic traction for our very first project in Labuan Bajo, Indonesia by purchasing fuel produced from low-value plastics collected with local communities. 50% of its profit goes to Marine Protected Areas co-managed by Blue Finance, especially in the Banggai islands where Nomad Archipelago operates new exclusive cruises.
Examples of other business cases
Resorts & Resort Associations
Relying on an outstanding natural ecosystem to be attractive, resorts are impacted by plastics washing onto the shores, dying corals and they also need to manage their waste in rather remote areas. Our Model can help initiate a regenerative shift.
Ports & Fisheries
Needless to say that fishermen rely on healthy seas to thrive. Overfishing, plastic pollution in addition to rising fuel costs are putting their activity in jeopardy. Contributing to our Model can enable launch a more virtuous cycle.
Calling all firms, big and small, to join the effort!
One way or another, we all depend on nature and the Ocean. Now more than ever, our success will be measured with the impact we make, not only economic but also environmental and social. Organizations of tomorrow invest in nature to stay on top and increase their attractiveness.
