Beneficial Economics, Nurturing Circular Relationships

Connecticut, United States

As a writer, instructor, moderator, long-time community volunteer, and Certified Treasury Professional, Scott has spent much of his career serving the payments and liquidity needs of internationally and locally-focused companies, from small businesses to multinationals.

Scott is especially keen to help build bridges among regenerative enterprises and their partners. The aim is to create robust, circular, and enduring commercial relationships in a concept of a Circle of Responsibility – what EarthWork calls a CoRe. This CoRe surrounds and connects a company and its employees, suppliers, customers, partners, community, and planet together in a virtuous bond is sensible, logical, predictable, and likely more profitable too for most companies.

Focusing on maximizing value and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions, negative impacts on the planet, and waste also tends to deliver outcomes that are best not just for society but wildlife as well in the bargain. Scott is convinced that the most prosperous enterprises of the present and future will be marked by mutually beneficial economics and environmentally and socially-nurturing relationships.

A co-founder of EarthWork Collective and contributor to The Carbon Almanac, Scott ‘gets’ the huge responsibility that businesses have in every community and across the globe. Now more than ever, the individuals who lead and work in organizations of all sizes must emphasize positive environmental and social results from their operations and investments. They should also be encouraged to promote these same practices to their customers.

“Each problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful that it literally dwarfs the problem. The greatest success stories were created by people who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity.”
