About us


The Regenerative Society Foundation is an Italian non-profit, participatory foundation born in September 2020.

We adopt a systemic approach to better understand and manage complex systems like environment, climate, society, nutrition, health, lifestyle, etc. and their mutual interactions.

The foundation is a business-driven organization, based on the synergy between business and science, to develop the transition to a fully regenerative society.


Our founders’ committee is made up of international founders and board members, who came together to form a unique multilateral coalition of global leaders. They represent pioneering companies and organizations in the stakeholder company model, and in an innovative approach to sustainability.

The foundation is co-chaired by Andrea Illy (Chairman, illycaffè & Co-founder, Fondazione Ernesto Illy) and Jeffrey D. Sachs (President, UN SDSN).

Supporters and partners

Several companies and organizations support the foundation from all over the world, as well as public/private partners like some of the most prestigious universities in the scientific and economic fields, governmental, non-governmental and financial institutions, and leading international research centers.


The Scientific Committee is the Foundation’s advisory body, a think tank for the development of the conceptual framework of a regenerative society. It is an independent body with no financial relationship with the founding enterprises or financial entities.
