As a Co-Founder and Senior Director of the Reporting 3.0 Platform (R3), Bill Baue designs Blueprints in Reporting, Accounting, Data, and New Business Models that gather “Positive Maverick” Working Groups to vet Recommendations on next-generation practices that companies pilot (in the Beta Testing Program) to create off-the-shelf solutions. R3’s theory of change is that disclosure can serve as a fulcrum for leveraging transformations at the micro- (company & community) level, meso- (industry, portfolio, and habitat) level, and macro- (economic, ecological, and social systems) level. R3’s end-goal is to spur the emergence of a regenerative and distributive global economy.
