“I realized that if I was willing to step up and be in the spotlight,
I’d be able to make everyone else around me much more powerful as well.”

What is the Doughnut?

A compass for human prosperity in the 21st century.

It consists of two concentric rings.

A social foundation – to ensure that no one is left falling short on life’s essentials, and an ecological ceiling – to ensure that humanity does not collectively overshoot planetary boundaries.

Between these two boundaries lies a doughnut-shaped space that is both ecologically safe and socially just – a space in which humanity can thrive.

We couldn't imagine a better framework to base the awards on!

Our goal is to start tracking companies within the doughnut and share insights.
