The Fair Finance Institute supports companies, associations, municipalities and other organisations in transformation processes. The focus is on orientation towards sustainability, mostly in the context of financial flows. However, all aspects are taken into account that ultimately enable a viable and stable reorientation.
Everything important at a glance
A more sustainable financial system requires institutions that align their business goals and processes with new social and environmental criteria. For many organisations, this means a reorientation. This reorientation, also in financial issues, is in most cases a cross-cutting task that affects many people and internal processes from the management level down to individual departments. A new mission statement, new goals, new processes and new qualifications are needed.
The Fair Finance Institute helps institutions with these transformations by providing process support. In most cases, a participatory approach is followed, which allows large parts of the organisation to be involved from the outset. However, the concrete steps required depend on the new goals, the organisational culture, the time frame and the available time and financial budget. The methodological basis is, among others, Theme-Centred Interaction (TCI).

EXAMPLE MUNICIPAL SUSTAINABILITY PROCESS
Markus Duscha has, still at his previous place of work, the ifeu – Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, accompanied many transformational model projects in municipalities. The aim was to align activities in and by municipalities and their citizens more closely with ecological and social criteria. 20 years ago often conducted under the term “Local Agenda 21”, today these processes are often found under the heading “globally sustainable town” or “SDG municipality”.
Markus Duscha used some of the experience he gained in these transformation processes between 1999 and 2011 in a research project for the Ministry of the Environment of the State of Baden-Württemberg, among other things. The final report on this research report, which was produced jointly with the Environmental Research Institute Tübingen (ufit), can be found here (PDF download, 870 KB, German).
