The Centre for Integral Economics is a registered
Canadian charity that works to promote innovative, market-based
solutions that reconcile economic prosperity, social justice
and environmental integrity.
We look for ways to use the power of market tools and economic
policies, to redirect human activities and to create a less
wasteful, more balanced society. We specialize in building
tools, partnerships and communications for change.
Early on in our work, we recognized the power and potential
of economic instruments to transform the fundamental direction
and structure of our society, and the important role the Centre
for Integral Economics could play as a non-profit, charitable
organization committed to that vision. Since theories, however
intuitive and compelling, do not change people's lives, the
Centre for Integral Economics looks for genuine opportunities
to redirect the power of markets toward positive outcomes.
We help build examples of sustainability that can be adapted
