In our new ESCP impact paper (Lüdeke-Freund & Froese, 2020) we argue that sustainability paradigms such as degrowth offer an inspiration for a post-crisis economy. There is increasing demand from politicians, civil society and industry for programmes that do not just protect and revive business as usual, ‘whatever it takes,’ but provide new ideas to motivate more ecological, social, and resilient businesses. Business model innovation and business model patterns, combined with sustainability paradigms such as degrowth, are introduced as promising contributions to a toolbox for a post-crisis economy.
