Intemerate Accounting is a sustainability and resilience program measuring wellbeing and our ecological biodiversity.
Expressed as an equation, intemerate accounting provides a tangible pathway for local, indigenous, and customary methodologies to integrate with national accounting systems.
Intemerate means pure, sacred, sacrosanct. Intemerate accounting measures how we account for our ecological biodiversity and how to value those interactions.
Rather than assigning values to natural capital as other ecological accounting programs, the intemerate equation measures restoration and revitalization to attain a fair, just, and equitable economy. Our local interactions with the environment must provide a greater collective value than the private ownership of commodities and natural capital schemes managed by investment regimes.
Ecological biodiversity is sacrosanct. How do we assign a monetary value to that which provides our existence? Commodity values are for markets, not our existence. Shifting national economic indicators to value the data on our environmental and social interactions is the most sensible route for reversing climate change, restoring our ecological biodiversity, and redistributing global wealth.
Our mission is simple: we seek to bring ecological accounting into the global justice movement.
