The Sustainable Business Model Design - Toolkit is an 8-step process for developing sustainable product and service concepts with a basic business model. It is aimed to creators, who want to create impactful sustainable projects. It was developed by the Green Future Club director, Nils Bader in cooperation with the German Institute for Sustainability- and Quality management. and has been successively developed since then.

Presentation/Pitch deck
Presenting a concept to the public to collaborators, partners, supporters or investors is pretty different from documenting the design process. That is why we have developed a separate presentation guideline that provides guidance on how to integrate, modify and supplement the toolkit's documentation.
