The Conscious Company Glossary

Extracative

Tending to withdraw resources with no provision for replenishing them. Examples include removing groundwater for agricultural or manufacturing use at a faster rate than that at which the aquifer recharges, or not allowing for adequate rest when scheduling employee work hours. The term can apply to business models or even whole economies, and is a major element of what conscious companies seek to avoid.
