To be considered truly sustainable or green, a business should have minimal negative impact on not only the local but global environment and also contribute positively at a societal and economic level.
In Scotland we see new ventures with sustainability built into their ethos. Cultural core values that are purpose driven within the business structure are evident from their outset.
As we build a future that is more sustainable, businesses focus on developing better products utilizing local natural resources or recycling existing materials with a circular economy approach. Extending the life cycle of materials or repurposing can help reduce waste. We bring together those who are actively involved in creating” good” products that are either better for people or better for the planet.
In this episode we meet 3 business founders who are looking to the sustainable future:
Jane Langley, Founder, Blue Patch
Scott Dickson, Founder, Phox Water
Isabella Guerrini de Claire, Co-Founder, Green Grow Foods
