Sustainable Business Practices: How Entrepreneurs Can Make a Positive Impact
DigitalJournal.com, May 28, 2023, Press Release
Consumers are becoming more eco-friendly and driven by a need to know they are making a difference with every purchase.
From the food they eat, the clothes they wear, and even the services they use, customers now demand transparency on how they can make less environmental impact and cause less damage to the planet.
But how does this translate to integration in your business? And how can you guarantee you are making a positive impact and running a sustainable company, product or service to your customer?
“Entrepreneurs are finding that adopting sustainable business practices not only benefits the environment but also their bottom line,” says Santiago Vicaria, Senior Vice President for Ontop. In a legal and easy way, the digital platform has revolutionized how companies hire and pay international workers.
Santiago’s exemplary skills as an entrepreneur have supported the company to raise more than $35 million USD in venture capital funding.
He says: “I’m a true believer that startups create value for a lot of people, not just to the founders, but also for those who work for them and use them. This doesn’t just have to apply to the compensation and the exponential growth and support they can provide. They can also be sustainable and eco-friendly in a number of ways.”
Vicaria has worked with multiple aspiring business owners and entrepreneurs to aid them in their bid to create profitable businesses.
As a member of the exclusive CESA Alumni Association, he has had the opportunity to coach hundreds of individuals and was awarded the ‘Best Mentor’ accolade for his exemplary expertise.
Moreover, Angel has been able to assist businesses in raising over 100 million dollars in venture capital.
He says there are a number of ways entrepreneurs can make a positive impact through running a sustainable business.
“Energy efficiency is of course a great way to improve your sustainability if you have an office or location,” Santiago says.
“Of course, if you have a remote team, you are already one step ahead! But by reducing your company’s carbon footprint and implementing energy-efficient practices such as using LED lighting, energy-efficient appliances, and renewable energy sources like solar or wind, it gives you the scope to not only help save the environment but also lower the cost of energy bills.”
He also highlights reducing waste as another way to implement sustainable business practices: “Recycling, reusing, and repurposing materials can all help,” Santiago adds.
