Tell us a little about your background.
Im a Regulatory Compliance Coordinator at 3E. We focus on creating sustainability through compliance and the ever changing data we acquire. I began focusing on sustainability when I began to see the change in our world’s view of Social and Environmental policies. Climate change and environmental responsibility go hand in hand and I believe there was a “Sleeping Giant” market that I could work hard and create results for generations to come.
What would you do with $1 billion dollars?
I would invest most of that money into index funds, and start up’s that need my help. The rest of the money would go to build housing and safe drinking water stations in 3rd world countries.
Why do you think sustainability is such an important topic today?
Sustainability stands as a beacon of hope in the face of escalating environmental challenges. The planet is confronting unprecedented levels of climate change, habitat destruction, and resource depletion. By embracing sustainable practices, we acknowledge our responsibility to safeguard the Earth’s fragile ecosystems for current and future generations. This shift towards renewable energy, responsible consumption, and conservation efforts is paramount in curbing the devastating impacts of human activities on our planet. Moreover, sustainability transcends environmental concerns; it intertwines with social equity and economic stability. By promoting fair resource allocation and reducing disparities, sustainable practices pave the way for a more inclusive and just society, where individuals of all backgrounds can thrive. In addition to its pivotal role in environmental preservation, sustainability is a cornerstone of economic resilience. Industries that adopt sustainable practices not only reduce their environmental footprint but also insulate themselves from the volatility of resource shortages and environmental crises. The global shift towards sustainable technologies and practices also stimulates innovation, leading to the development of new industries and job opportunities. Moreover, as consumers become increasingly conscious of the impact of their choices, businesses that prioritize sustainability are better positioned to meet evolving market demands and build enduring trust with their customers. Embracing sustainability today is not merely a choice; it is an imperative for fostering a prosperous, equitable, and resilient future for humanity and the planet we call home.
What do you envision your industry looking like in ten years?
I believe there will be a renewable energy dominance. The transition from fossil fuels to solar, wind and hydroelectric will become an industry leader for careers. One of those sectors that is changing right before our eyes in the transportation market. Electric vehicles are becoming not only a trend but a necessity. With the rising cost of fuel & California’s new law for 2035, EV’s are selling higher than ever. Agriculture will embrace regenerative practices that focus on soil health, biodiversity, and carbon sequestration. Plant-based and alternative protein sources will continue to gain popularity. Communities will implement more sophisticated waste management systems, emphasizing recycling, composting, and reducing single-use plastics. The “zero waste” concept may become more prevalent. These are a few of the many changes that I for see in 10 years. Change has already begun and will rise exponentially in the coming years.
