Giving Compass’ Take:
• Writing for TriplePundit, Alegria Partners founder Nikki Pava discusses the importance of sustainable businesses and how she’s able to think positively about the environment, despite current obstacles.
• Are we trending in the right direction when it comes to creating better corporate models? There are examples cited here on how bottom-up development can thrive.
When someone asks me, “are you feeling depressed about the current state of our environmental situation?” I share about how wolves are an integral part of nature and trust that their contributions will continue to serve the planet. I share about the many businesses that are developing thriving initiatives that will help to decrease their resource use. I share that these initiatives are not only stemming from grassroots groups of employees, but also from high-level managers who understand that the bottom-line is about more than just profit and are making decisions as ecosystem leaders that benefit all members of their community.
While there are still many obstacles facing the convergence of business and the environment, knowing that there are many smart, motivated people who are in action and striving toward positive change helps me to stay optimistic about our future.
