Sustainability and ethical practices have been synonymous with the Volvo brand. “Safety is in the genes of Volvo,” explained Gu. At the heart of the automotive company is the philosophy that cars are made for people. And as a result, the concept of safety has been broadened to include allowing people “the freedom to move in a personal, safe and sustainable way. Personal is about protecting livings, sustainable is about protecting life and safety is about protecting lives. That is the new vision for Volvo.”

Earth Heir, meanwhile, was founded to serve traditional artisans in underserved communities and in doing so, facilitate economic development for those communities. The hope for the social enterprise is that the artisans grow to be independent, be upskilled and develop sustainable livelihoods. 

Jesrina Arshad

CEO and co-founder of PurelyB

At Purely B, the mission is clear. It is to promote healthy, sustainable living through education. “That’s why we created Purely B,” said Jesrina. “There was a lack of education from an objective standpoint. We cover a lot of these topics like clean eating and a zero waste lifestyle in ways that are relevant and easy to adapt. A lot of people think it is not easy to make such changes but our content is created to let people know that it can be done.” Through adopting these practices, she added, sustainable living is something that can be achieved.
