Dehradun, February 3, 2021: “Conscious Ventures – Business With Higher Purpose”, a new collaborative project to bring conscious thinking and decision-making culture and values [based on the ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) Framework] for new-age sustainable business models and start-ups, has been launched with a highly passionate team of professionals from India, USA, Africa, South Asia and the UAE.
The core purpose of the venture is to collectively meet new challenges the world is facing today with emerging opportunities, sustainable and responsible business start-ups and new impact-driven investments to strengthen the Atamnirbhar Bharat campaign.
“Conscious Ventures is an innovating and collaborative platform of domain experts and passionate professionals with primary objectives to elevate ethical and benevolent business culture in the domain of education, health, technologies, training, waste management and clean energy and contribute towards climate change, fair-trade practices, driving social, cultural and gender inequality, governance, etc., with ESG integration,” informed Dr Anil Jaggi, Founder and CEO of Conscious Ventures.
“Even in our business and professional space, we need to address our connect to ourselves and to our surroundings. Humanity and its health, happiness and well-being are the products of conscious consensus of human values in all dimensions of humanity including cultures, religion, science, and business, so the mission of Conscious Ventures will surely help society at large,” said Dr Mahesh Bhatt, Surgeon, Speaker and author of Science and Spirituality.
“Working on purely a partnership model with likeminded organisations, Conscious Ventures will focus on innovation and community-centric business proposals and investments with capacity building of our partners and potential clients,” said Dr Sathyanaryan, Advisory Group member.
“As the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has asked to slash carbon emissions by 45 per cent by 2030 and completely de-carbonise by 2050 or risk climate catastrophe. To avoid world temperatures rise above the critical threshold of 1.5 degree Celsius, it is essentially important not only for our political leadership but also for business houses and multinational companies to collaborate and cooperate for social and economic sustainability,” said Dr TV Muralivallabhan, Advisory Group member and an expert in sustainability and eco-spirituality.
“As India has become the hub for new-age start-ups, especially in the technology and energy front, hence we will work jointly to support new start-ups and attract impact investors (VCs) with our global partners and through our proposed Impact Academy,” mentioned Silvio Pupo Casco, Advisory Group member and CEO – Logos Capital, Florida, USA.
With our expertise to study the impact of businesses, we can extend our domain knowledge and experience to educate Indian companies and citizens on “Conscious Consumerism”, said Maria Sillanpaa, CEO Sustainability Advisory, Dubai/UAE.
“It is very important to launch such initiatives which are going to help businesses to grow with a global perspective in small countries like Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka,” said Pradeep Vaidya, MD of a leading pharma group in Nepal.
“Missions like Conscious Ventures will not only sensitise business leadership on collective consciousness but also engage other stakeholders from the government, NGOs, Academia, Civil Society organisations and media as it is time to work together to recover better (post-COVID-19),” said Dr Vivek Agarwal, leading Waste Management Expert and Founder – CDC, Jaipur.
