Sustainability is just beginning to gain traction, and it won’t be long before it completely reshapes business operations. Best practices are leading the way.
Already, major global brands like Bain, Bayer, Cox Enterprise Inc., and Air Liquide are pledging their commitment to sustainable procurement.
Because of the gathering restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, right now, in-person, hands-on consulting opportunities are limited—and at a time when extra help is needed most. Visionary People, looking to make a positive impact, is seeking out ways to work and lend a hand to our clients. So it’s imperative to restructure our business model and pivot to digital in order to meet this demand through virtual management consulting. COVID-19 has created a new paradigm shift that has forced organizational change and human behavior. As horrendous as COVID-19 is, we at VP view the pandemic as mother nature's way of conducting a planetary reset. Hence, through the paradigm shift comes positive change.
As a result, we at Visionary People have redesigned our business model and have transitioned to a sustainable business model by transforming into a predominately virtual consultancy.
"If there's one thing for certain in 2020, it's the fact that it's no longer business as usual," Natalia Latimer, Vice President at Salesforce.
"Now is the time to recommit to company values and broaden the idea of who our stakeholders actually are -- our customers, employees, partners, shareholders, communities, and yes, even the planet."
"Across the world today we are facing a health crisis, an economic crisis, an inequality crisis, a leadership crisis, and a climate crisis," she continues. "Learning how to address any one of them can be paralyzing, never mind all of them. But we all have a platform for change and whether it's big or small, it is our responsibility to act. We need everyone to help drive the change our planet needs at the pace and scale necessary to feel the effects for current and future generations."
"We are already seeing the horrific effects of climate change with the wildfires on the West Coast, the flooding in the south, the burning Arctic and the list goes on," said Latimer. "I experienced for the first time not being able to leave my house for consecutive days due to poor air quality. It really brought to home it was a privilege to have clean air and that we all need to act now."

At VP, we understand that without a healthy planet, mankind cannot sustain nor evolve.
