International development expert, Hokuma Karimova, and her team at EnviroVenture have continued in the pursuit of simplifying sustainability and incorporating it into the SME business model as the company recently unveiled opportunities in the $20 trillion economic sustainability market in as little as two weeks. Since the launch of the business in January 2021, EnviroVenture has worked with 8 companies in 7 countries, establishing itself as the go-to boutique sustainability consultancy.
“EnviroVenture created a simple and clear process for SMEs to adopt sustainability practices into their business model without overwhelm and stress,” said Hokuma Karimova, international development, and sustainability expert and founder of EnviroVenture.
There have been increasing calls for businesses across different industries to embrace more environmentally sustainable models due to concerns about climate change and its effects. Unfortunately, the calls seem to be falling on deaf ears as a recent report published by the OECD states that 99% of all firms are made up of SMEs, but only 10% of them have published sustainability reports in 2018. Consequently, it can be rightly deduced that a majority of SMEs are unprepared for market and environmental disruptions, which could be detrimental to their going concern. However, Hokuma Karimova is looking to change this narrative, a move that led to the creation of EnviroVenture.
EnviroVenture has grown in leaps and bounds in a relatively short while to become one of the most sought-after sustainability consultancy aligning companies to ISO 26000 standards and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The feats achieved by the firm in less than six months have positioned it as the go-to solutions provider for SMEs looking to improve their market performance and prepare for future market disruptions.
Hokuma Karimova has been able to leverage her over 10 years of work experience in international development, sustainability, corporate social responsibility, business development, and communications to deliver groundbreaking solutions to clients. Over the course of her career, she implemented projects funded by the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and the European Commission in sectors ranging from waste management to agriculture.
As a leader in EnviroVenture, she is focused on helping small and medium (SME) sized businesses to leverage sustainability and strengthen market positioning by finding new opportunities, improving stakeholder engagement, and increasing brand equity.
