Ran Sharon, Founder, and CEO, Clariter, a Global Clean Tech Innovation Company
Entrepreneur, innovator and businessman, Ran Sharon is the founder and CEO of Clariter.
In a fast paced and continuously evolving world, we are causing collateral damage to nature. Many big companies and businesses progress at the cost of environmental damage. Awareness on green policies and environment compliance rules for companies are beginning to take shape. The young generation is highly conscious of the brands they are trusting. Hence following strict ESG policies and regulations is vital for businesses to survive.
The 3Rs- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle : are becoming increasingly essential.
Today on TBCY we have with us an entrepreneur whose business is not only environment friendly but also plays a big role in dealing with plastic waste. We are pleased to welcome Ran Sharon on the podcast.
Ran is the Founder and Ceo of Clariter, a Global CleanTech Innovation company. He is an Entrepreneur, Innovator and Businessman. He lectures on Entrepreneurship, Green Economy, Impact and Effective Networking. Ran is also a member of the YPO.
In this very articulate conversation with Ashutosh Garg, Ran talks about his venture Clariter and takes us on his nature-friendly journey.
Clariter is a venture that makes use of plastic waste to turn it into products that are needed and demanded in society. It is a very thoughtful initiative that not only deals with plastic waste but also curates usable products.
He talks passionately about his business and he is proud that he can contribute to society while being conscious of the environment.
“For me not being an environmentalist but an innovator and a disruptor. The concept of taking something which has low value, zero value and it is considered to be a waste and transforming it into a product that people need- that blew my mind. Over the years you know we emerged and we have developed but I would say the core of our work is taking stuff that no one wants and transforming it to stuff that everybody needs that stayed!”
The problem of plastic:
Further into the conversation, Ran discusses the effort that goes into building an environment conscious brand. He throws light on the issue of plastic waste and asserts that it is larger than any other global issue.
Any number that I will throw, it’s nothing compared to the problem today. You know it’s huge. In the sea for example, you have like an island of plastic flow and some say, I did not say it personally, but there are islands of plastic – the size of france!
Taking conscious steps:
Ran believes that even small steps and small changes can go a long way. If big and small corporate companies decide to make a change, it is possible to completely eradicate the problem. Waste management is a widely discussed issue but what matters is action.
Ran’s business stands on the grounds of environmental consciousness and social welfare. His work is a big contribution to society and he plans on scaling it globally!
