Leaving behind a career in engineering to lead the sustainability charge
Sustainable Living Lab sees itself as an innovation lab that helps companies around the world create more sustainable practices and products. And much as sustainability and green issues are the trending topics these days, SL2 was set up with nothing but a dream by Veerappan Swaminathan back in 2010. He paid himself little and stayed the course. Last year, it posted a revenue of just under S$1 million on the back of projects involving high-profile clients such as Japan’s leading packaging company Nippon Closures and various government agencies. The firm has now expanded its operations to Indonesia and India where it’s spreading its message of sustainable solutions, community building and social enterprise. So how does one turn their back on a good salaried job and embark on the unknown because they believe in it? We find out from founder and director of Sustainable Living Lab, Veerapan Swaminathan.
