Rebuilding a greener economy and fostering a sustainable world for future generations has been a global policy focus since emerging from the pandemic-induced recession. For Vivek Tripathi, an industry veteran in oil and gas, this is not just a policy statement but a call to action, one that he passionately embraces. In 2021, Tripathi founded Olive Gaea, a venture dedicated to assisting businesses in narrowing their climate action gap, driven by a personal commitment to contributing to a more sustainable world.
