Series 1, episode 15 of the Sustainability Champions Podcast 🎙
Introducing May Al-Karooni; Founder & CEO of Globechain, a company that is a leading ESG data reuse marketplace connecting enterprises with non profits, small businesses and people to redistribute unneeded items.
Globechain generates ESG data on your impact, helping you reduce waste costs and achieve your sustainability and SDG targets.
May Al-Karooni realised no one had digitised the waste industry when the bank she worked for moved offices across the road. Rather than moving their office furniture, most of which was in perfect condition, they disposed of it all and purchased brand new furniture.
Seeing this immense waste was a revelation; she knew there were charities and people that needed these items, and that her bank had also incurred high fees for both the disposal and repurchase of the furniture.
This revelation resulted in the birth of Globechain!
In February 2022, our Founder Daniel Hartz interviewed May as she was scaling Globechain into new markets and its marketplace was beginning to be used by more users. Today, Globechain is the biggest reuse marketplace worldwide, with over 10,000 members operating in the UK, Spain, the UAE and New York.
We brought the Sustainability Champion's Podcast series back in September of this year, and Globechain have helped us facilitate this series by sponsoring our episodes! A champion we featured in 2020, two years later is now helping us showcase more champions from the world.
A truly inspiring sustainable champion, this week we speak with our series sponsor Globechain and their Founder May Al-Karooni!
