Creating bold operations that drive sustainability

Being bold means bringing your whole self to the situation and engaging fully with it. It involves openness, optimism, and a commitment to something bigger than yourself. I define being bold in business as having the courage to make difficult decisions and taking ownership of decisions. There are so many challenges to overcome and so many different ways to tackle various issues. As a CEO, what is important is the ability to carry through on your decision and execute with perfection.” – Christian Ranke, CEO of TriData

Since TriData is a new business, they wanted to create comprehensive and bold processes that support the environment, and educate their clients and vendors about their journey. With this aim in mind, TriData currently focuses on two key green initiatives:

  1. Leading their industry with responsible recycling of older generation financial hardware.
  2. Educating their workforce on renewable technologies and how to implement such technology in their operations. This approach works to create a green culture.

Promoting sustainable design in an industry that lacks such developments

TriData has a strong green mission and states to be the only business in their industry that’s proactive in this space. They are focused on creating a roadmap to lead their business with standardized, sustainable operations.

TriData believes that by sharing the strategy they use to achieve their goals, more partners will implement similar measures and assimilate a new vision with sustainability at its heart.

Sustainability challenges

TriData views business sustainability as a solvable challenge, hence they’ve not been deterred by the hurdles they’ve faced.

For TriData, the most challenging aspects of going green have been:

  1. Establishing an effective sustainability roadmap,
  2. Encouraging a behavioral shift in key stakeholders to accept their supply chain,
  3. Encouraging a behavioral shift in key stakeholders to adhere to new, more sustainable standards.

TriData signed up to the Green Business Bureau for support as they work to achieve their green goals, overcome the above challenges, and gain the recognition they deserve.

Embedding sustainability as a core company value

TriData’s values and vision for the future can be summarized in the following quote:

We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” – American Historian, Howard Zinn
