Growing up deeply connected to nature, Juliana Adam and Ambika Sangaran, respectively the CEO and partner of Biji-Biji Initiative, are determined to make the world a better, cleaner place. These passionate environmentalists work with equal-minded partners to spearhead various eco-conscious efforts that includes recycling discarded seat belts into chic fashion accessories.
"Being in Biji-Biji, there's always this sense of determination and grit that powers you up," says Ambika. "You always feel like nothing's too difficult to fight for and that makes us move forward."
Leading by example, Juliana and Ambika's efforts have inspired many, and their steadfast commitment to their goals resonates with Volvo, which is also on a sustainable mission of their own with the new S60.
Going The Distance
The drive to maintain the conversation on sustainability is always at the top of their minds —even during a pandemic. If this involves commuting in a green vehicle, all the better. Which is why the ladies are particularly thrilled to get behind the wheel of the new Volvo S60 hybrid sedan.
Always finding potential in waste, they have to get around the city to meet with various stakeholders to propel their mission to reimagine what it means to upcycle, recycle and develop a shared vision for a better, greener future.
"When a company like Volvo leads the way in green technology, it nudges us to do the same and that's how we achieve holistic sustainability," says Ambika.
