The co-founder of the QI Group, Vijay Eswaran is one of the world’s leading business people with a strong history in the business world and what appears to be a powerful future ahead. The QI Group itself has become a key member of the United Nations Global Compact Network which means the company is maintaining a transparent way of doing business. Another aspect of the UNGC that is less talked about is the dedication to sustainability in the 21st-century.
Vijay Eswaran believes the responsibility of a business leader is to make sure they make a profit but not at the expense of the way life is lived for the current and future generations. In his own life, Eswaran is a keen student of meditation and begins every day focusing on his own life and how he can affect the world in a positive way. The business leader has gone so far as to release a series of business-motivational books that discuss how he can achieve more by starting the day with a period of meditation. The use of meditation means Vijay Eswaran can clear his mind of the aspects of life that are not important and push forward the needs of the QI Group and the world he can have an effect on.
The QI Group has been a member of the UNGC since 2015 when the company agreed to make a concerted effort to shift its work towards the more sustainable practices that can positively affect the environment of the world. Becoming at one with the world is something the QI group is keen to do with the company looking to become a global leader in the use of organic products as it moves into the modern era of retail.
Sustainable practices can take many forms with the QI group believing its move towards sustainability has included the desire to shift its office procedures to a paperless future. The company has been looking to make a number of changes to the way it goes about its work in the 21st-century and does not believe the overuse of paper is needed with the possibilities of Cloud-based storage.
