In recent years, various changes in the world have made it apparent that the supply chain is limited and finite. Because of this, sustainability has risen to the top of the priority list of many enterprises. In fact, more than half of executives identify it as one of their most pressing areas of concern. Among these organization leaders, 95% have shared that they plan to implement tactics that help curb unsustainable practices and replace them with a more environment-friendly approach. Yet despite these noble efforts and attempts, only a measly 23% have followed through with their promises.
Cognizant of this, Spencer Steliga is leveraging his expertise in the tech space to create innovative and sustainable solutions. He is an esteemed tech entrepreneur who is currently a member of the Board of Advisors for the University of California, Irvine’s College of Continuing Education.
Spencer is also the founder and CEO of Onwrds, Inc., a parent company to several tech brands that offer services specializing in social good and environmental benefit. One such trailblazing enterprise under his wing is Shuddl, a platform that uses blockchain technology and Web 3.0 applications to transform the logistics industry.
This forward-facing strategy is something that many experts across the board see immense potential in. After all, blockchain technology offers a crucial element towards accomplishing sustainability: transparency. As an assistant professor of Information and Decision Sciences at California State San Bernardino, Lewis A. Njualem excellently explained, “Without an appropriate level of visibility, a sustainable supply chain will find meeting its sustainability objectives challenging.”
With Web 3.0, this formerly massive roadblock is easily addressed, thus allowing for “end-to-end traceability, speed of product delivery, coordination, and financing.” And so, by dismissing old ideas in favor of multi-party orchestration across enterprises, the entrepreneur believes that his venture can propel the supply chain to achieve a net-neutral future. Moreover, it enables immediate exception resolution, real-time visibility, and a quick boost in efficiency for all involved enterprises.
On top of creating Shuddl, Spencer also started RedTurn, a company that seeks to embrace experimental carbon removal methods which offset the carbon produced by Shuddl. Over time, the brand has evolved into an idea incubator that provides an intuitive and valuable platform for aspiring sustainability advocates. This all-encompassing and comprehensive approach is a testament to the Executive Director’s unwavering passion for sustainability.
Not only that, but the visionary has also initiated an annual scholarship program at the College of Design in South Africa. The year-long course in Sustainability in Design allows students to conceptualize their own innovations wherein RedTurn’s carbon reduction algae-based products can be incorporated. From there, the various products and designs are then examined and analyzed by a panel of experts to get an opportunity to be distributed at the consumer level globally.
Moving forward, Spencer Steliga remains steadfast in his goal of utilizing cutting-edge innovation to advocate for sustainability. In addition, the tech entrepreneur intends to continue developing and enhancing his holistic and all-encompassing strategies that promote and encourage environmental protection and social reforms.
