Environomics Projects LLP: A Top Renewable Energy Company
There is a pressing need to shift towards renewable energy sources. If we don’t show the urgency, the consequences would be harsh. The International Energy Agency (IEA) in a recent press conference revealed that if we were to see a noticeable level of pollution decrease by 2040, we have to decarbonize our power supply by 40%.
Significant growth in renewable sources would be possible if we tend to shift the investment pattern towards industries that develop these resources. In our new edition ‘CEO Of The Year 2021’ we bring you a story of such personalities that are helping to accelerate the low carbon transition by generating and selling renewable energy right now.
Meet Parag Shah – The Co Founder of Environomics Projects LLP.
Mr. Parag worked for more than two decades in an American MNC and had witnessed the journey from being a trainee engineer to the director. Then there was a point in life where he thought of moving out of his comfort zone and begin a new journey. He believes that if one opts for a safe life, he would never realise what it feels like to win big.
He shares his decision, “It was a tough call as I had to drop a very handsome pay package. I was getting an opportunity to switch to a new job which was a dream job of being a Managing Director of an European MNC. Finally, after a lot of thoughts, meeting with mentors, discussions with family members and a lot self-discussion, I decided to check my potential as an entrepreneur and started ENVIRONOMICS PROJECTS LLP in partnership with past colleagues. I explained it to myself that if I want to make it big I must come out of my comfort zone.”
Idowu Koyenikan in his popular book Wealth for All: Living a Life of Success at the Edge of Your Ability has rightly said:
“Sometimes it is good to be in uncomfortable situations because it is in finding our way out of such difficulties that we learn valuable lessons.”
