13 Examples of Businesses Making a Positive Impact On the World

From sharing legal knowledge to creating a more sustainable car industry, here are 9 answers to the question, “How do you hope to make a positive impact on the world through your business?”

  • Sharing Legal Knowledge
  • Helping People Create Careers that Work for Them
  • Building Global Gatherings and Cultural Corralling
  • Striving to Provide Solid Financial Education
  • Incorporating Sustainability and Family Values
  • Empowering Farmers With a Smarter Food Source

Sharing Legal Knowledge

We can provide a positive impact on the world by providing knowledge and resources to benefit people in the often complicated legal world. It isn’t a transaction without benefits. Becoming an authority in your field and providing your wisdom to the public at large can help a business solidify its position within its field and attract customers and clients. For every amount of effort you put into building up your business as a resource that people can rely on, you’ll increase the trust your audience has in your business and its services. That trust can help your business to grow. Providing knowledge is one of the best exchanges you can make to have a positive impact on the world. The knowledge you provide will always be of use to someone, and in return, you’ll be their go-to source when they need services beyond the scope of what knowledge alone can provide.

Helping People Create Careers that Work for Them

Freelancing changed my life. It gave me back my time and allowed me to be more present with my family. Others took notice, which inspired me to add freelance coaching to my services. As part of my coaching, I write blogs, share advice, host webinars, and provide tons of free content to the digital masses to help them see potential beyond the 9-to-5 or traditional business ownership. It is my goal to help as many people as I can create careers around their lives instead of trying to fit into other people’s boxes. We only get one life, and spending it behind someone else’s desk and working on someone else’s terms is not the only option to make a living. I’m hoping to empower others to monetize their skills and make a living while also making a life.

Building Global Gatherings and Cultural Corralling

We hope to make a positive impact on the world through our travel business by creating experiences that inspire our customers to not only travel around the world, but to also understand and appreciate other cultures, religions, and ways of life. We want to facilitate travel that instills in our customers a deeper appreciation for the complexities of the global community, leading to a more harmonious and understanding world. We want to empower our customers to be ambassadors for cross-cultural understanding, connecting beyond borders and making the world a more connected and accepting place.

Striving to Provide Solid Financial Knowledge

Life and My Finances aims to provide financial advice to those who need it. This has the potential to make a significant positive impact on the lives of our clients. We acknowledge the fact that many people struggle with managing their finances, whether it’s due to lack of knowledge, time, or resources. That is why we strive to provide the guidance and support that individuals need to make informed financial decisions that can improve their lives. One of the primary ways that we can help others is by providing education and advice on managing personal finances. Many people have never been taught how to budget, save, or invest their money effectively. We provide tools, articles, how-to’s, etc., to help individuals achieve financial security and independence. I like to think that even if we manage to help only one person, then what we do is 100% worth it.

Incorporating Sustainability and Family Values

We are dedicated to having a positive influence as a fifth-generation family business. We are aware of the significance of sustainability and its effects on the environment. We ensure that our procedures are environmentally friendly and try to use sustainable resources in our sleep wellness products. Also, we place a foremost priority on family values and strive to incorporate them into every facet of our company. We ensure that our staff are handled with the utmost respect and care and are treated like family. It’s part of our commitment to operating in a sustainable and socially responsible manner. Our commitment to sustainability and family values is ultimately reflected in the quality of our products. We focus 100% on quality, ensuring that our customers receive the best possible sleep gear. We want our customers to not only enjoy a good night’s sleep but also have peace of mind knowing that they are making a positive impact on the world by patronizing our family business.

Empowering Farmers With a Smarter Food Source

I hope to empower the poor while making agricultural and farming practices environmentally safer. Our descendants should be able to enjoy life on our planet. We, as humanity, need to reflect and start correcting some mistakes we’ve been making, blaming no one for the situation we’ve gotten into. I deal with the farming and distribution of black soldier fly larvae, a nutritious insect, which can upcycle organic waste that would otherwise end up in landfills. At the same time, this insect provides a much-needed protein used in the production of animal and pet feeds and replaces soy and fishmeal, the production of which has a devastating impact on the environment. The farms we work with belong to small-scale farmers, and the sale of larvae allows them to make a decent living. We are nowhere near being a large business, yet positively impacting a few families and helping the environment gives us the motivation to go on.

Driving Sustainability Through Eco-friendly Practices

I aim to make a positive impact on the world by implementing eco-friendly solutions throughout my organization. By reducing our carbon footprint, we will not only minimize environmental harm but also encourage industry peers to follow suit. This entails utilizing renewable energy sources, implementing efficient waste management systems, and promoting a circular economy that emphasizes resource conservation. As a result, we can create a cleaner, healthier planet for future generations, fostering long-term economic growth while preserving our environment.

Offering Sustainable Clothing Options

I hope that by offering sustainable clothing options in Pakistan, we will help people reduce their carbon footprint and ultimately do their part in preserving the planet. More than ever, people are coming around to the fact that fast fashion has a detrimental impact on the world around us. A big part of our mission is educating people on the reasons why they should be more selective about the products they allow into their environments.

Nabeel Abdullah, CEO, Sapphire


Creating a More Sustainable Car Industry

We want to positively impact the world by creating a more sustainable car industry. This means providing an affordable, reliable platform for buying and selling car parts. Doing so reduces landfill waste and decreases our collective environmental footprint. Racebuilds also encourages users to use recycled or refurbished parts and to repair or rebuild existing vehicles. This helps to maintain the integrity of the car culture and allows for more opportunities for people to become financially independent. We also strive to provide a safe, secure space where customers can confidently buy and sell parts at fair prices.
