Dear Members and Friends

It is a pleasure to bring you a thought leadership piece by one of our SME members Coco Veda which proves, yet again, you don’t need to be a large business to achieve positive impact. Coco Veda does so because it is a purpose driven brand focused on bringing positive impact to the world through sustainable, natural beauty and wellness products which are responsibly manufactured to benefit producers, their community and consumers. Listen to what this business has to say.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive


In an era defined by global shifts in geopolitics, AI, climate change, remote work, ageism, and health concerns, the world stands at a critical crossroads. These challenges are reshaping behaviors and fostering Social Capitalism, driven by the Triple Bottomline Business Model - aligning People, Planet, and Prosperity with an evolving consciousness.

A mindful segment of the population is steering away from profit-centric decisions and reviewing strategies to embrace choices guided by purpose and conscious capitalism. This shift towards ethical decision-making prioritizes societal well-being, environmental sustainability and collective prosperity, marking a departure from traditional models.

The US$5.5 trillion wellness economy is experiencing accelerated growth. Business leaders who are leaning towards conscious capitalism are well-positioned to ride the emerging wave of this holistic well-being trend.

Coco Veda has recently launched a unique Sustainable Partnerships Cross-Border eCommerce Platform and also launched the World’s First SDG17 Coconut Industry Collaboration Platform with the belief that the future lies in meaningful collaborations that lead to triple bottom-line impact.
