Sustainable development is not just a thought or an action, it is a belief, a philosophy, a way of life! But, due to the fast pace of the world, we tend to forget this. Sustainable Advancements aim to bridge this gap by means of knowledge dissemination, product development and community outreach programmes. The purpose is to make a better, brighter world for generations to enjoy.

"Enough of the need versus want debate! It’s time to think of what it costs to the world!"
– Nayan Mitra
It is not enough to create and disseminate knowledge about sustainability and sustainable practices; what is required is action at the ground level. The Sustainable Development Goals or the Global Goals promotes ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’ under its Goal 12. “Sustainable consumption and production is about promoting resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure, and providing access to basic services, green and decent jobs and a better quality of life for all."
Sustainable Advancements promotes this goal by working directly with the grass roots micro-enterprises and helping them produce eco-friendly and up-cycled products, that help preserve the environment, as well as bring about social and economic transformation for a better world. Alna is the responsible products arm of Sustainable Advancements.
“Only a life lived in the service to others is worth living.”
– Albert Einstein
Sustainable living, as a way of life, should start at the individual level. Sustainable Advancements works to fight poverty, hunger, inequalities and promotes good health, wellbeing, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, decent work and economic growth at the grassroots level, thus empowering communities for collective action for a better tomorrow.
Through these efforts, Sustainable Advancements help to empower disadvantaged communities to live a dignified life.
