GoViably stemmed out of passion for the environment and all it’s living creatures by our founder Emily Eckert. Born in India and raised in two vastly different environments, Connecticut – surrounded by clean air and woods, and Prague – a congested historic city, Emily absorbed a life of different cultures. Her passion for animals and the environment was inside her from the beginning and after college was nurtured into a career in energy efficiency, renewables and sustainability. Throughout her career Emily interacted with many business owners. These conversations led to the realization that for many businesses, social and environmental responsibility was not yet in their immediate view.
The problem is… we, as a global society, don’t have 50 years or even 30 years to wait for all businesses to transform. That’s where GoViably comes in. Step by step we are determined to build a global sustainable economy, where businesses of all sizes have an ally to help them transform in a strategic manageable way so that customers can be confident in the businesses they support.
We all know the big businesses of the world who have all the resources they need to transform their operations and products should they choose to. Small and Medium sized businesses on the other hand, have less resources, may not know where to begin, and may not be able to afford a large corporate consultant. GoViably’s long term vision is to harness the power of technology to provide ongoing cost-effective sustainability solutions for businesses of all sizes. We hope to bring sustainable products within reach of more customers.

Degree in Global Economies, Human Rights, and the Environment from the University of Connecticut.
Passionate about building a sustainable world, and an animal lover.
Emily is the ‘Go’ in GoViably.
I grew up with a passion for helping others, and being involved with social and environmental justice. When I visit my family in Brazil, I visit my cousin Debora Muszkat, who recycles glass into accessories and furniture, and other useable objects.
Seeing from firsthand how far pollution has been impacting health and lives as well as having friends and family in risk, especially this one friend who lives in what was considered at the time an emergency state, continues to be highly impacted, has only given me another reason to advocate for environmental justice and sustainability.
