Meet The Team
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 Googles, Apples, and Dells of the world 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.

Jenn has dedicated her life to the pursuit of social equity, climate justice, and animal advocacy. She spent decades in the energy efficiency and renewable energy industries. Now she is working to expand public transit especially in rural areas where transportation accounts for the most ghg emissions as well as energy burden, particularly for the most vulnerable households.
As caretakers of this planet, it's time for us all to better understand the importance of eliminating our dependence on fossil fuels and make the move to clean, sustainable energy. I am passionate about the role we all need to play to provide a livable and healthy environment for the next seven generations.
