Dr. Suresh Kumar started Green Earth because he was interested in sustainability. The easiest way to start, he says, was to sell eco-friendly office supplies online. Now, however, the company’s focus has shifted, and it has begun consulting with businesses and governments in India, the United Arab Emirates, and Singapore on how to use technology and mobile apps to become more sustainable. Green Earth now employs 13 developers in Kerala, India, the very place where Kumar grew up.
