Mr. Cdr Sravan Kumar Khuntia
Achiever's Success Story
Empowering Eco-Friendly Choices and Redefining Sustainability
Cdr Sravan Kumar Khuntia dedicated more than two decades to the Indian Navy’s Aviation branch, serving on the renowned aircraft carriers INS Viraat and INS Vikramaditya. After facing health challenges and taking early retirement due to a disability, Cdr Sravan channeled his environmental consciousness into researching climate crisis mitigation.
Upon settling in Mumbai, he encountered a void in the availability of diverse cleantech products. This led to the inception of cleantech-mart.com, a SaaS-based AI-enabled aggregator offering a broad spectrum of cleantech products and services. The platform swiftly gained traction, attracting over 1 Lakh environmentally conscious consumers and companies, accumulating more than 5 million page visits within months.
Cleantech Mart, featuring 150 categories and 5500 products, expanded to meet the needs of local customers and MSMEs. Responding to B2B demand, the platform’s consultancy arm, carbinnov.com, emerged to assist companies in offsetting carbon emissions. Introducing a multi-language feature and Marketing as a Service, Cleantech Mart set itself apart in the e-commerce market.
Backed by prestigious institutions such as IIT Bombay, Harvard Business School, and Startup India, Cleantech Mart received seed funding and earned accolades like the Prithvi award and Indian Achiever’s Award for its outstanding contributions to Sustainability and ESG. With support from notable organizations, including VISA and IKEA, Cleantech Mart remains dedicated to fostering a cleaner and healthier planet.
As Cleantech Mart’s influence grows, its unwavering commitment to a sustainable and vibrant future invites others to join this transformative journey towards environmental stewardship.
