This month we’re sitting down with Victoria Marin, who brings a global perspective to our Okeanos Argentina office, with time spent in London and Valencia. When she’s not spending time with her cat Tino, Victoria works on our Accounts Receivable team. To learn about what motivated her to pursue a career in sustainability, read on.
What inspired you to pursue a career in sustainability?
I’ve always been passionate about environmental and social issues. I believe that we have a responsibility to protect our planet and improve the well-being of communities, and working for a sustainable company allows me to make a material difference in these areas. Through my work, I can contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future for both our planet and society.
You have immersed yourself in a global work environment with diverse cultures. What do you feel you bring to your team, especially from your cultural background, that contributes to achieving objectives?
Having grown up in Argentina and lived abroad, I’ve come to deeply appreciate diverse perspectives, communication styles, and problem-solving methods. These experiences allow me to bring a unique perspective to the table, encouraging innovative thinking and fostering a more inclusive team dynamic.
What is the most rewarding aspect of working in sustainability?
The most rewarding aspect is the profound sense of purpose it brings. Knowing that my daily efforts have a positive impact on the environment and society is incredibly fulfilling. It’s a privilege to be part of a team that is actively striving to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges, whether it’s reducing carbon emissions, conserving resources, or promoting social equity.
What are some of the key lessons you’ve learned in your career about the intersection of business and sustainability?
My ‘Eureka!’ moment with Made From Stone’s technology came when I had the opportunity to see the final product. This experience emphasized that we weren’t just discussing abstract concepts or potential benefits; we were looking at a real-world solution to a global problem. That moment solidified my belief in Made From Stone’s technology as a powerful driver of positive change, making it an investment opportunity that aligned not only with our financial objectives but also with our commitment to a more sustainable future.

Lego® is letting go of a plan to make their famed toy bricks out of used plastic bottles.
After two years of testing and 250 prototypes, the Denmark-based toy giant concluded that despite reducing virgin plastic, the recycled PET bottles the company was testing with “failed to save on carbon emissions.”
Lego®, which has invested more than $1.2 billion in sustainability initiatives, remains committed to transitioning to more sustainable materials and reducing their emissions by 37% by 2032.
Did you know Made From Stone™ technology can tackle both plastic content AND CO₂ emissions?
