For Danone, healthy food begins with healthy nature. Their main approach within sustainability is to fight climate change, protect water resources, transform waste into a resource and to promote a sustainable agriculture. The group holds top positions in healthy food through the businesses Fresh Dairy Products, Baby Nutrition, Waters, and Medical Nutrition.
Last year, Danone already underlined its accomplishment towards a more sustainable world by supporting four young professionals to take part in the Global Challenge. This year, again, four participants from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will be sponsored by Danone.
Omar Monsif, who was supported by Danone Egypt last year reflects: “The Nudge Global Leadership Challenge was a life changing experience. I got connected with young potential leaders, as well as, social business entrepreneurs from different backgrounds, cultures and mindsets, all working towards the same goal of living in a better sustainable world. I learned that any impactful initiative starts with individuals willing to make a change.”
Inspired through the Challenge last year, he is now working on a waste management project to transform waste packaging material to water distillation units that provide underprivileged people with drinking water.
Nudge is proud to welcome four participants from the UAE supported by Danone to the Nudge Global Leadership Challenge 2015 in November.
