Danone is dedicated wholly to achieving health through food. The company also aims to build a circular economy for packaging, using sustainable materials made from sustainable sources and treating waste as a new, valuable resource. They are working towards making 100% of their packaging fully recyclable. This is a perfect fit with our theme this year: moving towards a circular economy. And since Danone is a food company, reliant on nature and agriculture, climate change is a particular concern for them. They have committed to a climate policy with a long-term goal of zero net carbon emissions—and not just direct emissions, but indirect emissions as well.
Here at Nudge, we couldn’t be happier that Danone Early Life Nutrition will again be one of our Support Partners for the fifth year in a row – we’re honoured to have 6 extraordinary young professionals from Danone joining us in October, one of whom will be Lisa van der Cruijsen. Here, she explains her motivation to join the Nudge Global Impact Challenge:
“During my diving holidays, I saw the effects that humans have on the environment, from bleached corals to plastic on the beaches. I became interested in improving my environmental footprint, started gathering more information and now I am more motivated than ever to make a change! I hope that by attending the Nudge Global Impact Challenge, I can show other people the importance of this and make them realise that we need to change our behaviour and way of living.”
