Danone believes in building a healthier future through food and has decided to work towards this goal in cooperation with the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2017.
As Danone is a food company, reliant on nature and agriculture, they state climate change is a particular concern for them. “It is in our interest and our responsibility to help fight climate change and contribute to achieving a decarbonized economy.” Danone has 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. This is what they call their extended scope of responsibility, including agriculture.
Danone also drafted a manifesto for alimentation that summarizes their convictions and commitments, spelling out their goals and staging just how they plan to act on their mission and work with all of their stakeholders. With their believe that “preparing for tomorrow is the business of today”, Danone committed to stand together for a healthy planet. They also committed to devote all their energies to protect and preserve the abundance of life and the variety of nature, in all its forms and ecosystems.
In 2016, Danone Early Life Nutrition participated in the Nudge Global Impact Challenge with 17 candidates from 10 different countries. Behrooz Bahrami, one of last year’s participant, states:
“The Nudge Global Impact Challenge supports you to find out which direction you should take, it helps you to canalise your passion for sustainable projects to the right direction.”
We are very proud to welcome Danone for the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2017.
