Marc Engel, chief supply chain officer of Unilever adds, “The 100+ Accelerator allows industries to work together to propel sustainable innovation. Partnerships like these are critical for transforming global supply chains towards a greener future. The program’s social inequality component is also aligned with Unilever’s values; this year, we made commitments to ensure that everyone who directly provides us with goods and services receives a living wage by 2030, we’re increasing our spend with suppliers from underrepresented groups and committed to train 10 million young people."
Through the power of our companies combined, I’m excited about the impact that the program will bring," Engel says. "We need to tackle climate change and social inequality to provide a world that is positive and healthy for people and the planet.”
“We’ll continue to set the bar high, updating challenges for the 100+ Accelerator on a yearly basis, and together with our partners continue to scale innovation and push towards common goals,” says Barcenas.
