Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive and Unilever join AB InBev 100+ Accelerator

Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive and Unilever have joined the 100+ Accelerator, a global programme working to solve supply chain challenges across water stewardship, circular economy, sustainable agriculture and climate action.

Over the last two years, the 100+ Accelerator has helped 36 start-up companies in 16 different countries raise more than £140m by offering dedicated teams to help test out new technologies.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have The Coca-Cola Company, Colgate-Palmolive and Unilever join us as founding partners in the 100+ Accelerator,” said Tony Milikin, chief procurement, sustainability and circular ventures officer of AB InBev. “Together, we are striving to supercharge adoption of sustainable solutions by funding and accelerating fantastic innovations that will change the world by making all of our businesses more sustainable. Sustainable business is smart business, and we are working to solve huge problems that no one company can handle alone. With our combined global reach, we can accelerate progress towards a more sustainable future.”

The programme is also focussed on social challenges, which are inextricably linked to progress on the environment. From its infancy, the 100+ Accelerator has developed global partnerships including One Young World and Female Founders Alliance as well as dozens of local and regional relationships to build a pipeline of diverse founders.
