Dear Data Science Community members,

Hope you are ALL doing great! With this message, we are pleased to inform you of the upcoming Consumer Goods Hackathon, which will take place on Aug 30th– 31st in our innovation campus in Strombeek-Bever.

Together with several other large non-competing companies, we are organizing a 2 day digital disruption hackathon for consumer goods. Deloitte is leading and currently AB-Inbev, ING, Eggsplore, bpost and P&G are joining from large companies. Other companies are still considering to join.

The large companies will share their challenges in 1.digital disruption on business models and approaches, 2. production processes and 3. packaging. Start-ups/SME’s will share and collaborate (in teams) on novel disruptive solutions. If desired, the larger companies can work own projects with interested start-ups /SME’s after the event. 2D sketching, 3D printing and film/animation support will be provided on site for the teams to build their proposition.

Participation to the event is free of charge. This is the website with further details, with the specific business challenges for each of the 3 topics and for registration: consumergoodshackathon .

For practical reasons, it’s required that participants register individually and specify which challenge they would like to work on. (click challenges to see the full list).

It would be great if you could spread the word and pass on the website address to specific start-ups in your network which you find relevant for the defined spaces.

Let me know if you have further questions or want to talk this with the broader team.

Thanks in advance and looking forward to your feedback.

Best regards.

Benjamin Bollot @P&G

Sustainability at P&G

P&G is committed to touching and improving lives in a way that preserves and protects the planet. We have established a long-term vision which can only be achieved by setting short-term goals to ensure we stay on track.

We want people who choose P&G brands to know that our products are created with a commitment to sustainability. From formulation to manufacturing to package design and shipment, our products are made responsibly and without trade-offs in performance or value.

Our approach to bring our strategies to life and accelerate progress is to Preserve, Partner and Pioneer.

We Preserve

preserveWe are working to use less while doing more by reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive impact on the communities we serve.

Our Pampers teams in Western Europe cut packaging by 80% by moving from “box-to-bag” packaging, saving 6,000+ tons of material, 430+ truckloads and 160+ tons of CO2 emissions per year.

In the last 20 years, Pampers has reduced 50% of the weight of each diaper and 70% of the external packaging.

We Partner

partnerWe can accomplish more with partners than we can alone.

P&G plans to meet its North America electricity demands by using 100 percent wind power to make iconic Fabric & Home Care brands, such as Tide and Dawn. This is possible thanks to a new partnership with EDF Renewable Energy (EDF RE) which will see a new Texas based wind farm generate 370,000 MWh of electricity each year. The wind farm will be fully operational in December 2016.

With support of more than 150 global partners, our key corporate cause, The P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program, marked its tenth year supporting families and children in some of the most remote parts of the world with clean drinking water.

We Pioneer

pioneerWe aim to improve tomorrow through industry-leading innovation.

We are turning agricultural corn waste into a key cleaning ingredient for Tide Coldwater. Working with DuPont, we developed a breakthrough process that will turn 7,000 tons of agricultural waste annually into cellulosic ethanol. Tide Coldwater is the first brand in the world on a path to blend cellulosic ethanol in a scalable and commercial way.
