Unilever Moves toward Powering Sustainably

Today I received an announcement from NineSigma announcing that "Unilever is looking to build and cultivate strategic partners for the future."

The communication requests recipients to "showcase your expertise and collaborate with Unilever brands and functions to help solve exciting business challenges." Further, "Unilever's mission is to collaborate with innovators to make sustainable living commonplace." It asks startups that are ready to scale up, creative designers, or inventors to collaborate with them.

In order to be considered for Unilever's next review by July 10, 2016, it provides a link for possible candidates HERE.

So what might this portend for converters in the future to meet their customers' demands? Are you ready for powering your facilities with renewable sources? What about the materials you use? Are you even working on it? Do you care?

Just curious. Let me know by writing to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
