“There's a lot of pre-competitive, systemic issues that we can address better together in order to shape the competitive context, so we can all be more effective and more competitive if we collaborate on the right issues."
-Andre Fourie, Global VP of Sustainability at AB InBev, on what most companies overlook in promoting sustainable practices.
For this episode of the podcast, we feature a panel discussion with LanzaTech's Chief Sustainability Officer Freya Burton and AB InBev's Global VP of Sustainability Andre Fourie.
AB InBev's portfolio comprises over 500 beer brands and includes global brands Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois, and numerous multi-country brands.
LanzaTech is a market-leading innovator in carbon capture & transformation. They have invented a technology that turns pollution into valuable raw material commodities, recycling a "liability" into practical and sustainable new products.
We talk to Freya and Andre about how companies and industry leaders can collaborate to push climate-positive actions and the role of innovation in solving recurring sustainability issues.
This conversation took place at our most recent event, What's Next Now: Sustainability – An Innovator's Guide to Climate Action, where we brought together investors, entrepreneurs, and executives to discuss the role of innovation in disrupting climate change.
