Meet Keith Weed, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Unilever

Last week, Yvette Torres-Rahman, Partnerships Director at Business Fights Poverty, interviewed Keith Weed, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Unilever.

Keith spoke about the issues they aim to raise awareness for through the Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards, and what the business case was for launching the Awards back in 2013.   Keith also talked about how Unilever is placing sustainability at the core of its business. 

This year's winner of the Award is Daniel Yu, founder of ReliefWatch.   His project is helping health workers manage medicine inventory records via mobile technology.  Daniel and other entrepreneurs are inspiring Unilever employees to be more entrepreneurial and to find innovative ways to put sustainability at the core of their business.

The scale of some of the problems Unilever is tackling such as deforestation and WASH are enormous, and the message for other Business Fights Poverty members is that business needs to work with civil society and government to make a meaningful impact at scale.
