Listen to this article

The significant change in air quality and water pollution was one of the few positive impacts of the pandemic yet it also had its negative side, such as the huge surge in medical waste disposal.

It is crucial that recovery from the pandemic is shaped around solutions that build a greener future. This May will see a coming together of 14 ground-breaking ventures at the 2022 Unreasonable Impact Asia Pacific programme, all working towards a common cause - that of a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future.

Joining a community of over 200 of the world’s most exciting green companies globally, Fellows from this years’ Unreasonable Impact Asia Pacific programme, of which, close to 50% are female entrepreneurs, will look at accelerating and scaling solutions that impact the future of food, energy, sustainable living and supply chains.

From stemming the flow of harmful greenhouse gases to adopting sustainable agri and aqua methods to improve biodiversity and supporting freshwater ecosystems, these entrepreneurs are tackling some of the greatest challenges facing our planet.

Since 2016, Unreasonable Impact – a global partnership between Unreasonable and Barclays – has supported high-growth entrepreneurs to address global issues by ensuring that their solutions reach new markets, transform even more lives and create thousands of jobs in the process.

By connecting these entrepreneurs to a global community of mentors and resources, and bringing the best of Barclays – colleagues, networks and expertise – the programme joins them at a pivotal stage on their growth journey and helps them to rapidly scale.
