Unreasonable Impact is a partnership between Barclays and Unreasonable Group focused on scaling up entrepreneurial businesses that will help employ tens of thousands worldwide while solving some of our most pressing environmental and societal challenges. Following the recent regional accelerator programs in Asia and Americas, this week, Unreasonable Impact hosts its third annual World Forum in London, bringing together the latest cohort of entrepreneurs and world-renowned thought leaders.
Discussion centered around their inspirational work and revolutionary technologies impacting the future of food, energy, sustainable living and supply chains. Members of the Investment Bank’s Sustainable & Thematic Investing Research team were among the Barclays participants there to support the initiative. Analysts Emily Morrison, Hiral Patel and Anushka Challawala have collaborated with Unreasonable Impact entrepreneurs to help inform their recently published Research reports on food waste and insect protein.
