Through UN CC:Learn, UNITAR and Danone will develop a learning programme on climate change for Danone employees.

The learning platform will be integrated into a larger internal learning platform related to Danone’s vision and goals.

26 June 2018: The UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) has launched a multi-year partnership with Danone, a global food and beverage company, to build a core set of knowledge to help promote conservation, restoration and safeguarding of the planet, and to empower Danone employees to take concrete action to drive sustainable change.

Through the One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership (UN CC:Learn), UNITAR and Danone will develop a learning programme on climate change for Danone employees to be integrated into a larger internal learning platform related to Danone’s vision and goals.

The partnership’s initial deliverables include: the 26 June 2018 launch of a unique learning platform, ‘One Planet. One Health,’ using UNITAR e-learning resources; creation of introductory courses on climate change and green economy; building of an e-learning module tailored to fit Danone’s ‘One Planet. One Health’ vision; live training delivered by UNITAR to Danone teams; and Danone joining the UN CC:Learn Steering Committee in 2019.

Earlier this year, Danone introduced nine goals, aligned with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, to drive long-term sustainable value creation and deliver its ‘One Planet. One Health’ vision. Danone’s 2030 goals relate to, inter alia, food security, public health, sustainable water and agricultural practices, circular economy of packaging and the company’s goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Danone also launched a governance and employee engagement model, ‘One Person, One Voice, One Share,’ to empower employees to actively participate in bringing these goals to life.
