PepsiCo reveals finalists of its APAC Greenhouse Accelerator Program

Three of the ten finalists in PepsiCo’s second ever APAC Greenhouse Accelerator Program 2024 are Australian.

Receiving nearly double the entries that it did in its first year, the program aims to support startups that can deliver innovative solutions in sustainable agriculture, circular economy, and climate action.

Brent Gapes, National EHS and Sustainability Manager, ANZ at PepsiCo, said they’re proud to be supporting start-ups that are playing an active role in driving innovation within the sustainability space and are thrilled to see finalists from both Australia and New Zealand in the Greenhouse Accelerator Program 2024.

“The commitment of these brands, in driving impactful and sustainable solutions, aligns with our vision of driving a more resilient and environmentally conscious future for people and the planet.”

The Australian finalists are ELIoT Energy, which is working to decarbonise the food and beverage sector by tackling Scope-3 emissions through cutting-edge energy-shifting devices that optimise green energy usage, Wildfire Energy, an Australian company developing a revolutionary gasification technology for biomass and waste to energy applications, and X-Centric, which is developing high performance soil testing instruments for accurate, precise and low-cost soil characterisation to assess its health.

The finalists were selected by a committee of leaders within PepsiCo for their unique approach to addressing environmental and sustainability challenges – key criteria aligning with PepsiCo’s transformative pep+ (PepsiCo Positive) initiative.
