The results are in from the 2018 Change the Game competition
The 2018 Change the Game (CTG) competition is over, but the excitement continues! We were thrilled to receive 5,153 entries, out of which two teams made us proud and were ranked as the number 1 and 2 runner-ups for the Asia Pacific region. This is no small feat, considering how stiff the competition was and how many rounds these teams had to progress through. For the 2018 competition, participants were asked to address the business challenge of managing plastic waste and eliminating plastic in production.
The 1st regional runner-up was Team Sustainablers from IBA University, consisting of Hamza Raza and Ahmed Masood. Their big idea to curb plastic waste was to introduce a customer-driven waste collection and management system leveraging PepsiCo’s retail salesforce to help collect and recycle plastic waste.
The 2nd regional runner-up was Team LUMS Basic from LUMS, consisting of Alyshan Parvez and Muhammad Mansoor. Their idea was to introduce a smart container that automatically recognizes, sorts and compresses plastic using sensors, and sends an automatic notification to a plastic collection company.
Hamza and Ahmed will be joining the PepsiCo family as Management Trainees in a few months, while Alyshan and Mansoor will be shadowing one of our senior business leaders for a full week, and also get a career coaching session with our General Manager.
Team Sustainablers had this to say about the competition: “PepsiCo CTG was an experience worth living all over again!” while Team LUMS Basic said: “the competition gets tougher and more thrilling every year. CTG 2018 was one of its kind!”
Join us in congratulating these bright individuals!
