Awarded the winners of Nespresso Sustainability MBA Challenge


The Melbourne Business School (MBS) MBA students won the 2017 edition of Nespresso Sustainability MBA Challenge, a contest attended by more than 80 teams from top business schools in 25 countries around the world.
Aim of the initiative is increasing the awareness of the next generation of business leaders in the concept of sustainable enterprise. The Challenge is also an important element of Nespresso’s sustainability strategy – the Positive Cup – as it creates opportunities for collaboration, discussion and learning with experts in the academic community, while encouraging innovative solutions for key sustainability topics.
The MBS team of part-time MBA students Toni Kovacevic, Yuanyuan Zhao, David Creak and Maree Swinden were named winners at Nespresso headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland after pitching to a judging panel of external sustainability experts, business strategists, academics as well as senior executives of Nespresso how to make recycling Nespresso coffee pods more convenient for consumers.
