“A record number of teams, 210 in total, from 70 different cities in 22 countries participated in this year’s Considition. Together with Coca-Cola in Sweden, the focus for this year’s Considition was on developing solutions for future sustainable beverage consumption – with intelligent algorithms. Significant strides are being made in the food industry to reduce the industry’s climate impact, but many challenges remain, particularly regarding packaging. The challenge for this year’s Considition participants was to create an algorithm that contributes to encouraging more consumers to choose more sustainable ways of consuming beverages,” writes It-Hållbarhet (IT Sustainability).

One of the winners, Mathias Berg from Consid in Sundsvall, states:

– It’s absolutely fantastic. I started off a bit poorly, but towards the final stages, I felt that I could actually win. It’s the most enjoyable Considition I’ve been a part of. Of course – I did win.

Even co-host Coca-Cola Sweden was pleased with the event:

– We have ambitious sustainability goals, including achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions throughout the value chain by 2040. To reach this, a reduced climate footprint from packaging is crucial. We are really looking forward to reviewing all the solutions from this year’s hackathon to see if there are opportunities to develop AI solutions for the future’s sustainable beverage consumption, says Thérèse Sundberg, Sustainability Manager at Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Sweden, in the article.

Considition is one of Sweden’s largest hackathons, and this year’s competition was the biggest yet with 210 teams and 22 represented countries. It-Hållbarhet also highlighted this:

“Previous years have seen nearly 200 teams, with over 400 of Sweden’s sharpest developers participating in the competition. The first Considition took place in 2017, and in recent years, some of Sweden’s most important companies have been involved in organizing the hackathon, such as Axfoundation, Riksbyggen, and Budbee.

– It was a fantastic hackathon with a lot of excitement. We are thrilled that we at Coca-Cola in Sweden were part of Considition this year and that so many teams wanted to participate in our sustainability challenge. We now look forward to delving into the solutions that emerged during the competition,” says Björn Hellqvist, Head of Digital at Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Sweden.

Team Cobra, consisting of Elise Chan and Tsz Fung Yau from the University of Toronto, took home the Best Student Team category.
