Minneapolis, Minnesota — August 17, 2021 — Inspectorio today announced that it has been selected to join the Apple Impact Accelerator, a new program for minority-owned businesses that are creating environmental solutions focused on climate change, resource conservation and smarter chemistry. Inspectorio is one of 15 businesses selected for Apple’s first Impact Accelerator cohort.
“We are humbled to be recognized by Apple for our focus on innovation and commitment to the environment,” said Carlos Moncayo, CEO and Co-Founder at Inspectorio. “We couldn’t be more excited to work alongside Apple’s product and sustainability experts to take our company and products to the next level.”
Inspectorio is a cloud-based SaaS solution focused on creating dynamic and risk-based quality and compliance programs with the goal of building an interconnected, sustainable, and transparent supply chain. Today it is used by over 7,000 network participants across the globe, including some of the largest brands and retailers in the world.
Inspectorio allows brands, retailers, and suppliers to make data-driven decisions, successfully implement continuous improvement programs, and better allocate resources for performance optimization. Inspectorio uses big data and machine learning to help businesses make informed decisions about quality, sustainability, and compliance across the global supply chain.
As part of the three-month Impact Accelerator program, Inspectorio will participate in courses, live sessions, and one-on-one meetings with Apple team members to identify opportunities to align with Apple’s environmental goals. With ongoing mentorship from Apple and an expanding Impact Accelerator network, Inspectorio will have access to continuous growth and networking opportunities with alumni companies that share a commitment to the environment.
“We are thrilled to welcome our first Impact Accelerator class, and look forward to seeing how these innovative businesses will expand their work to protect the planet and our communities,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives. “On our journey to our 2030 carbon neutral goal for our supply chain and products, we’re determined to help create a greener and more equitable future for all people. The businesses we’re partnering with today are poised to become tomorrow’s diverse and innovative industry leaders, creating ripples of change to help communities everywhere adapt to the urgent challenges posed by climate change.”
Apple has committed to be carbon neutral for its entire business and supply chain by 2030 and is already carbon neutral for its corporate operations. The Impact Accelerator was announced last year as part of Apple’s Racial Equity and Justice Initiative, focused on addressing education, economic equality, and criminal justice reform.
