About

On any given day, two billion people use Unilever products to look good, feel good and get more out of life.

 

Responsible business

For us, sustainability is integral to how we do business. With 7 billion people on our planet, the earth’s resources can be strained. This means sustainable growth is the only acceptable model of growth for our business. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan sets out to decouple our growth from our environmental impact, while at the same time increasing our positive social impact. Our Plan has three big goals that by 2020 will enable us to:

– Help more than a billion people to improve their health and well-being.

– Halve the environmental footprint of our products.

– Source 100% of our agricultural raw materials sustainably and enhance the livelihoods of people across our value chain.

about pic-01

To embed sustainability into every stage of the life cycle of our products, we’re working with our suppliers to support responsible approaches to agriculture. We’re also learning from NGOs and other organizations, recognizing that building a truly sustainable business is not something we

can do without expert advice.

We believe that as a business we have a responsibility to our consumers and to the communities in which we have a presence. Around the world we invest in local economies and develop people’s skills inside and outside of Unilever. And through our business and brands, we run a range of programmes to promote hygiene, nutrition, empowerment and environmental awareness.
