Unilever

Unilever’s vision for sustainable growth is to double the size of business, while reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive social impact. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan focuses on: Improving Health and Well-Being, Reducing Environmental Impact, Enhancing Livelihoods, and Sustainable Sourcing.

Unilever believes that collaboration is essential for change, and is thus stepping up engagement with governments, NGOs and other leaders in the industry to tackle global sustainability issues.
