Launched in 2010, Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan specifies three long-term commitments Unilever plans to achieve by 2020:

  • To help more than one billion people improve their health and well-being;
  • To reduce the company’s environmental footprint from making and using Unilever products by 50 percent, and;
  • To source 100 percent of agriculture raw materials from sustainable sources.

These 10-year goals are part of the company’s overall sustainability vision to improve the health of billions of people without increasing the company’s environmental footprint. Measureable progress towards these goals is being made. In 2012, 100 percent of palm oil used by Unilever was purchased from sustainable sources and waste disposed from manufacturing sites was halved compared to 2008. Find out more
