Unilever is one of the world’s leading fast-moving consumer goods companies with products sold in over 190 countries. More than 2 billion consumers worldwide use a Unilever product on any given day. We meet everyday needs for nutrition, hygiene and personal care with brands that help people feel good, look good and get more out of life.
Our portfolio ranges from nutritionally balanced foods to indulgent ice creams, affordable soaps, luxurious shampoos and everyday household care products. We produce world-leading brands including Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Axe, Hellmann’s and Omo, alongside trusted local names such as Blue Band, Pureit and Suave.
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.
We realise innovation is key to our progress, and through cutting-edge science we’re constantly enhancing our brands, improving their nutritional properties, taste, fragrance, or functionality.
We invest around €1 billion every year in research and development, and have established laboratories around the world where our scientists explore new thinking and techniques, applying their expertise to our products.
