Our purpose

At Hindustan Unilever, we have a clear purpose – To Make Sustainable Living Commonplace

We have long held the belief that being a responsible, sustainable business makes us a stronger, better business. In 2010, this belief was codified in our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP), which set out our ambition of decoupling our growth from our environmental impact, while increasing our positive social impact through time-bound targets. As the sun set on the USLP in 2020, we refreshed our strategy and formulated the Unilever Compass.

At the heart of the Unilever Compass is our purpose: to make sustainable living commonplace. We are more committed to playing a leading role in tackling the environmental and social challenges facing the world. This commitment is embedded in our business strategy.

We are determined to prove that our purpose-led, future-fit business model, guided by our beliefs – that brands with Purpose Grow, Companies with Purpose Last and People with Purpose Thrive, drives superior performance.
