Unilever Global - A business with purpose beyond profit

Back in 1883, Sunlight Soap was launched in the UK by our founder – it was pioneering, it was innovative and it had a purpose to popularise cleanliness and bring it within the reach of ordinary people. That was sustainable living, even then. Unilever now has over 400 brands that are driven by the same sense of purpose.

We want to do more good for our planet and our society, not just less harm. We want to act on the social and environmental issues facing the world and we want to enhance people’s lives with our products. Unilever has been a pioneer, innovator and future-maker for over 130 years. We plan to continue doing that and more so, sustainably.
