Planet & Society in Unilever Global

At Unilever, our brands and our people have one purpose- to make sustainable living commonplace. We aim to build a better tomorrow where businesses care about the environment, society and the world.

We want to push our business beyond our current limits and see how we can curb the environmental crisis that is consuming the world. We do this by taking climate action to achieve net-zero emissions, protecting and regenerating nature and practising sustainable waste disposal.

We’re also striving to achieve social justice and fairness in our organisations and beyond. We are creating a world where everyone, irrespective of their background, is treated equally. We want our future generations to experience a world where the planet and society co-exist in peace. We have made this new eco-friendly, inclusive and just way of doing business common among our subsidiaries. We hope that others follow our lead in building a better world.
