Unilever is a global company selling fast-moving consumer goods. In fact, a lot of the household products you buy at the supermarket are likely to be produced by Unilever, with their range of world-leading brands including Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Axe, Hellmann’s and Omo. However, Unilever isn’t like any other large manufacturing company; it has the goal of making sustainable living commonplace.
Like any business, Unilever strives for growth but recognises that growth at the expense of people or the environment is both unacceptable and commercially unsustainable. Sustainable growth is the only acceptable model for their business.
Unilever continues to believe that business must make a positive contribution to addressing the challenges the world faces and that this is the only way a business will succeed. In 2009, it launched The Compass – a strategy for sustainable growth, setting out their determination to build a sustainable business for the long term.
