Sustainability people profiles

We rely on the commitment and energy of all our people to help us achieve our sustainability goals.

Our people

All around the world, Unilever people are doing jobs that contribute to the environment and society.

Some are directly involved in high profile programmes relating to our three big themes of nutrition, hygiene and sustainability. These jobs involve working with our partners and partnership development, as well as promoting the sustainability of our agricultural raw materials.

Others are involved in activities that help us manage our impacts ― from setting environmental targets and monitoring our progress, to designing marketing programmes for our brands to promote better health and hygiene practices.

Here you can find out about some of these people and read about their contribution in their own words.
