Responding to stakeholder concerns

Paul Polman

Our approach

Unilever's commitment to winning with integrity is enshrined in our company values and underpins the way we do business. Our Code of Business Principles commits us to running our operations with honesty, integrity and openness. Our approach is always to understand issues of concern and respond.

Our consumers sometimes have specific questions about our products while other stakeholders ask about the way we run our business. Here we address some of these questions.

Product safety

Consumers trust us to provide them and their families with products that are safe.
