Covid response

As the world’s biggest soap-making company, we are throwing our weight behind global and national efforts to protect lives and livelihoods from the Covid-19 pandemic.

A wide-ranging set of measures

Back in March, shortly after the World Health Organization characterised Covid-19 as a pandemic, we introduced a set of measures to support global and national efforts to help tackle the spread of Covid-19.

These include contributing €100 million through donations of soap, sanitiser, bleach and food, and making available €500 million of cash flow relief for small and medium sized suppliers and customers. We’re also helping fund a handwashing programme that aims to reach up to a billion people.

But our response goes much further.

For example, in China our R&D scientists have been sharing their hand hygiene expertise on social media, in the UK we’re helping to make ventilators for the NHS and in Brazil we have produced a special line of Cif surface cleaner for vulnerable families in the favelas of São Paulo.

Here you can read more about what we’re doing on a global, national and local level.
