Charlie Beevor, Unilever’s Global VP of Household Cleaning, recently attended World Water Week in Stockholm. Here he explains why and how we are involved, and the particular focus of our Domestos brand.
With World Water Week 2017 underway in Stockholm, Jonathan Gill, Unilever’s Senior Manager of Health & Wellbeing in our Chief Sustainability Office team, gets the views of Tim Wainwright, Chief Executive of WaterAid UK, on the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) agenda and how private sector partnerships have a key role to play in delivering its goals.
Here at Unilever we believe in the power of partnerships, and understand the vital need to work together to achieve positive change in society. We are committed to reducing waste, with a bold ambition to develop packaging that is fully reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025, and we are working hard with our partners to ensure meet that target. But we also love to hear about the inspiring partnerships other organisations are creating to make sustainable change happen, which is why we are so excited to introduce Toast Ale, an organisation which embraces the circular economy, using left-over bread to make beer, and making lots of friends along the way. Chief Toaster Rob Wilson tells us more.
Unilever recently published a booklet sharing the results of our groundbreaking new research into the role sustainability plays in consumer purchasing decisions, the lessons learned from putting purpose at the heart of our leading brands and how those sustainable living brands delivered 60% of our growth in 2016.
Amanda Sourry, President of Unilever’s Foods & Refreshment category, explains that, while the global food system may appear broken, Unilever is committed to helping fix the problem in three key focus areas.
