Can consumption become sustainable?

On Monday 15 November at 9.30am (GMT), Unilever is running a live webcast on this crucial question with a panel of experts.

Billions of people around the world aspire to a better quality of life and to enjoy the benefits of everyday products like soap, shampoo and tea.

But can we really consume more without exceeding the Earth's already fragile natural limits? What must be done by companies like Unilever if economic growth is to become sustainable?

Next Monday 15 November at 9.30am (GMT), Unilever is running a live webcast on this crucial question with a panel of experts:

Jonathon Porritt, Founder Director of Forum for the Future

John Elkington, Executive Chairman Volans, Co-founder of SustainAbility

Dr. Val Curtis, Director, Hygiene Centre, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

The moderator for the debate will be Jonathan Dimbleby, prolific broadcaster, writer and film-maker, who has a strong interest in environmental issues.

Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever and Gavin Neath, Global Senior Vice President for Sustainability will join the debate.

The event will also see the launch of Unilever's groundbreaking ten-year sustainability plan - a strategy which will explain how it will reduce its overall environmental footprint while at the same time continuing to grow its business.
