Our divisional structure
Doing good sits at the heart of everything we do. So when you spot a Unilever logo whilst scrubbing, brushing, licking or sipping one of our products, you can feel proud that we are committed to creating a better world for everyone.
Our brands operate in three divisions, each with a clear strategy laddering up to our purpose.

Leading in Sustainable Business
We’re proud to have been recognised by many respected organisations for our work.
In 2021 we retained our leadership of the Globescan Sustainability Leaders survey. This global survey tracks expert opinion on the evolution of the sustainability agenda, and which companies are perceived as leaders. 2021 marked our eleventh consecutive year of leadership.
In the 17th edition (2021) of the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25, we held our position in the exclusive ‘Masters’ category for the third year running. This recognises companies that have attained top-five composite scores for at least seven out of the last ten years.
The ranking looks at overall business and corporate responsibility metrics, how peers from other companies rank each other, and how Gartner analysts also view and rank these companies.
We were named industry leader in personal products in the S&P Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) 2020, achieving a score of 90 out of 100 across a range of 27 environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
We led the Most Effective Marketer category in 2020 for the fourth year in a row, with work for brands including Axe, Dove, Knorr, Lifebuoy, Lux, Omo, Rexona and Surf Excel. We have held the top spot seven times over the past ten years.
In 2020 we were given a triple ‘A’ score by environmental non-profit group CDP, for our action to mitigate climate risk, protect forests and enhance water stewardship.
