Our approach to reporting

We are committed to communicating our performance regularly and transparently and have been reporting on our sustainability performance since 1996.

We have two main channels for reporting on the commitments set out in the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan as well as wider topics of interest to our stakeholders:
