Our Sustainable Living Report Hub
We believe business growth should not be at the expense of people and the planet. That’s why we’ve changed the way we do business, and why we want to change the way business is done. Our business model drives growth that is consistent, profitable, competitive – and responsible.
The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) is our blueprint for achieving our vision to grow our business, whilst decoupling our environmental footprint from our growth and increasing our positive social impact. It is driving growth through brands with purpose, taking out costs from our business, reducing risks and helping us to build trust – creating long-term value for the multiple stakeholders we serve.
Each year we publish online a comprehensive account of progress towards these goals in our Sustainable Living Report. Our Report is complemented by a short USLP: Summary of Progress 2016 (PDF | 6MB).
Our Sustainable Living Report
Our Sustainable Living Report is published across the Sustainable Living section of our website. From this hub page you can find out about our Strategy for sustainable business and how we are seeking to drive Transformational change to the broader systems of which we are part - by using our scale and influence in four important areas.
Our Report includes our performance against the commitments in our Plan, as summarised in the graphic below. For each of the nine pillars of our Plan, we set out our Strategy; an account of our Targets & Performance; and how we are Taking Action to drive value for our business and society.
We also detail Our approach to reporting, including materiality, assurance and metrics. And What matters to you provides a quick-access A-Z index of topics we are often asked about, such as farm animal welfare and palm oil.
