CEO, Unilever

What is your company doing?

Unilever's Sustainable Living Plan outlines how we will achieve our ambition of sustainable growth. It is at the heart of our business model and our approach to transformational change on issues such as eliminating deforestation, water, sanitation & hygiene, and sustainable agriculture.

Why are you doing it?

The SDGs offer a once in a life opportunity to build a more sustainable, inclusive and equitable future for the next generation, while helping build a stronger business. Our belief is that embedding sustainability into our business model drives growth, reduces cost, improves trust and reduces risk.

What is the impact?

With business fully aligned to the SDGs, we can achieve them faster and at a lower cost. By identifying common interests, and mobilising stakeholders in all sectors, we will move from small, incremental programmes to systemic changes with the potential to benefit billions of people around the world.
