Unilever Sustainable Living Plan: improving health and well-being

Partner(s)

We are working with other organisations, such as the Consumer Goods Forum, the World Economic Forum, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, NGOs and governments, to drive concerted, cross-sector change.

Description/achievement of initiative

By 2020 we will help more than a billion people take action to improve their health and well-being.

Implementation methodologies

Unilever's future success depends upon being able to decouple our growth from our environmental footprint, while at the same time increasing our positive social impacts. Meeting these targets is therefore at the heart of our growth strategy, and success will require engagement and effort across all parts of the business.
