With more consumers recognising the importance of sustainable products, large global companies are now listening and adapting their products. Unilever and 8 other global companies generate at least a billion dollars worth of revenue from sustainable products or services.
So how has a large global company like Unilever with hundreds of brands, such as Dove, integrated sustainability into its business?
In 2010, Unilever released it’s Sustainable Living Plan that aimed to halve the environmental footprint of its products by 2030 while improving the health and hygiene of more than a billion people by 2020. Unilever proposes to do this through addressing environmental impacts in the areas of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, water, waste and sustainable sourcing. The plan involves halving GHG emissions from its product lifecycle and its manufacturing processes, halving water usage, halving the waste disposed related to products and sourcing 100% of raw agriculture materials sustainably. As consumers we have the collective power to make a decision to choose which products we buy. Researching and understanding what products you buy can save the environment.
