We have 172,000 employees and generated sales of €48.4 billion in 2014. Over half (57%) of the company’s footprint is in developing and emerging markets.

For us, sustainability is integral to how we do business. This means sustainable growth is the only acceptable model of growth for our business. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan sets out to decouple our growth from our environmental impact, while at the same time increasing our positive social impact. Our Plan has three big goals that by 2020 will enable us to:

  • Help more than a billion people to improve their health and well-being.
  • Halve the environmental footprint of our products.
  • Source 100% of our agricultural raw materials sustainably and enhance the livelihoods of people across our value chain.

At the heart of our business is our purpose – to make sustainable living commonplace.

Unilever was ranked number one in its sector in the 2014 Dow Jones Sustainability Index. In the FTSE4Good Index, it achieved the highest environmental score of 5. It led the list of Global Corporate Sustainability Leaders in the 2014 GlobeScan/SustainAbility annual survey for the fourth year running, and in 2015 was ranked the most sustainable food and beverage company in Oxfam’s Behind the Brands Scorecard.

Also, Unilever has been named in LinkedIn’s Top 3 most sought-after employers across all sectors.
