Unilever Proceeding Rapidly Toward Sustainability Goals

April 2, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
In a time of climate change, water scarcity, and rising populations, sustainable agriculture is increasingly important not only for managing business risk, but also for boosting brand marketability, according to Unilever. For example, last year Knorr was able to claim that a new soup launched in France included tomatoes sustainably grown in accordance with the Unilever Sustainable Agriculture Code. The company procures half of its raw materials from the farming and forestry industries, so sustainability is hugely important. Unilever says it is now sourcing 36 percent of its agricultural raw materials sustainably. Significant progress has been made in raw materials such as palm oil, vanilla, sugar and sunflower oil.
