Unilever's Sustainability Efforts Show Results

April 17, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
In 2015, Unilever reported it has reduced carbon emissions at its factories by 32 percent and water use by 29 percent, compared with levels in 2008. According to the company, every factory at its 240 operating locations produces zero waste. Launched in 2010, Unilever's sustainability initiative goes beyond in-house operations to include reviewing a product's lifecycle, from the raw materials used to landfill. Because of its size, Unilever believes even small achievements can mean a lot for the environment. For example, reducing plastic use by 15 percent can save about 27,000 ton of plastic resin each year. Unilever is partnering with other companies, such as Walmart, and even competitors to help promote sustainability as a business strategy.
