In November 2010, we set out the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, committing to a ten year journey towards sustainable growth. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan is our response to the growing challenges in nutrition, hygiene, climate change and the need for sustainable farming. What makes our Plan different is that it applies right across the value chain. We are taking responsibility not just for our own direct operations but for our suppliers, distributors and - crucially - for how our consumers use our brands. Underpinning the Plan are over 50 targets.
Challenging our suppliers to become more aware of biodiversity is part of this plan.
Part of the value of Unilever branded products is the assurance we give our customers and consumers of intrinsic high quality and safety. Our brand reputation is built on care for people and the environment at every stage of the supply chain, starting with the farms and farmers that grow and produce the ingredients for our products. Soil management, pollution reduction measures and eco-efficiency all show that farms and other businesses along our supply chains are behaving in an environmentally responsible way. Good biodiversity practices have the potential to create stories that actually enhance brand value.
