Whatever the brand, wherever it is bought, we’re working to ensure that it plays a part in helping fulfil our purpose as a business – making sustainable living commonplace. We want our business to grow but we recognise that growth at the expense of people or the environment is both unacceptable and commercially unsustainable. Sustainable growth is the only acceptable model for our business. Our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) is central to our business model. It sets out how we are growing our business, whilst reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive social impact. Our USLP has three big goals: • Help more than a billion people to improve their health and wellbeing. • 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. We know that our products must be sustainable at every stage in their life-cycle, not just in our factories. That means working with others, including our suppliers, consumers, governments, NGOs and other businesses to help create the major changes that are needed to address the biggest challenges facing our world. • €53.3 billion turnover in 2015 • 58% of our business is in emerging markets • 13 brands have sales of more than €1 billion a year • 168,000 people work for Unilever • 45% of our managers are women • 29% reduction in waste impact per use of our products since 2010 • No.1 FMCG employer of choice among students at our target universities in 34 countries
