“Our vision is to rethink how many of the material needs of society can be met by using renewable agriculturally based raw materials, … it is one of very few institutions in the world that can bring together so many physical and life scientists, engineers and social scientists with the talent and interest in sustainable development, or that has access to so many bright young minds.” ~ Larry Walker
We rely on the commitment and energy of all our people to help us achieve our Sustainability goals.
All around the world, Unilever people are doing jobs that contribute to the environment and society. They are contributing to our business success and helping us to achieve our Sustainable Living Plan targets.
Some jobs involve working with our partners and partnership development, others promoting the Sustainability of our agricultural raw materials.
Some are involved in activities that help us manage our impacts ― from setting environmental targets and monitoring our progress, to designing marketing programs for our brands to promote better health and hygiene practices.
Many corporations have recognized that their employees are the most important resource in the organization. Others are beginning to understand that argument and changing their corporate values to better support employees. So, discussing the issues surrounding Sustainability, eliminating waste through changes to resolve those problems, are mostly resolved by educating and training your employees.
