Environment-Friendly Packaging Plays Major Role In Unilever's Sustainability Plan

June 13, 2012: 05:06 AM EST
Unilever senior vice president Gavin Neath said his company conducted a life cycle analysis of 1,400 products, which it manufactures in 14 countries and account for about 70 percent of the company's revenues and volumes, to create baseline data for the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan. LCA results also showed the environmental impact of the company's packaging. Neath said his company addresses packaging waste by integrating recyclability in packaging, supporting consumer education, and cooperating with governments and concerned groups to improve recycling infrastructure in countries where Unilever operates. Also, Unilever has centralized management of packaging for its global operations in order to standardize packaging-related decisions, especially those related to materials used.
