Unilever Reports Hits, Shortfalls With Its First-Year Sustainability Efforts

April 27, 2012: 02:59 AM EST
Unilever released its first-year progress report regarding its Sustainable Living Plan objectives. The report shows that sustainably sourced agricultural materials increased from 14 percent in 2010 to 24 percent in 2011, with its two major raw materials leading the way — 64 percent of palm oil and 60 percent of paper and board coming from sustainable sources. Also, Unilever's most popular spreads now have less than one-third saturated fat, while renewable energy accounts for 20 percent of the company's total energy consumption. Unilever, however, was less successful with targets that involve consumer behavior change.
