Unilever Requires Supply Chains To Commit To Anti-Deforestation Policy

April 8, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Unilever has told suppliers that all packaging materials containing wood fiber need to be traceable “from certified and known sources by 2020.” The move is part of an effort by the company to stop global deforestation in its supply chains by ensuring that paper and board packaging is sustainably sourced by the end of 2015. According to the company, sustainably sourced paper and board increased to 87 percent in 2014, up from 62 percent in 2013. Unilever research has found that 75 percent of consumers would be more likely to buy a product if it was made from sustainably sourced ingredients.
