Unilever

Unilever's biggest impacts do not come from its own operations. Our 264 factories account for only a small proportion of our emissions. These are issues which we cannot tackle alone. Together with NGOs, customers and other partner organizations we have programs and commitments in place to address them at each stage of the value chain. Our ambition is to purchase all our key crops from sustainable sources. We have already taken the lead in many areas.
