Our marketing expertise is acknowledged by our peers: since 1961, for example, we have won more than 200 Cannes Lion awards for our advertising.
New ways of doing business
Our growth strategy reflects a commitment to new and exciting ways of doing business. It has four interlocking strands:
- Our world-class brands and innovation – in 2011, we spent €1 billion on R&D to continue developing products that delight consumers
- Our great people – we are committed to finding and developing the world’s best talent and leaders and to nurturing the culture and organisation to win
- Winning in the market-place – by reaching more consumers, more often, and expanding the benefits of our products and by developing closer partnerships with retailers
- Winning through continuous improvement – by doing everything more effectively every day, from higher-quality products to faster product launches
Doing well by doing good
The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan is our blueprint for reducing our environmental impact. The plan maps out how, by 2020, we will:
- Help one billion people improve their health and wellbeing
- Halve the environmental footprint of our products
- Use 100% sustainably-grown agricultural ingredients
The social commitment implicit in our focus on sustainable living is nothing new to Unilever. It goes back to the social responsibility and philanthropy of our 19th century founders and their determination to ‘do well by doing good’. It inspires us that, 125 years ago, the company’s pioneering leaders were already intent on creating better futures. Unilever people are continuing to carry forward that mission today.
