CREATING BETTER FUTURES MADE BY YOU
We are the global company behind powerhouse brands such as Dove, Magnum and Surf.
Our products are sold in more than 190 countries and are used by two billion people every day, to help themselves feel good, look good and get more out of life.
We are a global leader in the dynamic fast moving consumer goods industry, with market-leading brands in the personal care, foods, homecare and refreshment categories. We are strong in both the developed economies and in what we call the developing and emerging markets, which already represent 55% of our business.
In 2011, we achieved a global turnover of €46.5 billion, up 6.5% on 2010.
We have ambitious growth plans, aiming to double the size of our business while reducing our environmental footprint.
We have many of the world’s best-loved and most successful brands. Our portfolio includes 12 €1 billion brands and, in Dove, a €3 billion personal care brand.
Our strong brands reflect the potency and reach of our marketing. In 2012, we spent €6.1 billion on advertising and promotion, creating engaging campaigns across all channels – from iPad to billboard and point-of-sale.
Our marketing expertise is acknowledged by our peers: since 1961, for example, we have won more than 200 Cannes Lion awards for our advertising. And, in 2012, our Chief Marketing & Communications Officer was named International Marketer of the Year by media and marketing publishers M&M and Marketer of the Year by the UK Marketing Society.
New ways of doing business
Our growth strategy reflects a commitment to new and exciting ways of doing business. It has four interlocking strands:
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:
Our environmental leadership has won us many accolades, including topping the Dow Jones Food Producers 2011 Sustainability Index for the 13th successive year and heading the 2011 Climate Counts Scorecard, which tracks efforts by the world’s leading companies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our sustainability record also makes us attractive to recruits: in 2012, we again featured in the top 30 of employer branding company Universum’s league table of the ‘World’s most attractive employers’.
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.
