Unilever Launches New Initiative to Inspire Sustainable Living


“We believe that large companies like ours have to be part of the solution to the problems the world is facing. Adopting sustainable lifestyles and people using their purchasing power to make consumption choices that are good for them and good for the world are important factors in the drive to reducing social inequality and averting the worst climate change predictions – to make sustainable living commonplace.”

Jay Aldous, Head of WFP’s Private Partnerships Division, comments: “With Unilever’s ongoing support, the World Food Programme is playing a vital role in protecting the next generation by providing nutritious food to pregnant mothers or women of child-bearing age and delivering the right food to growing children so that they can realise their full intellectual and physical potential. For the next generation, a sustainable future is the only kind of future worth living.”

Justin Forsyth, Chief Executive, Save the Children, adds: “Together, Save the Children and Unilever are helping to save children’s lives through improving access to life-saving health care, training health workers and delivering high-impact nutrition programmes. Through Project Sunlight, our ground breaking work together continues to save lives.”

Tim Hunter, UNICEF Deputy Director of Fundraising, concludes: “Unilever’s support to UNICEF’s sanitation programmes has already made a lasting impact on the lives of thousands of children, and the funding from this new initiative will help reach a further 500,000 children. By supporting us in providing handwashing facilities and promoting group handwashing programmes across 3,500 schools in India, Project Sunlight will be helping these children to have a healthy start in life.”
