Droughts, floods, crop failures, disrupted and displaced communities and impacted economies - the potential threats posed by climate change are significant and urgent. But while tackling climate change presents serious challenges, it also offers enormous opportunities.
Taking action on climate change is a necessity - but it’s also a chance to grow our business by responding to opportunities across our value chain.
We want to play our part in the global movement to create a low-carbon economy, so we’re increasing our use of renewable energy as we move towards becoming carbon positive in our operations by 2030. We’ve also set ourselves a science-based target* to halve the greenhouse gas (GHG) impacts of our products across their lifecycle by 2030.**
The GHG pillar of our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) contributes to a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), primarily: Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7); Climate Action (SDG 13) and Life on Land (SDG 15).
