We’ve been pioneers, innovators and future-makers for over 120 years.
The success we’ve achieved means that, today, 2.5 billion people will use our products to feel good, look good and get more out of life.
Our brands give us a unique opportunity to create positive change, to grow our business, and to achieve our purpose of making sustainable living commonplace.
What we do
We make products that people love – and that make a difference.
Nutritious foods. Household care essentials. Indulgent ice creams. Refreshing teas. Luxurious shampoos. Affordable, disease-combating soaps... and many more.
In fact, we make around 400 much-loved brands. Shoppers buy them in more than 190 countries.
That means you’ll find at least one of our products in seven out of ten households on the planet. And we want every one of those products to make a positive impact on the lives of the people who buy them.
What we make
Many of our brands are familiar favourites all over the world.
Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Rexona, Hellmann’s, Omo – these are just some of the 12 Unilever brands with an annual turnover of more than €1 billion.
We use insight and innovation to make sure these brands perform for consumers.
And we make sure that our brands take action on the issues that consumers care about.
Why we do it
We want our business to flourish, and we know that our success depends on others flourishing around us.
That's why our purpose is to make sustainable living commonplace, and why sustainable, long-term growth is at the heart of our business model.
Follow our progress in our Sustainable Living Report, including how we’re meeting our three big goals:
- Helping more than a billion people to improve their health and wellbeing.
- Halving the environmental footprint of our products.
- Sourcing 100% of our agricultural raw materials sustainably and enhancing the livelihoods of people across our value chain.
The world doesn’t stand still – and neither do we.
Not only do we embrace change, we also seek to make it.
That applies to our brands – which achieve positive change through their purpose and value chains.
It also applies to our business – which we are making future-fit, faster and more flexible.
Our 155,000 employees in more than 100 countries are key to our success. They deliver our growth strategy and represent our purpose in action. Their insight and innovation drive us to anticipate and act on the trends shaping our industry and our world.
Together, we’re redefining the future of work – more diverse, more inclusive, highly skilled and high-performing. And as a company, we’re redefining the way business is done.
That’s how we'll make sustainable living commonplace.
