We are Unilever.

We are 127,000 people across the world, we are over 400 brand names in 190 countries, we are a global company with a global purpose.

A group of diverse people

We are driven by our purpose: to make sustainable living commonplace

It’s why we come to work. It’s why we’re in business. It’s how we inspire exceptional performance.

Back in 1883, Sunlight Soap was launched in the UK by our founder – it was pioneering, it was innovative and it had a purpose: to popularise cleanliness and bring it within reach of ordinary people. That was sustainable living, even then. We now have over 400 brands and we are still driven by purpose.

We want to do more good for our planet and our society – not just less harm. We want to act on the social and environmental issues facing the world and we want to enhance people’s lives with our products.

We’ve been pioneers, innovators and future-makers for over 120 years – we plan to continue doing that. And we plan to do it sustainably.
