1 Unilever Sustainable Living Plan
“In order to put the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan into context, let me tell you a little about Unilever as a company and a bit of history about our sustainable growth story.“ SHOW VIDEO “Sustainability Journey to date” (then delete slides 3-13 and move direct to slide 14 “Facing a future of increased demand and resource scarcity”). Objective This presentation covers all the material to present the Sustainable Living Plan. It is suitable for external use. You should not show all the slides as it will be too long! Choose from the selection. Always show: the business case, the three key features and three big goals. You can edit the slides and add new ones about your local situation. Use the video to introduce Unilever: “Sustainability Journey to date” We recommend starting your presentation by showing the video “Sustainability Journey to Date Feb 2011” (2 mins 43 secs) available on online resource centre  https://sustainablelivingdownloads.unilever.com This film covers Unilever, our brands and the way sustainability has helped to drive the business in the past. You will need speakers for the sound. If you show the video, delete slides 3-13, you don’t need both! If you cannot show video, or have limited time, show a selection of charts 3-13. “Value Chain” video This popular video was designed for employees but goes down well with external audiences. You should say that we use it with our employees to explain what a life cycle is. Use it at slide 34 when you first show the greenhouse gas footprint. Say “Sustainable Living Plan” not “USLP” Do not use the abbreviation “USLP” on slides or in your speech. If you need to shorten, use “Sustainable Living Plan” or “The Plan”. To add new pictures into the rounded edge boxes, see instructions at end. 1

5 The business case for sustainability

The business case for growing our company sustainably is compelling:·        - A growing number of consumers are asking for it       - Retailers increasingly demand it - It fuels our product innovation        - It helps us grow our markets around the world     - And, in many cases, it saves money 5

7 Consumers want it Sustainably sourced products are growing
Consumers around the world want reassurance that the products they buy are sustainably sourced and protect the earth’s natural resources. A growing number are choosing to buy brands such as Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM Lipton tea, Ben & Jerry’s Fairtrade ice cream and ‘Small & Mighty’ concentrated laundry detergents.

11 volume of total sourcing (%)
Our top 10 agricultural raw materials volume of total sourcing (%) It has taken us over 10 years to make just 10% of these crops sustainable. The plan commits us to make more than 10 times that volume sustainable over the next 10 years. Source: % total Unilever agricultural volume 2009 11

12 Sustainable Sourcing Targets
Our targets for Sustainable Sourcing: By 2020 we will source 100% of our agricultural raw materials sustainably (50% by 2015) We will focus first on our top ten agricultural raw material groups (around 70% of our raw material volumes). This includes dairy Cage-free eggs: We aim to move to 100% cage-free eggs for all our products, including Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and Hellmann’s, Amora and Calvé mayonnaises

13 Animal Welfare Animal Welfare is included in the Unilever Sustainable Agriculture Code. This code covers practices that all our suppliers should strive to achieve. We encourage our suppliers to participate in initiatives to define good animal welfare practices and improvement programmes in the countries and/or regions where they are sourcing, processing and marketing products from animal origin. We will include animal welfare criteria for eggs and dairy ingredients in our sustainable sourcing programme. Our long-term ambition is to purchase all our animal-derived ingredients from sustainable sources.

14 Good Eggs for Hellmann’s
