The Unilever Compass is our strategy to deliver growth that is consistent, competitive, profitable and responsible.

Our business simply will not prosper without a healthy planet and society.

We’ve set out an ambitious sustainability agenda to tackle the issues that our consumers and stakeholders care deeply about – such as climate change, plastic pollution and inequality.

We’re harnessing our brands, our people and our partners to create lasting positive impact – on the world and our business.

Find out more about our progress so far.

Respect human rights

The world changes fast – and some of those changes put human rights in jeopardy. In our own operations, and through all our business relationships, we have a deep and unfaltering commitment to respect and promote all internationally recognised human rights.
