Related Tags

Given the challenges the world is facing with rising income disparity and gender inequality, combined with the rapid rise in the global population, there is an urgent need for the public and private sectors to jointly address these critical issues.

Unilever launched its Sustainable Living Plan in 2010, and one of its core goals is to enhance the livelihoods of the marginalised communities across the world. As a result of its scale, Unilever believes that it has a unique opportunity to include millions of people into its business model, from working with smallholder farmers and small-scale retailers to engaging women as growers, distributors, and employees. In this way, it can promote strong, healthy communities and transform the lives of low income families and communities across the world.
