Take Climate Action

Ensuring the protection of the world’s forests is a huge challenge. Unilever believes the products we all enjoy should be made in a way that does not harm our forests. We already source 55% of agricultural raw materials sustainably and have committed to achieving zero net deforestation. This year, we are also supporting the work of WWF to help protect one million trees in Brazil and Indonesia - two of the world’s most threatened forest areas. You can be a part of this. By signing our pledge, we’ll help protect one of these trees on your behalf.

Climate Change is real and it’s happening now

Small acts can make a big difference. We're hard at work to help tackle climate change and put an end to deforestation, once and for all. But we can't do it alone! Find out some of the ways you can get involved to help create a bright future.

Farewell to the Forest

We’re not ready to say farewell to our forests

In a city, trees and green spaces provide much needed peace and tranquillity from the hustle and bustle of work life and traffic. On warm summer days, we flock to green spaces and appreciate every second spent in the cooling shade of our trees, as our children play on the grass. In the city, we wouldn’t dream of cutting down a healthy tree, so why is this different in our rainforests?

Palm Oil

Sustainable palm oil can benefit everyone

You might not know it, but you probably don’t go a day without using palm oil. From shampoo to ice cream, half the items on our supermarket shelves contain palm oil – we cook with it, clean with it and even put it on our skin. The good news? Unilever has changed the way it sources palm oil so that everyone can reap the benefits. We now source 100% of our European palm oil sustainably and by 2020 all of our palm oil will be from certified, traceable sources.

The damage resulting could be catastrophic and irreversible, affecting us all. This year’s climate summit in Paris could be the answer to a global agreement for how to tackle climate change – but we must all take action to ensure this happens!
