We to help people
feel good look good and get more out of life with brands and services that are
good for them and good for others. We will inspire people to take small everyday
actions that can add up to a big difference for the world. We will develop new
ways of doing business that will allow us to double the size of our company while
reducing our environmental impact. Our Heritage in India In the summer of 1888,
visitors to the Kolkata harbour noticed crates full of Sunlight soap bars,
embossed with the words "Made in England by Lever Brothers". With it began an
era of marketing branded Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG). In 1931,
Unilever set up its first Indian subsidiary, Hindustan Vanaspati Manufacturing
Company, followed by Lever Brothers India Limited (1933) and United Traders
Limited (1935). In November 1956, these three companies merged to form
Hindustan Hindustan Lever Limited. In June 2007, the company was renamed
Hindustan Unilever Limited. Sustainable Living Unilever Sustainable Living Plan
aims to help everyone enjoy a good quality of life while respecting the planet. We
have set ourselves three big goals to achieve by 2020: Halve the environmental
footprint of our products, Help more than 1 billion people take action to improve
their health and well-being, Source 100% of our agricultural raw materials
sustainably. HUL Key Sustainability Impacts: Lifebuoy soap had reached 30
million people with handwashing programmes in 2010-11 alone. Pureit now
protects 30 million consumers in India. We now have over twenty three thousand
climate friendly freezers in our fleet. In 2011, 60% of tomatoes used in Kissan
Ketchup in India were from sustainable sources. A total of 69 Tea estates in
Assam, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu have been certified 'Sustainable Estates' by
the Rainforest Alliance till the end of 2011. Project Shakti has forty five
thousand Shakti entrepreneurs (and thirty thousand Shaktimaan) in fifteen states
across India. Kwality Walls mobile vending operations provide entrepreneurship
opportunities to over 6,500 migrant labourers across India. By 2015, we expect
hundred billion litres of water to be harvested, one million people to benefit in
180 + villages in 17 districts across India from our water conservation projects.
In 2011, we have reduced CO2 emissions (per tonne of production) by 14.7%,
water use by 21.5%, and waste by 52.8% in our factories, over 2008 baseline.
Rainwater harvesting has been implemented in more than 50% of our own units.
Five Hindustan Unilever sites have the potential to return more water to the
ground than is being consumed by them. More than 75% of our manufacturing
sites are zero discharge sites.
