Reporting Our Progress

Reporting Our Progress

Regular and transparent reporting

We are committed to communicating our performance regularly and transparently.

Unilever has a long-standing commitment to reporting on our progress each year. We have been reporting on our sustainability performance since 1996.

We have two main channels for reporting on the commitments set out in the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan as well as wider topics of interest to our stakeholders:

  • Annual Report and Accounts: We include a summary of our sustainable living performance in our Annual Report and Accounts 2013 published in March 2014 (see pages 22-25). See Download below.

  • Online Unilever Sustainable Living Report for 2013: Housed in the Sustainable Living section of the global Unilever website, this is the principal means of reporting our performance against the targets set out in our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan. The report was published at the end of April 2014.

We present our approach to reporting, including independent assessments and commentary on the progress we are making with our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan. Assurance of the Unilever Green Sustainability Bond is also available here.

We annually assess our progress against three indices: UN Global Compact, GRI and MDG. Updates on our performance against these indices will be available in this section at the end of June 2014.
