Sustainable Palm Oil

Unilever is playing a leading role in the transformation of the palm oil industry, helping it move towards sustainable cultivation.

While palm oil has many positive attributes, there is a strong link between the way in which it is grown and deforestation. Deforestation is a major contributor of climate change, accounting for up to 15% of global emissions. Unilever is determined to work with the palm oil industry to drive deforestation out of its supply chain.

"Halting deforestation is our end goal and this is what we work towards"
