Growing sustainably with customers

  • Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do in Customer Development.

  • The Living Project, a collaboration between Walmart and Unilever, inspires shoppers with small actions they can take to live a better life, in a better world, without sacrificing time and money. The programme offers shoppers solutions to help them take small actions that make a big difference.

  • Through the Shakti programme, in India, we have expanded a direct distribution network of micro-entrepreneurs who sell our products in their small local shops, doubling their household income in the process while broadening Unilever’s reach at the same time.
