Unilever needs no landfills anymore
Unilever- multinational food and non-food – reports that they are the first industrial group of this size, avoiding landfill on this scale. It was not only a matter of saving money, there were also created hundreds of jobs with this approach.
In its new strategy, Unilever is preventing all waste leads.
For non-hazardous waste streams that still remain, the company invents high-quality solutions all over the world. In Ivory Coast residuals get a new life as a building material. In India it is processed into fertilizers for the local community. In China, the waste is set as a raw material for the production of bricks and roads.
Sustainable consumer packages are the big challenge for the near future. Unilevers ambition is to make new packaging that no longer end up in the landfill or incinerator.
With it’s 400 brands, you might know Unilever. Ever heard of Dove, Axe, Omo, the delicious Magnum IceCreams or Lipton Tea’s? This world-player wants to set the trend for a sustainable world. Let’s hope millions of industries will follow.
