Unilever has positively impacted millions of lives since launching the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan in 2010 as households all around the world are seeing how small actions can create a bright future. Unilever believes people and businesses have the power to effect change on a global scale. Since 2013, Enactus and Unilever have been working together through the Unilever Bright Future Project Accelerator (UBFPA), which provides Enactus United States teams an opportunity to take action to create sustainable, scalable solutions that help alleviate hunger in America. This year the UBFPA will continue to focus on alleviating hunger while also addressing areas of sustainable nutrition.
Unilever defines sustainable nutrition as producing nutritious food with less impact on the environment and less waste, benefitting the livelihoods of food producers and improving the nutrition and wellbeing of consumers.
Our partnership positively impacted nearly 47,000 lives last year alone and we are excited to improve even more lives in 2017- 2018 academic year.
Unilever recently introduced the five pillars of nutrition: good for people, good for the planet; health and wellbeing; food fortification, nutritious cooking; reducing waste. The focus of the Unilever’s sustainable nutrition areas is to develop food that taste good, do good, and don’t cost the earth.
On any given day, 2.5 billion people use Unilever products to feel good, look good and get more out of life – giving us a unique opportunity to build a brighter future.
