Unilever Food Solutions' commitment to sustainable packaging
When it comes to plastic use, we at Unilever Food Solutions believe less is more. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan continues to be our guiding light as we work towards the big commitment we have made to reduce plastic.
By 2020: we will reduce the waste associated with the disposal of our products by 50%.
By 2025: 100% of our plastic packaging will be reusable, recyclable or compostable. And 25% of our plastic packaging will be made from post-consumer recycled (or PCR) plastics. We will halve our use of virgin plastic by reducing our absolute use of plastic packaging by more than 100,000 tonnes and accelerating our use of recycled plastic. Help collect and process more plastic packaging than we sell. As well as reducing our use of plastic, we are committed to helping create a circular economy for plastics. This means taking action at all points in the plastic cycle.
Since 2017, we have been transforming our approach to plastic packaging with this three-part framework:
- NO PLASTIC
- LESS PLASTIC
- BETTER PLASTIC
All Unilever Food Solutions products will from now on carry the "please recycle" logo, inviting our customers and consumers to come on this journey with us. We are also continuing to work closely with our suppliers and partners to help create recycling solutions where these do not already exist.
