The fight for climate change will be made easier as more people and companies take action. Companies account for the majority of global emissions. Therefore despite being overshadowed, corporate action is essential. This is why Unilever’s action this past week is a huge step in the right direction.
Unilever recently pledged to make all of its products biodegradable by 2030. This will have an immense expositive impact on our environment. The company makes over 70,000 products. By making these more eco-friendly and less polluting, there will be a significant reduction in waste that ends up in our ecosystems. Unilever also has a lot of influence. The company is worthier 100 billion dollars and has over 60,000 suppliers. Unilever’s actions will hopefully push other companies to make changes as well.
Unilever aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2039. This is part of the company’s comprehensive plan to help with tackling climate change. A special climate & nature fund will also be set up by them, with which they plan to put in $1.1 billion dollars. Transparency is also being empathized. The company wants to show the amount of carbon emissions attributable to each of its products and will do this by forcing suppliers to disclose the carbon cost of their materials.
Companies like Unilever are important because they are making real changes. Many brands pander to people by standing in solidarity with issues but rarely ever put their money where their mouth is. We all need to open our purses, companies and people alike, be the change we want to see. Join Physis today to make a difference with your money.
