Making sustainable living commonplace
Great products from their range of more than 400 brands give us a unique place in the lives of people all over the world.
When consumers reach for nutritionally balanced foods or indulgent ice creams, affordable soaps that combat disease, luxurious shampoos or everyday household care products, there’s a good chance the brand they pick is one of theirs. Seven out of every ten households around the world contain at least one Unilever product, and their range of world-leading, household-name brands includes Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Axe, Hellmann’s and Omo. Trusted local brands designed to meet the specific needs of consumers in their home market include Blue Band, Pureit and Suave.
Whatever the brand, wherever it is bought, they’re working to ensure that it plays a part in helping fulfil their purpose as a business – making sustainable living commonplace.
Working with others to build a brighter future

That means working with others, including their suppliers, consumers, governments, NGOs and other businesses to help create the major changes that are needed to address the biggest challenges facing their world.
Their vision is to grow their business, while decoupling their environmental footprint from their growth and increasing their positive social impact.
Sense of purpose

They continue to believe that business must make a positive contribution to addressing the challenges the world faces and that this is the only way a business will succeed. In 2009, They launched The Compass – their strategy for sustainable growth, setting out their determination to build a sustainable business for the long term.
The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, launched in 2010, laid the blueprint for achieving this strategy. They continue to work towards the ambitious targets they have set theirselves for halving their environmental impact, improving the health and wellbeing of 1 billion people, and enhancing the livelihoods of millions.
They will grow their business by building on their strengths – combining their scale and expertise with their understanding of consumers in diverse markets to continue providing brands and services that people want and need. Their sustainable business model is making a difference to millions of people’s lives and to their environmental impact, and They will keep working to make these contributions greater. They’re also already seeing evidence that it is strengthening their business by helping to drive growth and trust, and reduce risk and cost.
Purpose values principles
Their Corporate Purpose states that to succeed requires “the highest standards of corporate behaviour towards everyone they work with, the communities they touch, and the environment on which they have an impact.”
Always working with integrity
Conducting their operations with integrity and with respect for the many people, organisations and environments their business touches has always been at the heart of their corporate responsibility.
They aim to make a positive impact in many ways: through their brands, their commercial operations and relationships, through voluntary contributions, and through the various other ways in which they engage with society.
They’re also committed to continuously improving the way they manage their environmental impacts and are working towards their longer-term goal of developing a sustainable business.
Setting out their aspirations
Their Corporate Purpose sets out their aspirations in running their business. It’s underpinned by their Code of Business Principles which describes the operational standards that everyone at Unilever follows, wherever they are in the world. The Code also supports their approach to governance and corporate responsibility.
Working with others
Thye want to work with suppliers who have values similar to their own and work to the same standards they do. their Supplier Code, aligned to their own Code of Business Principles, comprises eleven principles covering business integrity and responsibilities relating to employees, consumers and the environment.
They’ve built a strategy to help us achieve their purpose of making sustainable living commonplace.
Their strategic focus
To realise their vision they have invested in a long-term strategy of categories and brands that deliver growth to the benefit of all stakeholders.
Unilever is a business founded on a sense of purpose, and their unique heritage still shapes the way they do business today.
Making sustainable living commonplace
In the 1890s, William Hesketh Lever, founder of Lever Brothers, wrote down his ideas for Sunlight Soap – his revolutionary new product that helped popularise cleanliness and hygiene in Victorian England.
It was “to make cleanliness commonplace; to lessen work for women; to foster health and contribute to personal attractiveness, that life may be more enjoyable and rewarding for the people who use their products”.
That sense of purpose and mission has always been part of Unilever’s culture. In the 21st century, they’re still helping people to look good, feel good and get more out of life – and our purpose as a business is ‘making sustainable living commonplace’.

Innovation in Unilever
Innovation is the engine of Unilever’s growth; the lifeblood of their business. their future depends on their ability to bring bigger & better innovations to market more quickly than their competitors.
Their RD leadership
Innovation has been the backbone of Unilever’s brands for well over 100 years.
Distinctive new products
Their mission – to develop brands that help people look good, feel good and get more out of life – is founded on the expertise of their scientists and technologists who find innovative solutions to current and future consumer needs, and deliver these through their portfolio of branded goods.
Their track record is second to none, and their philosophy of using leading-edge R&D to drive world-class innovation can be seen at every stage in their history, from the development of vitamin-enriched margarine during the depression of the 1930s to the launch last year of toothpaste containing optical-effect technology which instantly makes teeth appear whiter.
They have always focussed on attracting the very best scientists and technologists to work with us, and today they have an integrated global R&D organisation that numbers more than 6,000. In addition, their commitment to open innovation means that they collaborate with many more R&D experts and institutions all over the world. Each year they spend around €1bn on R&D, and they typically file between 250 and 350 new patent applications annually.
Unilever’s R&D expertise is uniquely rich, as it spans the breadth of Foods and Home & Personal Care innovations. In the years ahead they will continue to draw on this unique expertise to develop big innovations that add vitality to the lives of consumers all around the world whilst continuing their research into the next generation of consumer goods. The best is yet to come!

- Chief Research & Development Officer
Research development in Unilever
Innovation is the engine of their growth and their lifeblood. Their future depends on their ability to bring bigger & better innovations to market quickly.
At the heart of their business
In a fast changing market, the importance of innovation is only going to grow. Research and Development (R&D) plays a key role in delivering proprietary breakthrough innovations. At Unilever, R&D is treated as an investment aligned closely with their overall business strategy.
Innovations with proven consumer benefits
Around the world, health and vitality are amongst the most important consumer needs, and people expect science and technology to help them achieve their goals. They seek to build R&D capacity in all of their key markets, to gain greater consumer understanding and offer solutions close to their consumers.
The purchasing power of developing and emerging markets already exceeds that of America, Europe and Japan combined─its rate of economic growth is double. The developing and emerging markets are also home to the fastest growing over-60 population.
In the future, these markets will account for the majority of their business (in 2009: 50% of their sales). Their unparalleled footprint and strong history in these regions, as well as extensive local knowledge, means we’re well placed to deliver products that meet the needs of these populations as they grow in size, wealth and aspiration.
A changing landscape
As they look ahead, they face many challenges. Competition is fierce and increasingly global, so it’s crucial that they constantly introduce new products and improve existing ones. Key to all this is the discovery and application of new proprietary technologies that address un-met consumer needs and/or improve product functionality.
Their global R&D network covers all regions, and they have invested strongly in building large R&D centres in China (Shanghai) and India (Bangalore and Mumbai), Latin America (Sao Paolo) and Africa (Durban), ensuring they are networked with their established centres in Europe and the US.
The science behind success
The common thread running through all their R&D activities is a direct connection between science, technology and consumer needs.
Products that people want
Whether their researchers are looking at potential uses of emerging areas of science, or their chefs and product developers are exploring how to make a packet of soup taste better, they’re always asking themselves what the benefit is for the consumer.
Their R&D experts are constantly developing innovations in nutrition, hygiene and personal care.
Striking a balance
As competition increases, the importance of rapid innovation becomes ever greater. But scientific breakthroughs can’t always be converted overnight into innovations preferred by consumers. R&D is all about finding the balance between long-term fundamental research and medium to short-term technological applications of the research results to deliver market-ready products.
Consumers in the twenty-first century are also citizens, with social and environmental concerns increasingly at the top of their minds. But they don’t want to trade product efficacy for social and environmental benefits. They expect us to provide solutions that meet both these needs.
This requires in-depth scientific and technological expertise. They are working on an environmental metrics programme to quantitatively monitor and improve emissions of greenhouse gases (e.g. CO2), waste, water use in water stressed countries and sustainable sourcing of materials for all their innovations around the world.
Raising the bar
Innovation never stops. In today’s globalised world the challenges and opportunities arise ever faster. Where R&D was once a local activity, they now have a closely linked global network of R&D centres, to build and use their expertise in the most effective and efficient way.
Their R&D expertise is applied across Foods and Home and Personal Care categories, again, maximising the return on the investment in R&D. Besides their internal R&D capabilities, they build expertise with external partners as well to deliver more breakthroughs, better solutions for consumers and faster growth for Unilever.
Their RD locations
Innovation is right at the heart of Unilever, and their dynamic R&D environment attracts top-class scientists who enjoy the best of both worlds – being at the cutting edge of technology and seeing their work deliver real benefits daily.

- The opening ended with the world’s first Ice Cream Olympics, symbolising the R&D centre’s drive to be the best in the world.
Unilever opens global Centre of Excellence to develop new products
Vlaardingen, 4 March 2008 – Unilever R&D today opened the Centre of Excellence Structured Emulsions in Vlaardingen, the Netherlands.
Developing new products
This global technology centre will focus on new product development for margarines, spreads, mayonnaise, salad dressings and dairy cream alternatives. The centre is a multi-site organisation, employing 225 R&D professionals in Vlaardingen (NL), Dijon (FR) and Englewood Cliffs (USA). The Centre of Excellence (CoE) Structured Emulsions will contribute to Unilever growth by delivering new product innovations. Furthermore, the CoE will contribute to the operating margin of Unilever by compensating for the rise in commodity costs through smarter use of ingredients and application of new technologies.
The new R&D centre will focus on developing innovative products that provide the natural goodness of oils (e.g. essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, vitamins), healthier choices (e.g. products with minimised saturated and trans fats; low-calorie options) and functional foods (products with added functional ingredients for additional health benefits). It will counter the rise in commodity costs, for example for rapeseed oil, by using alternative ingredients like citrus fibres and novel product structuring techniques.
To deliver these innovations and cost savings, the CoE Structured Emulsions will aim to develop world class technical capabilities in the areas of fat technology and emulsification. Furthermore, the centre will also host Unilever’s European product development centre for Foodsolutions, Unilever’s Foodservice business, and the European packaging technology centre with a technology and material focus on tubs, pots and glass packaging.
Carla Hilhorst, Director of the new Centre of Excellence, stated: “With the opening of their Centre of Excellence Structured Emulsions they are establishing a world-class R&D capability that will lead to more winning innovations across the globe. With R&D experts from 20 countries they have a deep expertise and a wide perspective which will allow us to deliver taste, health and convenience for consumers around the world.
The CoE opening ended with the unveiling of the world’s highest emulsifier sculpture, more than 3 meters tall and weighing 10 tons, designed by the R&D team together with its external partners Danisco and Inaxi.
The choice of material for the sculpture was linked to the expertise of the Centre of Excellence Structured Emulsions: an emulsifier is a small, but crucial ‘chaperone’ that brings together water & oil to make stable products: emulsions like margarine, dressings and dairy cream alternatives. This world’s highest emulsifier sculpture served to symbolise the ambition for the new R&D centre: to be the ‘world champion’ in structured emulsions and their applications in tasty, healthy and convenient foods.
Unilever makes some of the best known brands in the world, and those brands are used by 2 billion people every day.
Blue Band is a daily source of essential fats and vitamins that help children to grow, develop and thrive.
Healthy growth development
Their margarine, Blue Band is made from high quality vegetable oils, so it is an important source of essential fats and vitamins A, D and E for which there are not many other dietary sources. A thin layer of spread on bread every day makes a big contribution to the healthy growth and development of the whole family.
Growing children need to spread margarine
Recent international nutrition guidelines from WHO recognize the fact that people should minimize bad fats and consume sufficient good fats to stay fit and healthy. Experts also agree that for growing children, spreading soft margarine on bread is much better than spreading butter – which is full of saturated fat – and better than not spreading anything at all.
The right breakfast
Eating a nutritious breakfast in the morning with the right amount and the right kind of nutrients has been proven to enhance children’s ability to concentrate at school. A breakfast consisting of a slice of bread, spread with low-fat margarine plus a glass of low-fat milk is more balanced – and healthier – than bread with butter or sweetened cereals or breakfast snacks.
Improving childrens nutrition around the world
Unilever has established a global partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme with the shared aim of improving children’s nutrition around the world. In support of this global agreement, Blue Band established a partnership with UN WFP and pledge to contribute to the effort to feed hungry through Blue Band’s Ramadan sales. Unilever believes that every child deserves the nutrition and hygiene he or she needs to develop to their full physical and mental potential. Making a contribution to solving this problem is in line with their Vitality Life Goals and a priority in their corporate responsibility strategy.
Goodness of Blue Band
Unilever is the world’s leading manufacturer of margarine. Blue Band was launched in Pakistan more than 20 years ago. It is a good source of 7 essential vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, B12, D3 and E) that are necessary for healthy growth and development, both for children and adults.
Did you know
Their margarine helps you to grow well and live well!
More than 90 percent of medical specialists dealing with children say that children need fat in their diet for healthy growth and development.
Essential fats are building blocks for the body, but can’t be made by the body and must come from the diet. Margarine is a good source of essential fats.
Nearly nine out of every ten primary school teachers interviewed for a recent study say that bad eating habits affects not only healthy growth and development, but also performance at school.

Clear stands for confidence. It accentuates a personality that is distinct, charming and competitive. The Pakistani youth today aspires to be free from inhibitions and to pursue excellence in life. Since 2007, Clear has been making sure that it doesn’t let something like dandruff shatter this confidence.

Our vision for you – our consumer – is to provide a healthy, deeply nourished scalp which has a natural resistance against dandruff and is the foundation for your strong and beautiful hair, so that you feel attractive, confident and ready to boldly engage the world!
Clear has a gender-based dual architecture because it understands that the male scalp has a unique set of requirements and needs specialized care in order to combat dandruff and other scalp related problems. That is why Clear, in addition to its unisex range, has a distinct range of shampoos specifically for men – the first of its kind to be ever brought to Pakistani men.
They range for women includes:

Clear for Men with CLEAR TECH 2.0 is specifically designed for the male scalp to:
- Cut Grease**
- Decrease Hairfall***
- *Visible flakes, regular use **Reduces excessive oil from scalp and hair.Due to breakage, comparing to non-conditioning shampoo, regular use
Did You Know
- Men have greater sebum secretion in their scalps that leads to dandruff which generic anti dandruff shampoos cannot remove. This is why Clear was the first in Pakistan to launch a male range of shampoos with CLEAR TECH 2.0 that is specifically designed for the male scalp.
- 52% of Pakistani males suffer from dandruff – a cause of unhealthy hair and lack of confidence.
- Both men and women rate dandruff as one of their top hair and scalp related problems.
- Dandruff is a recurring problem and ordinary shampoos only temporarily wash away dandruff flakes. Clear shampoo with CLEAR TECH removes dandruff*, cuts grease** and decreases hairfall***. *Visible flakes, regular use **Reduces excessive oil from calp and hair ***Due to breakage, comparing to non-conditioning shampoo, regular use
- Clear Hairfall Defense with CLEAR TECH is proven to reduce hairfall by 98%^ ^Based on independent study conducted in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam in 2004 and Sri Lanka in 2003.
- Using hair styling products can leave your hair dull and damaged. Use Clear with CLEAR TECH to gently remove buildup and permanently remove dandruff* from the first wash. *Visible flakes, regular use
- The real culprit of Dandruff is a fungus (bacteria) called “Malassezia” that lives on the scalps of most healthy adults. But sometimes it grows out of control causing irritation that leads to increased cell turnover. The result is a large number of dead skin cells. As the cells fall off, they tend to clump together with oil from the hair and scalp, making them appear white, flaky and all too visible.
- Dandruff is a scalp disorder which is marked by itching and excessive flaking of the scalp.
- Scalp is skin and as such contains the same key structures as the rest of their skin. Different people have different scalp skin & needs. Only by deeply penetrating and nourishing the scalp from within, Dandruff will be eliminated and not come back.
- Sweating, increased oil production, hormonal fluctuations, stress, UV radiation, infrequent washing, diets, food allergies, pollution etc. also contribute to the development of Dandruff.
- Physical and mental stress, both contribute to dandruff and worsen dandruff problems. So it is important to take good care of yourself and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Domex Toilet Expert kills all sickness causing germs

In her role as champion of the home; the home is her domain and therefore under her protection. Protection against the unclean and here she could really do with some help. Help to be safe from the unseen danger of germs and bad bacteria.
The germ threat
Germs bring sickness and disease into the home. They sit on surfaces, they hide in corners and cracks –– they lie in wait. Germs among other places also originate from the toilet and threaten the health of the family, and cause diseases such as cholera, diarrhea and typhoid.
Germs cannot be seen. They are as likely to be there on a spotless surface as in some damp and dirty place. Just because it looks clean doesn’t mean it is clean – not hygienically clean. Upon flushing, germs actually escape from the toilet bowl and travel up to 3-4 feet to land on toothbrushes, towels and other surfaces. Germs breed fast. A couple of germs can become a million in a just a few hours. So germs are an unseen, rapidly breeding danger.
The Germ Kill Expert
Unfortunately for the germs, their days of reigning and disease-spreading in the toilet are over. Domex has entered Pakistan and is causing the extermination of toilet germs all over the country.
