Unilever will convene a live online debate on sustainability and corporate stewardship between top environmental leaders on Tuesday, November 22. The event marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan, an aggressive commitment that sets out to, among other goals, halve the company’s environmental impact while doubling the size of its business.


The debate—“Sustainable Living: Mainstream or Pipedream?”—will extend Unilever’s innovative model of decoupling corporate financial and environmental performance to the consumer mainstream.
  • How can consumers be better incentivized by companies to change their behaviors toward sustainable living?
  • How can companies bring consumer product use and disposal into their life cycle considerations and affect sustainability once products leave store shelves?
WHEN Tuesday, November 22

9:00am – 10:00am EST
