We remain committed to achieving our vision of making sustainable living commonplace by serving our societies and consumers, contributing to their social and economic development, operating responsible supply chains and fostering a virtuous circle of growth.”

 In the Gulf region, Unilever has been recognized in several platforms for its extensive work in the field of sustainability.
