Unilever re-commits to recyclable packaging
Unilever has committed to ensuring all its plastic packaging globally is either fully reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
The commitment includes Unilever products sold in Australia and New Zealand.
Brands within Unilever’s portfolio are Lipton, Dove, Marmite, Streets, Ben & Jerry’s, Flora, Lynx, Jif and multiple other brands sold within supermarkets across the world.
Uilever has decided to renew its membership to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation which encourages organisations and businesses to re-think the way they do things to better help the world.
Unilever also said it will be investing in creating, and then sharing with the industry, a technical solution to recycle multi-layed sachets.
Chief Executive Officer of Unilever, Paul Polman, said if the industry wants to keep benefitting from using plastic it needs to do more to ensure its use is managed responsibly.
“We hope these commitments will encourage others in the industry to make collective progress towards ensuring that all of our plastic packaging is fully recyclable and recycled,” Polman said.
