Tackle the climate crisis

Unilever joins ‘World’s To Do List’ campaign in support of UN Global Goals

Together with other global companies, we are taking part in the World’s To Do List campaign to show support and action towards the achievement of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development-- a plan adopted by all UN member states in 2015 to end poverty, conquer inequality and tackle the climate crisis by 2030. This activation is part of Global Goals Week - an annual event to mark the anniversary of the Global Goals during the UN General Assembly.

This major awareness campaign, developed with Karmarama, is spearheaded by Project Everyone and a group of companies known as the Global Goals Business Avengers, comprised of Arm, Avanti, Commvault, Diageo, DPDgroup, Google, Mars, NTT, Reckitt, Salesforce, SAP, Unilever and Wood. These companies represent over 700,000 employees, with a combined social media reach of over 100 million. Each company is the champion of one of the 17 Global Goals and is actively working to raise awareness and take actions within their own organisations to help achieve them.

World’s To Do List sticky notes

The World’s To Do List campaign brings to life why the Goals are the World’s To Do List for people and planet using sticky notes – a set of playful yet profound messages which re-imagine the Goals as a series of short actionable ‘to do’s’, setting a clear reminder that we have the plan to fix the world’s problems, we just need the action to get it done.

The world faces enormous challenges, from runaway climate change to hunger and dire poverty. Interconnected issues that will not be solved unless we take collective action – across businesses, governments and civil society. The Global Goals give us a clear framework to help us tackle these challenges, and deliver a thriving planet and society by 2030. We are committed to playing our part, and are hopeful that we’ll collectively cross items off this critically important To Do list.

Our To Do List

Here in the Philippines, our to do list includes joining fight to end world hunger (Goal 2) with the help of Knorr as a leading force for good nutrition among Filipino families. Through its Lutong Nanay Program, Knorr addresses the two common barriers to proper nutrition—lack of knowledge and limited budget by educating moms about proper eating habits and the importance of nutrition. So far, the brand’s efforts have made a positive impact on the lives of 2.5 million Filipino children who were previously undernourished.

Another priority in our to do list is to ensure clean water and sanitation for all (Goal 6). At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have repurposed our manufacturing lines to produce Lifebuoy Sanitizers in order to address the country’s increasing need for effective hygiene products that help prevent the spread of diseases. Moreover, as part of our Malasakit for All program, we have donated 1 million Lifebuoy hygiene products to hospitals and communities to help protect families from diseases and to keep frontliners safe and clean.

We are also advocating to create a waste-free world (Goal 12) through Misis Walastik -- our grassroots environmental movement that promotes proper waste management in three easy steps—kolek, kilo, and kita. To date, the Misis Walastik program has engaged over 100,000 households in over 400 barangays across the country.

Taking Action for a Better Future for All

For some, solving the world’s issues may sound like a huge and uneasy feat, but with a clear plan and desire to take action, we can leave a better future for all.
