Sustainable Agriculture Programme Coordinator - Articles and news items
In November 2009, Unilever launched a bold new company vision to inspire people to take small, everyday actions that can add up to make a big difference for the world. Our aim is to double the size of its business while reducing its overall environmental impact. This new vision recognises the world is changing. Populations are growing. By 2050, nearly three billion more people will occupy the planet and by only 2030, world food production will have to increase by 50 per cent to meet the growing need for food.
