null Can consumption become sustainable? Join the Unilever debate

On Monday 15 November, Unilever is launching a groundbreaking ten-year sustainability plan - a strategy which will explain how the company intends to reduce its overall environmental footprint while continuing to grow the business.

The event will feature a panel debate between leading experts on how consumers can continue to consume more without exceeding the earth's already fragile natural limits. What must be done by companies like Unilever if economic growth is to become sustainable?

The launch event and debate will be broadcast live via an interactive webcast where there will also be an opportunity to ask the panel questions and join in the debate.

The panel will include:

  • Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever
  • Jonathan Porritt, founder director, Forum for the Future
  • John Elkington, executive chairman, Volans, co-founder of SustainAbility
  • Dr Val Curtis, director, Hygiene Centre, London School of Hygiene
  • Gavin Neath, global senior vice president for sustainability, Unilever
