LEED On: Hindustan Unilever Limited

Geetanjali Prasad

‘We are changing the way business is done," is the tagline of Unilever. Standing true to it, the company, while retaining its status as one of the world’s largest fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) manufacturers, also ensures it reduces its impact on the environment. Unilever has been practicing sustainability since the last century, during which time it has also grown to serve 2.5 billion users for over 400 brands on any given day.

In keeping with changing times and technology, the global FMCG giant has committed to using the LEED green building rating system for all its projects around the world, not just manufacturing facilities, but also office spaces. In India, Hindustan Unilever Limited’s corporate headquarters in Mumbai and its manufacturing facility in Khamgaon, Maharashtra, have both achieved LEED Gold certification and serve as remarkable examples of sustainable campuses.

Apart from scoring high on energy and water efficiency, waste management and indoor air quality, Unilever has been rigorously following its "Sustainable Living Plan," which requires the making and use of its products and the operation of its office spaces in an environmentally conscious way.
