Unilever Supports Sanitation and pledges to help 25 million people gain improved access to toilets

Yes, the international company Unilever will supports Sanitation and pledges to help 25 million people gain improved access to toilets... let's read how!

This commitment is part of the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan – Unilever’s blueprint for sustainable growth. It will contribute to our goal of helping one billion people improve their health and well being by 2020, and sit alongside existing goals on providing access to safe and affordable drinking water, and education on the importance of handwashing with soap.
An estimated 2.5 billion people – over one third of the world’s population – live without access to adequate sanitation. Of these, over one billion continue to defecate in the open. This has a serious impact on people’s health, nutrition, education, on gender equality and sustainable economic development. It is a global tragedy that a child dies of diseases related to poor sanitation every two minutes and it could be prevented.
“Business can and must be part of the solution in addressing global challenges that affect us all,” said Unilever CEO, Paul Polman. “That’s why we introduced the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan to positively contribute to the societies where we operate. With our portfolio of health and hygiene brands, our understanding of consumers’ needs and our global reach, we are uniquely placed to help improve people’s lives.”
