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.”
