This year, Unilever Philippines takes a big leap by bringing in a technology that would address the plastic sachet waste problem in the country. Through this German technology called CreaSolv Process, plastics in sachets could be recovered and would be turned to plastic pellets which would then be used in manufacturing new sachets for Unilever products. This investment is one of our initiative to make all our manufactured packaging reusable and recyclable come year 2025.
Our strength is from our advocacy. It has been our company’s solid source of inspiration to work towards the ambitious target of creating positive environmental impact while improving the lives and enhancing the livelihoods of millions of people.
