The Anglo-Dutch giant Unilever – with a turnover of €52 billion – which manufactures, among other things, Dove soaps and Knorr soups, has decided to take the climate emergency by the horns. It has set up a €1 billion fund that will invest in projects designed to reduce its carbon impact to zero by 2039, 11 years ahead of the target set by the Paris agreements. Unilever’s greenhouse gas emissions are the equivalent of 60 million carbon dioxide. The fund will invest in reforestation, water conservation and carbon sequestration projects. Unilever will use satellite monitoring, geolocation and blockchaining to improve the traceability and transparency of its supply chain. Other food giants, such as Nestlé, are announcing similar programmes.
