Unilever: Enhancing Investor Engagement

Unilever is a British multinational consumer goods company - one of the world’s largest, with over 400 brands and products available in over 190 countries. In 2020, Unilever announced the ‘Unilever Compass,’ their new integrated strategy. Made up of five strategic priorities, they use multiyear metrics and targets to show investors what these mean and how they plan to measure progress. 

This case study shows how to communicate with investors effectively and how effective investor engagement can be instrumental to supporting a company’s successful journey to net zero. By viewing sustainability as integral to value creation, embedding it into their business model and putting it at the core of their strategy, Unilever has consistently delivered financial results in the top third of their industry.
