Bru Sustainability Actions

Reducing waste from manufacturing

Our factories have identified innovative ways to reuse various non-hazardous waste streams and maintain the status of 'zero non-hazardous waste to landfill' in factories and offices across HUL. This was done by maximising reuse and recycling of all non-hazardous waste in environmentally friendly ways. As compared to 2008, the total waste generated from our factories in 2019 has reduced by 63%. All our factories are also equipped with pre-processing facilities such as waste segregation and waste reduction at source, thus improving recyclability.

Reusable, recyclable or compostable plastic packaging

Our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) addresses the global issue of plastic waste and is committed to ensuring that 100% of our plastic packaging is reusable, recyclable, or compostable by 2025. In order to support our goal, we have committed to halving our use of plastic, by reducing the absolute use of plastic packaging by more than 100,000 tonnes and accelerating our use of recycled plastic. In 2019, we disposed of more than 39,000 tonnes of plastic waste in environment-friendly ways in India.

Reducing packaging

By 2030, we aim to halve the greenhouse gas impact of our products, by eliminating over 100,000 tonnes of plastic from our packaging. We have resized sachets across our hair and home care portfolio and reduced thickness of aluminium cans for deodorants, in order to save plastic. A key part of our sustainability programme, this requires us to speed up reusable, refillable, and no plastic product innovations. Besides, packaging innovation techniques such as our polymer and material use optimisation have also helped us save over 3,800 tonnes of polymer, 102 tonnes of aluminium and 2,700 tonnes of paper across categories, in 2019.
