We’re Building a Business the World can be Proud of

Ten years ago we set out on a journey to become the world’s most sustainable business. To prove that growth doesn’t have to come at the expense of people and planet. To show that business can be a force for good – through actions, not just words. We've achieved many of our goals, but failed to reach others. A decade on, we're sharing what we’ve learnt along the way.

Lipton Sustainability Actions


We are dedicated to working with governments and regulatory agencies to reduce and, where possible, stop the use of pesticides – especially pesticides classified as Class III by the World Health Organisation. We also work closely with our growers, traders and producers to help them reduce and eliminate the use of pesticides, setting specific goals with real deadlines they must meet if they want to continue to work with us.


Quality and safety go hand in hand. We follow Unilever’s own Guidelines on Use of Pesticides in Sustainable Tea Sourcing These guidelines match recommendations from the relevant authoritative bodies, including the World Health Organisation, the Stockholm Convention and the Rotterdam Convention. We also recognise independent certification schemes, like the Rainforest Alliance.


We’re also committed to our education program, which helps suppliers understand our long-term goals for sustainable tea production and sets out the strict standards of pesticide and chemical use they must meet. All of this is part of our commitment to help not just brighten your day with the perfect cup of tea, but to help brighten the future of our planet too.
