Case Study: Unilever | INWK

GOING GREEN WITH UNILEVER 

INWK accelerates Unilever’s move to sustainable sources of wood-based materials throughout its entire North American market.

Six years ago, Unilever pledged to boost revenue by 100% while cutting its environmental footprint in half by 2020.​

As one of Unilever’s top global partners and its exclusive North American print provider, INWK is committed to the consumer package goods giant’s environmental pledge, specifically reducing its environmental impact by relying solely on sustainable sources of paper and pulp.

In partnership, we engineered Unilever’s move toward responsible sources of paper, board, and labels in its entire North American print market in 2015. 

STRONGER TOGETHER

Para reducir el impacto ambiental global de Unilever, hemos colaborado con el líder en bienes de consumo para lograr algunas metas específicas, entre ellas cambiar a:

  • 75 % de materiales sustentables de fibra a base de madera para 2015

  • 100 % de materiales sustentables de fibra a base de madera para 2020

EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS

No solo alcanzamos las metas ambientales de Unilever, sino que fuimos más allá. Propusimos cambiar a papel, cartón y etiquetas 100 % sustentables en todo el mercado norteamericano de Unilever antes del 1 de enero de 2015, y lo logramos.

Hallamos fuentes sustentables para casi el total (93 %) de los millones de gasto en fibra a base de madera que manejamos para Unilever en los EE. UU. La pronta transición también permitió salvar miles de árboles. Lo que es más importante, al recurrir a nuestra base de datos exclusiva de imprentas de los EE. UU. con certificación del Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), lo logramos sin tener que aumentar los costos.

THE LONG VIEW

By reducing Unilever’s North American environmental footprint ahead of schedule, we demonstrated our value as an elite Unilever partner. More work remains, however. INWK and Unilever plan to enhance the sustainability of Unilever’s man-made materials within the U.S.

IN THEIR WORDS

UNILEVER

The INWK program “is the first of its kind to be implemented within printed point-of-sales material [at Unilever]... We anticipate this transition will help lead to similar progressions in other Unilever markets.”
