UBL receives national recognition for CSR
Unilever Bangladesh set itself at an exemplary position in the country as an imitable leader in the area of corporate engagement in social development. Recently, Unilever Bangladesh was honored with a national level CSR award organised by Standard Chartered Bank and the Daily Financial Express.
Unilever Bangladesh Limited (UBL) has received an award from the Standard Chartered Financial Express joint CSR recognition initiative for its outstanding CSR contributions.
UBL Initiatives such as the Lifebuoy Friendship Hospital have given critical help to the water-locked population of Bangladesh, while the Fair & Lovely Foundation has been instrumental in empowering women.
On receiving the award Unilever Bangladesh chairman Sanjiv Mehta said: "While our primary obligation to our shareholders is to create value, we are acutely aware of our responsibilities as a corporate citizen.
"Our voluntary activities in the areas of health and education are aimed at positively enriching society while bringing our brands to life for consumers."
Over the past seven years, Unilever Bangladesh has led the way in terms of both corporate reputation and business results, with seven consecutive years of double-digit growth.
In 2005, Unilever Bangladesh was one of only two Unilever businesses in Asia to cross the magical figure of 20% growth. An inspiring growth story and a great example of living through Vitality.
