plastic packaging waste
Hindustan Unilever (HUL) will achieve 100% plastic waste collection this calendar year. This means the FMCG giant will collect and process more plastic packaging waste than it uses. In the process, HUL will become the first FMCG company of a large scale to achieve plastic waste neutrality.
This year onwards, HUL will enable the processing of over 1 lakh tonnes of post-consumer plastic waste through the collection from all states and Union Territories, covering over 100 towns. During the calendar year 2020, HUL had collected and facilitated environmentally safe disposal of almost 60,000 tonnes of plastic waste.
