Sustainability Pillar Governance - The Consumer Goods Forum

The work of the Sustainability Pillar is co-sponsored at the Board level by Marc Bolland, Chief Executive Officer of Marks & Spencer, and Paul Polman, Chief Executive Officer of Unilever. As Board sponsors they will actively drive and support of the work of the Environmental Sustainability Committee and present the Committee’s work with their peers during bi-annual Board meetings.
The role of the Environmental Sustainability Committee, led by Mike Barry of Marks & Spencer and Jeff Seabright of Unilever, is to identify priority issues for the Sustainability Pillar and recommend corresponding actions to our Board. It steers the existing and new projects of the Pillar, keeps our Board informed on major sustainability developments impacting the consumer goods industry, and encourages broader implementation across the industry, while individual members also act as champions of their own sustainability projects within their own companies.
