Paul Polman welcomes launch of SUN Business Network

10 December 2012

The SUN Business Network was launched in London on 10 December 2012.

Speaking that the launch, Paul Polman, Chief SBN_Event_Report_Download ReportExecutive Officer, Unilever, and Member, SUN Lead Group, said:

“The SUN movement is of its time – a coalition of the willing that breaks the mould – that cuts through the institutional barriers to take action, with a clear vision and road map for a Zero Hunger world. I see this event as a rallying cry – as we seek to scale up our joint efforts to forge new forms of transformational partnership. As the old African proverb states, “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.” As responsible business leaders of food and beverage companies, we cannot be mere bystanders – rather we must use and exert our collective influence in support of effecting lasting change. We need to trail blaze – not trail behind.”
