A part of SASB, Swachhata Doot (Messenger of Cleanliness) is a volunteering programme that enables employees to become a change agent in his/her community. More than 4,000 of HUL employees across 25 factories in India have embraced a new role as agents of change. They educate and motivate their communities to adopt better Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) habits.
Since its inception in 2015, the programme has reached out to 21 million people.
Launched in December 2018, ‘Start A Little Good’ is a campaign that urges consumers to take small actions in the areas of water conservation, plastic waste management, and teaching good hygiene habits. In 2019, the programme continued to promote these practices by stressing the need to adopt three clean habits—washing hands with soap, using a toilet for defecation, and adopting safe drinking water practices.
By end of March, 2020, the campaign has reached out to around 149 million households.
Suvidha is a first-of-its-kind urban water, hygiene and sanitation community centre built in the slums of Mumbai. Currently, we have three centres operational; two centres were set-up in partnership with HSBC.
