"Rule of law is a basis for global prosperity and Ukraine's economic rebound. Improving rule of law for business should be a central part of the long-standing reform effort. 93% of our members prioritize judicial reform and rule of law as the #1 strategic step for Ukraine's Government to take for economic growth, business climate improvement, and attracting top-caliber FDI", Andy Hunder, President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine.
📅 Join us on Tuesday, November 2, at 4:00 PM Kyiv time (10:00 AM ET), for the high-level virtual panel discussion "Rally for Rule of Law in Ukraine. Time to Take Action", organized jointly with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

🌱 Mars Ukraine follows a Sustainable in a Generation Plan that guides three interconnected areas for purposeful growth: Healthy Planet, Thriving People, and Nourishing Wellbeing. Their commitment to a healthy planet means transforming the way Mars work, from how they source materials to the energy they use to make products. Mars is already using or purchasing renewable electricity to cover more than 54% of its total electricity footprint, including 100% at the sites in Australia, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Lithuania, Mexico, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom. They're on track to add India to this list by the end of 2021. Beyond these 11 countries, Mars is working to increase renewable electricity sourcing around the globe and exploring a renewable thermal pilot project.
🌱 Unilever Ukraine in collaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Rijk Zwaan and KLM launched a large-scale eco-flashmob in 2019 to plant 1 million trees. The company's employees, together with colleagues from the Embassy and Dutch companies, have planted 8000 trees at the same time during 1 day. As a result, #Sharing_a_healthy_future_for_Ukraine flashmob campaign on trees planting became an important eco-investment of the Dutch business in preserving the environment and ensuring the ecological safety of Ukraine. Since 2015, all Unilever production sites worldwide have been operating according to the Zero Waste to Landfill principle. Accordingly, since 2015, all offices of the company and the factory from the moment of its foundation (2016) have not taken waste for disposal. Separate waste collection is organized at all sites. All industrial and other non-hazardous waste is sent for processing and use in other areas.
