Our future is determined by the way we all live our lives. That’s why we strive to improve everyday life for millions of people and the world around us. It is embodied in everything we do. In every idea, every product and every human interaction.
We believe that outstanding taste experiences should be easy for everyone. That there is always a better way to care for our clothes to make them look and feel new longer. That the home should be a place for wellbeing, a place to care for ourselves and our loved ones.
To succeed, we continuously rethink and improve our ways of working – internally, and together with our customers and partners.
By creating desirable solutions and great experiences that enrich peoples’ daily lives and the health of our planet, we want to be a driving force in defining enjoyable and sustainable living.
Our purpose, to shape living for the better, is the greater “why” that gives direction. It’s our common goal, defining what we’re working for and providing the key ingredient for a strong, sustainable and scalable organizational culture. It guides the solutions we create, the people we employ, behaviors we encourage and the decisions we take.
