Paul Polman, in an article titled, ‘MDG [Millennium Development Goals] Success - Accelerating Action and Partnering for Impact’, says in the year 2000, members of the United Nations General Assembly made an historic commitment - to halve poverty by 2015.
Polman, who is the chief executive officer of Unilever, states that, “We have made good progress in many areas, of which we can be proud,” adding that millions of lives have been saved and millions of families now have access to clean water.
However, he is of the view that, “But the job is incomplete. We have a duty and an obligation to finish it - to end poverty in our life-time. Once and for all. Irreversibly.”
