Paul Polman – Serving Society

Paul Polman – A┬áPortrait

Paul Polman (CEO Unilever) is honored for his exceptional drive to successfully combine entrepreneurship and sustainable development. Not only in his role as Unilever CEO, but also in his public positions, e.g. the International Business Council of the World Economics Forum and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.

This is one of ten portraits we created for the University of Groningen on the occasion of its 400th anniversary. Each of the portrayed men and women was awarded an honorary doctorate. These videos express the personality and passion of these leading international professors in diverse fields of research.
