Cleaning up the Brantas River, Indonesia

Unilever Indonesia has a factory in East Java, 5km from the Brantas river. The river becomes heavily polluted from local industries as it passes through Surabaya. In 2001, Unilever 'adopted' four riverside villages and with local actors improved basic communal sanitation, created a household waste management process and introduced a 'greening' programme.
