REUTERS: Consumer packaged goods giant Unilever Plc said on Monday it would seek shareholder approval on its plans to tackle climate change, making it the world's largest company to put such a move up for a vote.

Shareholders will be allowed to vote on steps including reducing emissions to net zero and eliminating deforestation from its supply chain, the company said.
