Moving toward a long term vision by focusing on our products and our operations
P&G is the largest consumer packaged goods company in the world today. Our environmental efforts are guided by both the responsibility we have to operate sustainably as well as the opportunity these efforts present to grow our business. Our program is inspired by our long-term sustainability vision.
Our Long-Term Environmental Sustainability Vision
Our Vision, announced in 2010 includes:
- Powering our plants with 100% renewable energy
- Using 100% renewable or recycled materials in all products and packaging
- Having zero consumer or manufacturing waste going to landfills
- Designing products that delight consumers while maximizing the conservation of resources
In order to deliver our environmental vision we focus on two strategies:
We will deliver products with an improved environmental profile.
To reduce the environmental impact of our products we use life cycle analysis to understand where the biggest impact exists, so we know where to focus our innovation. Our deep understanding of the consumer enables us to develop sustainable products that will delight her, without tradeoffs in price or performance.
We will improve the environmental profile of our own operations.
We evaluate the environmental performance of our entire supply chain, including our own manufacturing facilities, our suppliers, and the logistics of our finished products. We are focused on creating efficiencies in energy, water, waste, and emissions.
