Sustainability at P&G

P&G is committed to touching and improving lives in a way that preserves and protects the planet. We have established a long-term vision which can only be achieved by setting short-term goals to ensure we stay on track.

We want people who choose P&G brands to know that our products are created with a commitment to sustainability. From formulation to manufacturing to package design and shipment, our products are made responsibly and without trade-offs in performance or value.

Our approach to bring our strategies to life and accelerate progress is to Preserve, Partner and Pioneer.

We Preserve

preserveWe are working to use less while doing more by reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive impact on the communities we serve.

Our Pampers teams in Western Europe cut packaging by 80% by moving from “box-to-bag” packaging, saving 6,000+ tons of material, 430+ truckloads and 160+ tons of CO2 emissions per year.

In the last 20 years, Pampers has reduced 50% of the weight of each diaper and 70% of the external packaging.

We Partner

partnerWe can accomplish more with partners than we can alone.

P&G plans to meet its North America electricity demands by using 100 percent wind power to make iconic Fabric & Home Care brands, such as Tide and Dawn. This is possible thanks to a new partnership with EDF Renewable Energy (EDF RE) which will see a new Texas based wind farm generate 370,000 MWh of electricity each year. The wind farm will be fully operational in December 2016.

With support of more than 150 global partners, our key corporate cause, The P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program, marked its tenth year supporting families and children in some of the most remote parts of the world with clean drinking water.

We Pioneer

pioneerWe aim to improve tomorrow through industry-leading innovation.

We are turning agricultural corn waste into a key cleaning ingredient for Tide Coldwater. Working with DuPont, we developed a breakthrough process that will turn 7,000 tons of agricultural waste annually into cellulosic ethanol. Tide Coldwater is the first brand in the world on a path to blend cellulosic ethanol in a scalable and commercial way.
