Sustainability is integrated into our company’s purpose of touching and improving the lives of consumers now and for generations to come.
P&G does this through the products and services it offers, manufacturing in an environmentally responsible manner, and through its social responsibility programs that improve lives for those in need around the world.
We define sustainability broadly at P&G to include both environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
As part of our strategy to grow responsibly, we will work towards a long-term environmental sustainability vision that includes:
- Powering our plants with 100% renewable energy
- Using 100% renewable or recycled materials for all products and packaging
- Having zero consumer and manufacturing waste go to landfills
- Designing products that delight consumers while maximizing our conservation of resources
This vision is stretching, and we believe it will take us decades to achieve. We have set strategies in Products and Operations that help us deliver against our vision. To ensure we are holding ourselves accountable, we have two sets of goals, for 2012 and 2020, within Products and Operations.
P&G’s focus on purpose-inspired growth drives us to not only serve our consumers with superior product propositions, but also truly touch and improve the lives of more consumers, more completely by contributing towards the communities we operate in. Live, Learn and Thrive is P&G’s global corporate cause, focusing on helping children in need around the world. The programs enable children to get off to a healthy start, receive access to education and build skills for life.
Since 2007, P&G has improved the lives of over 315 million children. In India, our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives ‘Shiksha’ and the ‘Parivartan - Whisper School Program’ are helping children from lesser-privileged backgrounds, by giving them access to health and education.
