Between the procurement of raw materials and the creation of a product, we strive to reduce waste, water, energy, and CO2 through systemic conservation efforts. We apply smart eco-design through innovative construction process improvements. And, we re-use where feasible, giving new life to what was once waste.
Operations & Suppliers
Our Sustainability work goes beyond the core of our manufacturing operations, extending to a holistic end-to-end view of opportunities. We deliver strong results across the supply chain, ranging from manufacturing to finished product logistics, and we engage our suppliers throughout the process.
Finished Product Logistics
In the logistics stage, we reduce waste in customization by applying more sustainable designs. We optimize transportation efficiency through a comprehensive multi-mode approach, and now go further by leveraging common “intermodal” containers across different modes of transportation.
We collaborate closely with suppliers across the entire supply chain. Our new Supplier Sustainability Board includes members from over 20 leading global suppliers and is charged with guiding the development of supplier-related Sustainability activities and goals.
- Conservation & Process Improvement
Across P&G facilities, Site Sustainability Leaders identify conservation opportunities in four environmental footprints: waste, water, energy, and C02.
- Waste Re-Use
Through the efforts of our Global Asset Recovery Purchases team (GARP), we find new opportunities for re-use of what would otherwise be waste.
We apply smart eco-design through innovative process improvements, resulting in higher design standards for P&G facilities throughout the world.
We optimize transportation through a comprehensive multi-mode approach, and now go further by leveraging common “intermodal” containers across different modes of transportation.
- Supplier Engagement
We follow strict guidelines for diversity and sustainability of our suppliers to ensure that the best thinking is brought to the table—benefiting both our business and our brands.
