Performance at a Glance

Measuring progress toward our sustainability goals

2020 Goals Progress

We are working toward our long-term vision of:

  • Powering all 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 the conservation of resources

Since 2010, we have established 14 goals to help us reach our long-term vision. This year, we’ve added four new goals and revised one of our existing goals. Our 18 goals and progress are outlined below.

Goal
Progress
Conservation of Resources
Reduce energy use at P&G facilities and total CO2 (Scope 1 and Scope 2) by 20% per unit of production by 2020.*
Since 2010, we have reduced our energy usage by about 7% and our total CO2 emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2) by about 14% per unit of production.
Ensure 70% of all washing machine loads are washed in cold water.
Since FY10/11, our data indicates the percentage of global washing machine loads washed in cold water increased from 38% to 53%.
Reduce truck transportation kilometers by 20% per unit of production.*
We continue to make progress by optimizing distribution routes and increasing the use of multi-modal transportation to reduce our truck-based kilometers per unit of production.
Reduce packaging by 20% per consumer use.*
Since 2010, we have reduced packaging by about 7% per consumer use.
Reduce water use in manufacturing facilities by 20% per unit of production, with conservation efforts focused on water-stressed regions.*
New goal announced October 13, 2014; we will report progress next year.
Provide 1 billion people access to water-efficient products.
New goal announced October 13, 2014; we will report progress next year.
Double use of recycled resin in plastic packaging.*
New goal announced October 13, 2014; we will report progress next year.
Ensure 90% of product packaging is either recyclable or programs are in place to create the ability to recycle it.
New goal announced October 13, 2014; we will report progress next year.
Renewable Resources
Ensure plants are powered by 30% renewable energy.
Our use of renewable energy is about 8%. We continue to evaluate and expand our portfolio of energy sources.
Create technologies by 2020 to substitute top petroleum-derived raw materials with renewable materials, as cost and scale permit.
Revised goal announced October 13, 2014; we will report progress next year.
Ensure traceability of palm oil and palm kernel oil to our supplier mills by December 31, 2015, and to plantations by 2020 to ensure zero deforestation in our palm oil supply chain, with a commitment to working with small farmers.
We continue making progress against our goals for full traceability in our palm oil supply chain. Please view details of our progress on pg.com/sustainability
Have 100% of the virgin wood fiber used in our tissue/towel and absorbent hygiene products be third-party certified by 2015.
About 99% of our virgin wood fiber was third-party certified.
Have 40% of the virgin wood fiber used in our tissue/towel products be Forest Stewardship Council® certified by 2015.
54% of the virgin wood fiber used in our tissue/towel products was FSC© certified — exceeding our 2015 goal one year ahead of schedule.
Have 100% of our paper packaging contain either recycled or third-party-certified virgin content by 2020.
96% of materials surveyed this year were either recycled or third-party-certified virgin content.
Worth From Waste
Conduct pilot studies in both the developed and developing world to understand how to eliminate landfilled/dumped solid waste.
Feasibility studies have been completed for the lead pilot city for the Waste to Worth project in the Philippines. This year, P&G also became a founding member of the Closed Loop Fund, which will provide low- to no-interest loans to support projects intended to increase recycling in the U.S.
Reduce manufacturing waste to landfill to less than 0.5% of input materials.
We reduced the manufacturing waste to landfill to 0.4% — exceeding our 2020 goal six years ahead of schedule.
Social Program Goals
Improve the lives of 50 million people each year through our social sustainability programs.
P&G has exceeded this goal for 2013/14, with a focus on providing programs and daily essential products when and where they are needed most and perform at their best.
Save one life every hour by 2020.
The P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program delivered 1.4 billion liters of clean water this year and is on track to meet our goal by providing 2 billion liters of drinking water each year by 2020.
