Environmental Sustainability Initiatives in India

Products & Packaging

We aim to continue to delight consumers with meaningful sustainable innovations that reduce the environmental impact of our products across the full product lifecycle.

Sustainable Product Innovations in India
We innovate to incorporate sustainability criteria into our products in a number of ways - from formulation to packaging. In doing so, we find ways to deliver significant sustainability improvement without asking the consumer to make trade-offs in performance or value.

  • Ariel and Tide: Pioneers in introducing compact detergents in India using less raw material and packaging material, while ensuring superior consumer value
  • whisper and pampers
  • Whisper and Pampers: Re-designed packaging to reduce thickness, thus reducing raw material usage and saving paper
  • Olay
  • Olay: Re-designed pump package reduces plastic consumption and is 25% lighter. Saves over 400 tons of packaging a year (the weight of a Boeing 747)

Operations and Suppliers

We aim to continually improve the environmental profile of our operations, focusing on energy, waste, C02, and water.

Environmental Sustainability Initiatives by P&G Operations in India

P&G’s Baddi plant has adopted various innovative ideas to transform 575 tons of scrap material into useful daily needs. The melted plastic is being used for making chairs while the metal laminate is being applied as mixture with cement for construction. 380 tons of shampoo production waste has been converted to car washing agent. 5.5 tons of manufacturing scrap of skin care product has been turned into tire polishing material. The plant has achieved 40% reduction in carbon footprint over the last 3 years

P&G’s Goa plant has recycled and reused over 4000 tons of scrap, which equates to the daily paper & plastic waste generated by 12 times the population of a major Indian metro

P&G’s Bhiwadi plant has saved energy equivalent to the daily energy need of more than 12,000 people in India. The plant saved 13.3 million liters of water last year, enough to fill more than 5 Olympic sized pools.
