But while P&G Chemicals brings solutions to its customers around the world, it does so with a sustainable profile. On the corporate level, P&G has set many external sustainability goals that must be met by 2012 or earlier. And P&G Chemicals plays an important part in the company’s plan to meet these goals.
“One measure of innovation is how we run our plants and processes more sustainably,” explained Mr. Nelson.
And the company’s supply network certainly has the global reach with more than 20 facilities in 10 countries throughout Asia, the Americas and Europe. In addition, P&G Chemicals has established strategic partnerships throughout the world, including a fatty acid alcohol production plant in Malaysia via a joint venture with Felda, an ester-to-alcohol sourcing manufacturing agreement in Germany with Sasol, an amines production partnership in China with Feixiang Chemicals, and in the U.S., an agreement with Twin Rivers Technologies (TRT) to produce whole cut and fractionated fatty acids and oleic and stearic fatty acids fatty acids and sucrose polyesters.
