P&G Releases Sustainability Report

November 18, 2013

Highlights milestones and progress in 15th annual report.

Procter & Gamble Company has released its 15th annual Sustainability Report, providing results from the past fiscal year and progress updates on its environmental and social responsibility goals for 2020.

According to the CPG giant, through a combination of consumer education and partnerships with washing machine suppliers, P&G helped enable the number of global laundry loads washed in cold water to increase from 38% to 50%.

On the internal side of the sustainability story, P&G highlighted other successes, such as a 25% water use reduction at Oxnard, CA site, which will result in a cost savings of more than $900,000 on an annual basis.

Also, P&G committed to convert approximately 20% of its North America for-hire transportation network to natural gas powered trucks over the next two years. Brands that will be delivered by natural gas powered trucks include Dawn, Gain, Downy and Tide. By meeting this goal, it is expected P&G will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 5,000 metric tons (or the equivalent greenhouse gas emissions from 1,000 passenger vehicles for a year).

Over the past fiscal year, P&G said that more than 99.35% of all materials entering its plants were beneficially used in products and through recycling, reuse, and conversion of waste to energy. Additionally, more than 50 of the company’s global sites now send zero manufacturing waste to landfill, including every site in Germany.

 “P&G’s commitment to meeting our sustainability goals year over year not only positively impacts people and the environment, but continues to evolve our business and support our top and bottom lines,” said Len Sauers, VP of sustainability at P&G. “Every day, we’re inspired to develop innovative products that help people live more sustainably, while delivering cost savings through operational eco-efficiencies.”
