At P&G, environmental sustainability is embedded in how we do business and we are stepping up as a force for good and a force for growth by reducing our footprint across our business, delivering superior products that are sustainable without any tradeoffs in performance, and building partnerships to address the challenges we all face today.
P&G is committed to positively impacting our homes, our communities, and our planet in the following areas:
- Climate: We’re accelerating action on climate change to achieve net zero GHG emissions across our operations and supply chain by 2040. Our Climate Transition Action Plan is a detailed roadmap covering the breadth, depth, scale and collaboration of our plans to achieve net zero. This plan includes short-term 2030 goals to pace our progress, including reducing emissions across our operations by 50% and across our supply chain by 40%.
- Forestry: We’re committed to keeping forests as forests – now and for generations to come – through our Conserve, Restore, Protect, Grow approach. We are committed to zero deforestation in our supply chain – for every tree we use, at least one is regrown.
- Water: We’re driving water efficiency in both the use and production of our products and collaborating with partners to protect water in 18 water-stressed priority basins across 7 countries for the people and wildlife that call them home.
- Packaging: We’re accelerating sustainable packaging, recycling and waste management solutions to provide products that delight while helping keep waste out of nature. We’ve set 2030 goals to offer 100% reusable or recyclable packaging and reduce the virgin plastic in our packaging by 50%.
In Canada, we have accelerated our progress through packaging innovations and consumer education campaigns:
- Old Spice and Secret introduced an all-paper tube package made of 90% recycled paperboard certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
- Herbal Essences introduced new packaging for its sulfate-free bio:renew shampoos and conditioners featuring 50% recycled plastic content. The brand will plant 50,000 native trees in British Columbia to restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity and make a positive social impact around the world.
- Tide is reinventing clean on its journey to decarbonize laundry at every step – from design, manufacturing and distribution to consumer use and end of life. Tide is educating Canadians on how they can do their part at home by switching to cold water washing. Additionally, for every Tide PODS purchased at Walmart Canada during the month of April 2022, 50 cents will be donated to WWF-Canada to support nature-based solutions to fight climate change.
- Cascade is continuing to educate Canadians about the water and energy savings that result from running your dishwasher even half-full compared to handwashing. As part of Cascade’s commitment to protect and conserve nature for generations to come, for every Cascade purchased at Walmart Canada in the month of April 2022, Cascade will donate 50 cents to Earth Rangers, the kids’ conservation organization.
- P&G Good Everyday will plant one tree for every new sign up until May 31, 2022. Trees will be planted in Canada in areas devastated by natural disasters, such as wildfires.
- Our It’s Our Home campaign shows how small actions at home can make a big difference for our planet.
We are making significant progress across our key areas – Climate, Nature, Water and Waste – and ensuring that sustainability is embedded in how we do business. Together, we will continue to step up as a force for good and a force for growth to protect our planet and improve lives now and for generations to come. Click HERE to learn more.
