P&G Releases 2013 Sustainability Report

Posted: November 18, 2013

Procter & Gamble Company released its 15th annual Sustainability Report, demonstrating its commitment to helping people around the world live better and more sustainably through an integrated approach to environmental and social responsibility. The report includes P&G’s sustainability results from the past fiscal year and progress updates on the company’s environmental and social responsibility goals for 2020.

“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, vice president 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.”

The report shares specific progress in P&G’s sustainability focus areas, which include: conservation of resources, renewable resources, worth from waste, comforts of home and health, and hygiene. This year, P&G reported absolute reductions in waste, water, CO2 and energy—all four of the company’s major manufacturing footprints. Highlights from this year’s report include:

Conserving resources, decreasing environmental impact

Finding worth in waste, using renewable energy

Fostering social development by investing in communities

“All of these efforts mark significant progress through partnerships toward helping make every day better for people and the planet,” said Sauers. “We look forward to deepening our existing partnerships and forging new ones as we work toward our goals and the future of 7 billion people.”
