P&G Announces Progress Toward Long-Term Vision In Annual Sustainability Report

Committing to Sustainable Forestry

As a member of the Consumer Goods Forum, P&G joined other member companies in a pledge to help achieve Zero Net Deforestation by 2020. To act on this commitment, P&G is announcing two new goals. First, all virgin wood fiber in its tissue/towel and absorbent hygiene products will be third party certified by 2015. Second, all paper packaging will contain either recycled or third-party certified virgin content by 2020. In combination with P&G’s existing goal to ensure sustainable sourcing of palm oil by 2015, these goals demonstrate P&G’s commitment to working towards zero net deforestation by 2020.

Decreasing Days of Illness and Absenteeism through Handwashing Education

As part of Safeguard’s work to promote handwashing, P&G joined up with Save the Children to develop workshops in schools across Mexico. After working with more than 13,000 children in southeastern Mexico, data showed that diarrheal illness rates decreased by 50% and related school absences were down 11%.

P&G’s environmental results demonstrate progress toward its long-term environmental vision, which was announced in September 2010. The vision includes powering plants with 100% renewable energy, using 100% renewable or recycled materials for products and packaging, sending zero manufacturing or consumer waste to landfills and designing products that improve lives while conserving resources.

“We are pleased to share meaningful progress toward our long-term vision, and will continue to embrace environmental challenges as opportunities to innovate,” said Len Sauers, Global Vice President of Sustainability at P&G. “The issues we all face require collaboration and collective responsibility to address, and we are committed to working together to find solutions that ensure our improvements are delivered in an economically sustainable way.”

In addition to marking P&G’s 14 th Annual Sustainability Report, this is also the 14th consecutive year the Company has been included on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. P&G is also among the Corporate Knights “Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World” and is 5 th on Gartner’s “Top 25” list of Global Supply Chain Leaders.
