Since 2010, when P&G established environmental goals for 2020, great progress was made by reducing GHG emissions of manufacturing facilities by 52%, reducing water use by 27% and achieving “zero manufacturing waste to landfill” for all manufacturing sites.

In 2016, P&G received the special award “Resource Efficiency”, within the annual German Sustainability Awards, going to companies, that established notable actions towards recycling, circular economy and resource and energy efficiency. Further, P&G was recognized as an Organizational Leader in the 2017 Climate Leadership Awards, appreciating P&G’s active leadership within industry to address climate change and reduce GHG emissions.

Reducing its carbon emissions, prioritizing water conservation and shifting to renewable electricity were just the beginning. In 2018, P&G took a hard look and refocused the energy toward `Ambition 2030´, with a new set of goals and an embrace of new practices intended not just to reduce its footprint and conserve precious resources, but to help restore the world, ultimately leaving it better than it was found.

In 2019 P&G joined forces with industry, governments, civil society and development agencies to form The Alliance to End Plastic Waste – a non-profit organization committed to fund and incubate projects and programs that will prevent plastic waste from leaking into the environment. P&G CEO David Taylor took the lead to serve as the first Chairman of the Alliance, now comprising nearly 50 member companies and supporters across the value chain. The Alliance aims to divert millions of tons of plastic waste in more than 100 at-risk cities, improve livelihoods for millions and contribute to a circular economy.

In September 2021, P&G set a new ambition again: To achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2040, across its operations and supply chain, from raw material to retailer. P&G also shared a Climate Transition Action Plan which outlines a comprehensive approach to accelerating climate action and the key challenges ahead. In addition to the details of P&G’s net zero ambition to 2040, the Climate Transition Action Plan covers the entire lifecycle emissions of its products and packaging, across supply chain, operations, consumer use of its products, and product end of life.
