Reducing our footprint one step at a time


Reducing our footprint one step at a time
P&G Professional - Green Starts with Clean
P&G Professional is aware of the total environmental impact of cleaning products from raw materials to waste disposal. That is why we believe that GREEN starts with CLEAN.
Our P&G Professional Green & Clean program recognizes all PGP products that minimize the human and environmental impact of cleaning throughout the key phases of product lifecycle. The selection criteria to qualify for the program are:
  • RECYCABLE packaging material that minimizes the environmental impact of plastic waste
  • EFFECTIVE use of resources thanks to superior product performance and/or sustainable manufacturing operations
  • SAFE* products: as required by EU regulation 100% surfactants are biodegrada

Environmental Sustainability is Built into Everything We Do

In 2018, we released new sustainability goals called Ambition 2030. These broad- reaching goals have one purpose in mind: to enable and inspire positive impact on our environment and society while creating value for us as a company, and you - our customers.
In an effort to address two of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges--finite resources and growing consumption--we’ve focused our ambitious goals in these specific areas.

P&G Sustainability Goals for 2030

Ambition 2030: Reducing our supply chain footprint

Across our global operations, we are making intentional choices to reduce the footprint of our suppliers, buyers and manufacturing sites - sourcing sustainable materials and exploring new business models to drive circular solutions.

Goal: Reduce our footprint and aim for circular solutions based on regeneration and restoration

- 100% renewable electricity and cut GHG emissions in half at P&G sites.

- Our sites will deliver a 35% increase in water efficiency and source at least five billion liters of water from circular sources.

- Advance at least 10 significant supply chain partnerships to drive circularity on climate, water, or waste.
We are now purchasing 100% renewable electricity in the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe. 92% of our manufacturing sites are Zero Manufacturing Waste to Landfill

Goal: Protect and enhance the forests we depend upon

We use wood pulp in some of our products, and we have rigorous policies in place to make sure we’re sourcing responsibly from forests certified to the highest standards. But as we look to the future, we want to Increase our use of Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified fiber to 75% across all Family Care brands by 2025.

- Collaborate with numerous organizations to increase the global area of certified forests, while strengthening certification systems.
- Lead the charge in efforts to develop products with a Forest Positive approach. Inspired by the World Wildlife Fund, this practice will deliver health benefits that will sustain the forests we depend on.

Goal: Improve livelihoods of palm farmers

As members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, we’re committed to sourcing our palm and palm derivatives responsibly. In areas like Malaysia and Indonesia—which houses our largest supply chain and has a high density of small farmers—we’re implementing local programs to build responsible agricultural practices. This will help small farmers increase their yield while maintaining P&G sustainability standards.
