P&G raises bar on greenhouse gas emissions reductions

Procter & Gamble (P&G) has set a new goal to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions from its facilities by 30% by 2020. The goal was developed in partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF). 

In addition, the multinational consumer goods giant is joining the Climate Savers Program, a program sponsored by WWF to enable leadership companies to collaborate and accelerate their efforts to address climate change.

“Climate change is a global issue and we believe everyone – companies, governments, and individuals – all have a role to play,” said Len Sauers, vice president, global sustainability for P&G. “We felt it was important to come forward with an ambitious, science-based goal to help do our part to address the challenges that climate change poses.”

P&G has been working in partnership with WWF to develop its new goal and advance its efforts on climate change. “This is a significant commitment that will lead to measurable reductions in P&G’s greenhouse gas emissions while inspiring other companies to step up and take action,” said Suzanne Apple, WWF's senior vice president, private sector engagement.

P&G says it plans to achieve its new goal by maintaining a focus on energy conservation and increasing its use of renewable energy.
