Quality, safety and the environment

Our goal is to provide products and services that make a positive impact on our consumers. As a result, we strive to improve the environmental quality of our products, packaging and operations worldwide.

To carry out our Environmental Quality Policy, we pledge to:

  • Ensure our products, packaging and operations are safe for our employees, consumers and the environment.
  • Reduce or prevent the environmental impact of our products and packaging through their design, manufacture, distribution, use and disposal. We're passionate about innovative, practical solutions to environmental issues related to our business. We support the preservation of resources and actively encourage reuse, recycling and composting. We also partner and offer assistance to others who may contribute to progress in achieving environmental goals.
  • Meet or exceed the requirements of all environmental laws and regulations. We use environmentally sound practices, even in the absence of governmental standards. We also cooperate with governments in analyzing environmental issues and developing cost-effective, scientifically based solutions and standards.
  • Continually assess our environmental technology and programs, and monitor progress toward environmental goals. We develop and use state-of-the-art science and product life-cycle tests to assess environmental quality.
  • Provide our consumers, customers, employees, communities, public interest groups and others with relevant and appropriate factual information about the environmental quality of P&G products, packaging and operations.
  • Ensure every employee understands and is responsible for incorporating environmental quality considerations in their daily business activities. We encourage, recognize and reward individual and team leadership efforts to improve environmental quality—in and outside of work.
  • Keep operating policies, programs and resources in place to implement our Environmental Quality Policy.
