Sustainability is built into P&G’s vision, strategy and purpose: to improve lives, now and for generations to come. This drives and inspires everyone at P&G every day. In this section, sustainability is defined as both environmental sustainability and social responsibility. See how P&G is using its leadership in sustainability to achieve its goals for 2020 and beyond.
While questions of sustainable living and ecological footprints have risen to prominence recently, its history dates back to the 1950s. P&G was at the forefront then, doing social responsibility, sustainable innovation and environmental sustainability long before these terms were coined. Follow the history of P&G sustainability as it has taken the lead in developing and promoting sustainable practices for over more than 50 years.
