P&G’s long-term sustainability vision includes the goal that all products and packaging come from 100% renewable or recycled materials. In order to meet this goal, P&G researchers have been developing very interesting innovations in sustainable sourcing across their product lines, finding new ways to work with recycled and renewable materials to ensure sustainability while maintaining product quality. For example, plastics in P&G Pantene shampoo bottles are now coming from non-petroleum sources like sugar cane, and pulp used in products like tissues, diapers or hygiene products are coming from certified sustainably managed forests. P&G has signed long-term agreements to work with third parties, like the world’s largest NGO, WWF, to help develop, verify and promote sustainable production and consumption. While it may be considered ambitious, P&G’s Sustainability Goals and Long-Term Vision are well on the way to making significant gains by 2020.
