We have lots of good news to share – and it’s captured in one place – the 2019 Citizenship Report. Launched today, this annual report highlights the hero brands, people and priorities of our company that work every day to be a force for good and a force for growth.
Our leaders emphasize specific areas of Citizenship - Community Impact, Diversity & Inclusion, Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability built on the foundation of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility – and the report shares examples of activities and partnerships we’re leading to contribute to the global communities where we live and work.
We encourage our consumers, shareholders and employees to take a few minutes to review the report and proudly share with family and friends. It’s inspiring to see the positive difference we make in so many lives.
Some of the highlights include:
Community Impact: We delivered our 15 billionth liter of clean drinking water through the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program, and we are committed to delivering 25 billion liters by 2025. We also helped refugees in Turkey and provided aid to more than 25 natural disasters with every day essentials.
Diversity & Inclusion: We were a platinum sponsor of World Pride in NY with about 50 sites around the world showing support through Pride activities. We also launched “The Look,” the sequel to the award-winning film, “The Talk,” to continue the conversation about racial bias. We also stepped into the world of neurodiversity to hire individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
Gender Equality: We continue our focus on creating a world where everyone sees equal. Our Always brand launched its #EndPeriodPoverty to help keep girls in school, and Secret was the first official sponsor to publicly support the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s fight for equal pay. We also hosted #WeSeeEqual campaigns around the world to support its Gender Equality strategies.
Environmental Responsibility: In April, P&G marked the one-year anniversary of Ambition 2030 – the environmental progress we’re leading within P&G brands, our supply chain, in society and with employees. We also partnered with TerraCycle to introduce the “milkman” concept of reusable packaging with Loop. To address plastic waste, we joined forces with more than 40 companies to form the Alliance to End Plastic Waste chaired by our own CEO, David Taylor.
