MESSAGE FROM THE CEO.
I want to take this opportunity to repeat and refresh our commitment to P&G’s Citizenship efforts.
I approach this with a strong point of view. It is my personal belief that P&G is one of the most socially relevant companies on the planet. Over our 184 years, we have shown that our ability to grow is directly connected to our commitment to responsible business and doing good. Our ability to do good is in turn strengthened by our growth. We aim to be a force for growth and a force for good. We see these as inseparable.
Citizenship is how we refer to our efforts in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) areas.
We have built Citizenship into how we do business every day.
Environmental Sustainability has been embedded into how P&G does business for decades. We continually work to improve our environmental impact and enable consumers and suppliers to do the same. In September, we announced a comprehensive Climate Transition Action Plan – Net Zero 2040 – to accelerate action related to climate change. We set a new ambition to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions across our operations and supply chain by 2040, with interim 2030 goals to ensure meaningful progress this decade.
Our Community Impact work supports people and communities in difficult times. We continue to provide COVID-19 relief around the world through donations of products, cash, and personal protective equipment. At the same time, we’re supporting those who have faced fires, floods, typhoons, hurricanes and other emergencies. And our signature Community Impact initiative, the P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program, has provided more than 19 billion liters of clean water to people in need around the world.
Our Equality & Inclusion efforts are focused on helping create a world where equality and inclusion are achievable for all, inside and outside of P&G. Our diverse group of P&G people advance innovative ways to grow our business and support our communities. We use our voice through films, advertising, and programs to advance equity in our industry and society at large. We believe when brands and businesses meaningfully engage in supporting equality, it leads to a better world for all.
Ethics & Corporate Responsibility is the foundation for everything we do at P&G, including our Citizenship work. Building and sustaining a robust business for more than 180 years depends on maintaining strong ethical, compliance and quality standards across everything we do. It is a critical reason consumers trust us, partners do business with us, and shareholders invest in us.
As I shared earlier, I believe P&G is one of the most socially relevant companies on the planet. With that comes a responsibility, not only to consumers, employees, and shareowners, but also to our customers, communities, and our broader world alike.
Together, the people of P&G accept that responsibility—a responsibility none of us can deliver alone, but an objective that, together, working with each other and with valued partners, we can achieve and sustain so we can continue to be a force for growth and a force for good.
